Remove these from your resume ASAP!

Irrelevant hobbies and interests: Unless it’s relevant, don’t include them.

Too many soft skills: Include more hard skills and achievements

Your professional headshot: Do not include any pictures on your resume

Personal pronouns: Do not write your bullets with, “I managed…”. Just start with, “Managed…”.

The wrong kind of email: AOL and Hotmail are out! Gmail and outlook are more current.

Your mailing address (if you’re applying out-of-state): If you want to include your city and state, that works, but your personal home address, not necessary.

Job positions older than 10 to 15 years: Expand on your experience in the past 10 years. Anything after, just include company name, job title and dates.
