It is easy to see what to put on the resume. What will the rung to call the attention of the hiring manager? Is the format influence the decision? Maybe you think it’s better to include information rather than less, but loaded with unnecessary filler curriculum could guarantee a place in the stack rejected.
Here are five things you should consider not put on your resume.
- Description of Objectives
The description of objectives, which usually starts with “A job that …”, while it is considered something of the past. Employers are not going to read your CV to find out what matters most in a job; want this document to tell them why they should choose you. If you’re going to include something at the beginning of the leaf, which is a summary of what you would say personally if given a minute to talk. Please refer to your most important skills and significant achievements worth noting.
- References Available upon Request
Include a list of references or the phrase “References available upon request” is not necessary, because it is expected to have references, if an employer requests them. Instead of taking a valuable part of the space, create a separate document with references and their contact information, and have it ready to send or deliver it as needed.
- Outdated or Irrelevant Information
CV in what matters is quality. Hiring managers do not have time to read three pages with the positions that you occupied since dogs were walking in high school. Scan and remove paragraph of experience what you have done for over a decade, especially if it is not relevant to the position you are applying. Instead, focus on the background of experience and education that show you are competent and are up to date with the skills and the latest technology.
- Personal Attributes
Unless the employment is of a model or another in which the appearance is important, do not include a photo. Most employers should not take into account the personal appearance; just want to know if you are good for jobs. The same applies to personal attributes such as height, weight and age.
- False Claims
It should go without saying that the inaccuracies and embellishments in education and experience should have no place in the curriculum. Before running the risk of getting caught, think: why would you want a job if you are not prepared for it? If you do not know what you do, the game will end soon, will stay again without jobs and important’ve closed doors.
