CV Writing……. is such a pain at times. Especially when you have to tailor and change specific items for specific jobs that you are applying for. To prevent undue stress, here are some ‘mistakes’ that people might place on their CV:
1. Including your DOB and postal address – Believe it or not, employers who see your real age or where you are currently living may not consider you for interview. At first glance, they will dismiss your application because you are too young or live too far away.
2. Putting in ALL your experience – Don’t clutter your CV. Only put in experience related to the position you are applying for. This only applies to people with more than 3 jobs in their lifetime. Use Linkedin for the additional experience, not your CV.
