 11. Grammatical errors:
If you are not good at it, accept it. Do not ever send a resume across, with grammatical errors and spelling errors. It directly creates a negative impression about your education, communication skills, and also poses you as a lazy person, who does not bother to read his/her resume before sending it. Do check your resume for the same, and take some expert opinion, if necessary.

12. Hobbies:
How will the employer benefit if you are good at cooking or bungee jumping? Then what is the point in including the same in your resume? If you have any hobbies that relate to your work or you think would prove beneficial to your work, mention it or else exclude the same from your resume.

13. Social Security Number:
Give your personal details like contact number, address, etc., but do not mention your Social Security Number on the resume. It could reach anyone, and could be misused.

14. Photograph:
Photographs should not be included unless asked for. Usually jobs like receptionist, flight steward, air hostess, etc., focus on physical appearance, and thus one needs to send a photograph with the resume. Otherwise, do not send it.
