Get your CV noticed #4
Posted on 24th November 2020 at 15:31
The only job a CV has is to get you an interview, but how can you help yourself be successful in your perfect role with the hundreds of applications that are being seen at the moment?
What simple tricks can you use to make sure that your CV stands out from the crowd?
Tip number 4
Remove all personal information that people can make a judgement on. This includes information around your date of birth, photos and family details.
Your age, whether you are married and have children and what you look like do not affect your ability to do the job for which you have applied. We all have biases - some of them positive but a lot of them are negative. This information shouldn't be present as it allows the person sifting CVs to judge you against their biases. Although there are laws in place to protect you against discrimination think whether any of the information that you are presenting could allow people to judge you on something that isn't relevant for the role.
Tip: Remove all personal information from your CV.
