Top 3 list of what not to include in your CV

Most of us know what to include in a CV and how to structure one, however it’s sometimes not clear what shouldn’t go on a CV. Here’s our top 3 list of what not to include in your CV…

Hold back on irrelevant tasks and responsibilities 

You may often hear that it’s a bad idea to list past jobs that aren’t relevant to the new role you are applying for, however you have to be very careful with this as you don’t want to create any employment gaps which may put off the employer.

Instead, our advice would be to limit the information you provide for certain jobs that don’t bear any relevance to the new role, and don’t have any transferable skills. You do however have to be very careful not to omit a previous job by assuming that just because it was in a completely different industry, it has no bearing for the future.

If the new job relies heavily on communication and selling skills, then even your job as a waiter may be worth elaborating on if you don’t have many other examples. However, if you’ve had other roles after this that are far better to showcase these skills, then it may not be important to list lots of tasks and responsibilities as a waiter.

Your main focus is to highlight and elaborate on all of the relevant past roles to ensure the recruiter easily notices that you are perfectly suited for the job. There is no need to create a huge long list for every single role you’ve ever had when the hiring manager is clearly interested in only what will benefit their company.

Don’t include personal information

There is no need to include certain personal information on your CV like marital status, religious beliefs, your age, and so on.

None of this information is important to how well you can perform in the role, and there is no point in allowing yourself to be judged before you even get a chance for an interview. We’d like to think we live in a world without judgment or discrimination, but unfortunately there are still cases of this and it is also of course hard to ever know if you were not to be asked for an interview.

So to avoid any chance of this happening it is best to only include your name and contact details.

Don’t embellish or lie on your CV 

You may feel like embellishing certain facts about your skills and experience is a better way to get a job interview, and this may be true, however it’s something we strongly advise against. There are lots of ways this can go wrong and you can be easily caught out at any stage of the process. Possibly from the recruiter reading the CV or during the interview.

The most common way for an employer to realise that you embellished your CV is when you actually start working for them. If you are not capable of performing as well as you professed on your CV, then you are of course going to come up short in the role.

It also obviously goes without saying that blatant lies on your CV is going to cause even more problems for your employer as well as yourself. It’s one thing to embellish information, but to actually lie about any aspects of your skills, experience or qualifications is just unfair to all involved.
