1. A photo of yourself
This might be a norm at some point of time in the future, but for now it is just distracting.

2. Your hobbies
Nobody cares. If it is not applicable to the job you are applying for, it is simply a waste of space as well as a waste of the company’s precious time.
3. Your ex boss’s name
Do not include your boss’s name on your resume until and unless you are okay with your future employer contacting your ex boss.
4. Irrelevant work experiences
Yes, you might have been the “king/queen of making milkshakes” at a milkshake parlor you worked for in the past. But until you are planning on reliving that title, it is time to cross it off your CV.
5. Your age
If you do not want to be classified against for a position on account of your age, it is time to eliminate your graduation date.
6. Personal pronouns
Do not type your resume in the first or third person. It is understandable that everything on your CV is about you and your experiences only.
7. Too much text
When you employ a 0.5-inch margin and an eight-point font to get everything to fit on just one page, this is a major fail.
If your employers want to speak to your references, they’ll ask you.
9. Social media URLs that are not related to the targeted position
Links to your prejudiced blogs or your Instagram account have no business on your CV.
10. Your school grades
Once you are out of school, your grades are not so relevant.
