CV submissions can be cumbersome especially for HR execs. These are pointers to avoid when writing your CV when applying for jobs:

CV submissions

Irrelevant Job experience

If it has nothing to do with the job you are applying for, it’s best to leave it out.

CV submissions

Date of Birth

Unless the job is age specific and you fall within the range.

Excess Text

Your interviewer should be able to pick key points in a glance.

Unnecessary obvious words

Unnecessary obvious words – There’s no need putting the word phone in front of your phone number, same applies to email. 

CV submissions

Fancy Fonts

Fancier fonts are harder to read and recruiters absorb less about you.

Finally, you must refrain from using unprofessional emails in your CV. Your email should be your first and last name. Instead of or use for your CV submissions.
