CV Tips (Part Two)
Seven Things to Exclude from any CV
Remember to keep your CV concise and to the point – and never include any of these!
1. Salary information – unless specifically requested. This should be discussed face to face with the future employer.
2. Jargon or Acronyms that aren’t widely used or likely to be understood by a reader.
3. Your photograph – this not yet an acceptable
4. References - these can be left till a later stage (unless your career has been very unstable with lots of different jobs).
5. Extensive academic information - Keep qualifications concise and include your grades where necessary. A recent graduate will have more emphasis on this section and experienced candidates need only give an overview.
6. Reasons for leaving past jobs – leave for discussion at interview negatively.
7. Too much personal information – Details of Date of Birth, Nationality and Driving Licence details are fine to include - however religion, marital status, health and long lists of hobbies are not needed. A few personal interests are OK.
