Less is more !
What not to put in your CV.
You should only include information that is relevant to getting you an interview. Keep your CV short and to the point. Here is a list that can be left out;-
- marital status
- numbers and ages of children
- details of your junior schools
- jobs that you did more than 10-15 years ago
- minute details of your more recent jobs(you can expand on these in the interview)
- lower level qualifications, eg Junior Certificate results or Leaving Certificate results especially if you have a degree or a lot of years in employment
- failed exams
- reasons for leaving previous jobs
- place of birth
- nationality, though you may want to include this if you are a foreign national and have a work permit
- age is not a prerequisite though many employers do like to know your age, though if you prefer you can leave this out
- details of your referees, these will be asked for later
- hobbies and interests(if they are as mundane as reading or watching)
