An anonymous reader writes: From the columnist who brought us "Forging a Head" (http://sciencecareers.sciencemag.org/career_magazine/previous_issues/articles/2011_04_22/caredit.a1100035), a list of real-life resume mistakes that you should avoid making. For example: Some "action words" should be avoided: hampered, cavorted, impeded, snorted, confounded, and defenestrated, to cite just a few examples. It's also best not to write, "I was educated on the streets."
