20 Things You Should Remove from Your Résumé Before Applying for that Job

Securing jobs are becoming herculean task partly because of the abundance of the human resource and partly because our resume do little to assure prospective employers

If you want to pass that test, you need to have some solid qualifications — and the perfect résumé to highlight them.

Ghapage.com in consultation with stake holders in the employment sectors have listed 20 things you should immediately remove from your CV to make it more appealing to the prospective employer

1 Irrelevant work experience

Make sure to add work experience in the direction of the position or job you’re applying for

2. Personal details

There is no need to include your marital status, religious preference, political affiliation or social security number. This might have been the standard in the past, but I bet you this information could lead to discrimination, which is illegal, so there’s no need to include it.

3. Objective

If wrote an application, it’s certainly obvious you want the job.

4. More than one phone number

One number should be on your résumé and it should be your personal cell number so that you can control who answers your incoming phone calls and text messages.

No need to add several phone numbers because this pops up with one question, “Is this person stable?”

5. Hobbies

Nobody really cares about your hobbies and it’s not relevant to the job you’re applying for, so save space, energy, ink and time.
