7 Things To Never Put On A Resume In 2012

resume

One of the most challenging aspects of a job search is writing a compelling resume. First you have to look back on all of your experience and figure out how to condense it to one page. Then you have to make sure it's tailored to each job you're applying for, whether that means moving around the order of your work history, education and skills, or reworking your career summary.

No two resumes are alike because no two job seekers are alike. Yet there are certain items that should never appear on any resume, whether you're applying for a job in construction, education, health care or manufacturing. To make your life easier, we put together a list of seven items that no job seeker should ever put on a resume. Employers will thank you (hopefully by hiring you) if you don't waste their time with useless information. Do yourself a favor and leave these seven items off.

"your looks are irrelevant to your potential as an employee"- This opinion you gave is completely untrue. Im 21 and have worked successfully at multiple places and never had any problems with my resume. Posting a picture on a resume are beneficial to an employer to identify physical health as well as many other information that you can gather. I disagree with your #1 point (unless your picture would harm peoples opinion of you) although in few incidents pictures can be a legal issue but in no way are they worth backing up your number one point....

I know of a lot of job seekers out there so I thought I would share this and you can take it or leave it.

I agree with the picture bit, never put a picture makes your cv look unprofessional!

I think attaching your picture would only work if you were A) Interviewing with a man and B) You are a really hot chick
