10 Things You Should Never Include on Your Resume
Bangalore: As the trends are changing in the job market, you must know what you should not write in the resume and what should be written. There are many things which you probably want to tell your future employer. But don’t let your resume as an image of a salesperson’s mouth. It is better to keep a safer line while you tempt to give a life story of yours in resume. Yeah, your hiring manger should not be expecting a short story of your life but your greatest professional achievements and academic achievements which can prove you as a right candidate for the applied job.
1. Certain Personal Information
The only personal information you must include is the contact details. Your postal address, email address, phone and fax numbers are listed as the ‘must included’ list on your resume. Earlier days, we have seen giving the details about religion, sex, age, ethnicity and sometimes even the political identity. If these details are not directly related to the job you applying for, you should avoid mentioning them on your resume as any discrimination based on those details is considered as illegal.
2. Faking about Educational Background
Any fudged information is not appreciated on a resume especially when it comes to educational background. In fact, it is the very falsifying detail some of the candidates tend to detail. Covering up your academy failures, fabricate degrees and manipulating certificates are the major faked educational details which you should avoid. When it comes to interview, you will be asked to attend skill based tests as the corporate world has already recognized the failure of Indian education system to produce centralized databases. So, fudging about academic details will not work anymore.
