Most Java/J2EE resumes fail to make an impression or fail to stand out from the competition because they

-- Fail to highlight achievements & don't use action verbs.
-- Uses ordinary phrases without being results oriented and credible.
-- Markets him/her as just a techie (not as a well-rounded candidate)
-- 5-7 pages packed with irrelevant and trivial information fulfilling HIS/HER needs NOT the employer’s needs.
-- Starts with “responsibilities included” in many places
-- One size fits all resume. The same resume is emailed or reprinted as required. This is wasting an opportunity to present you in the best possible way.
-- Important information is scattered throughout the pages in the resume.

Starts with a standard format:

--Elaborate contact details.

--Leaving out the objective, especially, if you are a novice or making a career change.
--Elaborate career objectives.
--Education details listing every course details and certificates.
--Employment history listing every trivial and non related task.
--Large skills list and failing to include relevant and highly sought after skills.
