The job history or work experience section is the most important part of your resume, yet it's the section where people make the most mistakes that can cause rejection.

Some of these mistakes include the following:

- Listing too many bullet points
- Not listing enough bullet points

There are a few reasons why this happens, which I discuss in the video.
