#1 resume mistake

The most common mistake I've seen on resumes in the last several weeks is the use of "lead" as the past tense of the verb "to lead". I especially see this on manager resumes because managers have usually led teams and projects.

I don't hold it against anybody because it's an easy mistake to make, but it does make me think of heavy pipes and Miss Scarlet in the Conservatory. Every time.
