Don’t include your age, marital status, religious preference etc. This might have been the standard in the past, but all of this information can be used to discriminate candidates and companies shouldn’t really ask for it anyway. Also, don’t include your hobbies. Nobody cares. If it’s not relevant to the job you’re applying for, it’s a waste of space and a waste of the company’s time.
An Unprofessional Email Address
If you still use an old email address, like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, it’s time to pick a new one. It only takes a minute or two, and it’s free. We recommend setting up a dedicated ‘job search’ email account.
Current Business Info
This is not only dangerous, it’s stupid. Do you really want employers calling you at work? How are you going to handle that? Oh, and by the way, your current employer can monitor your emails and phone calls. Could get awkward.
You shouldn’t indicate your previous, or desired, salary in a résumé. A CV is intended to showcase your professional experience and skills. Salary comes later in the interview process.
Words like “synergy”, “dynamic” and “bluesky” have become so overused, they have more or less lost any meaning. They just indicate that your vocabulary is so limited that you have to rely on what other people are saying.
