A friend is a person who will  always be there

to lean on and give their shoulder to cry on.

True friends will tell you who you are.

Friends that aren’t will only flatter you.

What Not to Include in Your Curriculum Vitae

It’s fairly simple to acquire information about what to include in your CV. Generally speaking, the basic requirements of a resume are almost common knowledge. For instance your employment history, education information and qualifications should always be included in your CV. While this may be common knowledge, there are several pieces of information that should not appear in your resume that will stand out in a negative way to an employer. The following pieces of information are some examples of what not to include in your resume. For more help, brush up on what to avoid in your cover letter, as well.

Why You Disliked Your Last Boss/Co-Workers
While you may think differently, your potential employer doesn’t really care about your personal opinions towards those that you’ve worked with in the past. In fact, by including this information you are actually representing yourself in a negative manner. Instead of focusing on your previous boss or co-worker’s flaws, try to demonstrate to your potential employer that you are adaptable and can work with anyone.

Personal Information
Your religious beliefs, political opinions, marital status, hobbies, and physical attributes should absolutely be omitted from your resume. Information of this sort is irrelevant and can actually be controversial. Moreover, if your religious beliefs or political opinions don’t coincide with your potential employer’s then you may be less likely to be considered for the job. Hobbies can portray you as an active person, but an employer doesn’t want to prod too deep into your personal life when you’re applying for a job.

Irrelevant Work Experience
As I stated before, your employment history should always be clearly stated in your resume. However, I suggest refraining from including irrelevant work experience. You may have accrued some serious hours dog-sitting for your neighbor, but that won’t impress your potential employer when applying for your next desk-job. In essence, make sure that all of your work experience listed in your resume is either in the field that you are applying for or helped develop the skills necessary for the job that you’re applying for.

False Information
It’s becoming more common for companies to run background checks during the hiring process. This could easily expose any false information that you have included in your resume. If a potential employer realizes you have included false information in your resume they will no longer consider you a viable candidate for the job. Even if your false information isn’t discovered in the hiring process, your lack of skills or experience that you lied about will be quickly unveiled through your performance.

References
Many job seekers believe that references should be included in a resume. On the contrary, I believe that references are merely a waste of valuable space on your resume. If your employer truly wants references then they will ask you for them. Don’t forget to have your references’ contact information throughout the hiring process and make sure you inform them that they may be contacted.

Poor Grammar
Your grammar truly can tell an employer a lot about you. Sloppy grammar mistakes will convince an employer that you’re uneducated, careless, and possibly lazy. Make sure you thoroughly review your resume for grammar errors and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Your Photograph
Employers are legally obligated to not consider your picture when evaluating whether or not to interview you. Therefore, your resume may even be discarded if you include your picture because employers will try their best to follow the Equal Opportunity Employer legislation.

Keep all of these things in mind next time you draft up or edit your resume.

What To Avoid In Your Cover Letter

cover-letter-example1-300x300

So you’re ready to start applying to jobs. You’ve updated your resume, spread the word to those that you know that you are on the hunt and bookmarked job search websites. Before taking the plunge and applying to any job, take a second and consider your cover letter. Most of the time, the cover letter is the first thing a prospective employer will see and it can make or break you. A well-written, concise, engaging cover letter will entice an employer to check out your application. A poorly written, unprofessional cover letter will most likely have them brushing you off without a second glance. Here’s a list of what to avoid in your cover letter.

Not writing enough. Or writing too much.

Cover letters are usually meant as an opener for your accomplishments and qualifications. You will want to include why you are a good fit for the position and what makes you think you will succeed with this specific company. Seeing as hiring mangers are very busy people, they will most likely not want to read a very long cover letter, so try to keep it to 2-3 paragraphs maximum.

Failing to personalize.
In the day of Google and the internet, finding out the name of a company’s hiring manager is easier than ever. Starting off with, “To whom it may concern” or “Dear Sir/Madam” is impersonal and you never know if the person you are addressing is male of female. If you cannot find the recruiter’s information, use a gender-neutral greeting like “Dear Hiring Manager”.

Writing the same cover letter for all employers.
This may be one of the more important things in terms of what to avoid in a cover letter. It is true that sending the same cover letter to every employer will save you time, but it only takes writing the wrong job title or company name once, for an employer to toss your application in the trash. Try to customize each cover letter specifically for each company. It will show the hiring manager that you’ve made an effort to learn more about company and their mission.

Including personal information.
Personal information such as age, marital status, age, religion should not only be kept out of your resume, but your cover letter as well. It has no place in either unless you feel this information pertains to the position you are applying to.

Not proofreading.
Having too many typos or spelling/grammatical errors will definitely raise a red flag for the employer. Even the most qualified of candidates can be pushed aside for these types of mistakes. It’s easy to overlook errors here and there, especially when sending out multiple cover letters at the same time. In these cases, make sure to have someone on hand who can help you edit and look over your work.

Dreams Come True

Human beings spend a great deal of time of focusing on dreams and goals of which they get so much joy, praise and self-fulfillment upon achievement. Individual achievements start in the mind before they manifest themselves in our lives. Our dreams are bi-products of our thoughts, and the bigger we think, the bigger we get and vice versa. Great thoughts propel us to yearn for much greater things in our lives.

Many people desire to make their dreams come true but are not ready to start the process of changing themselves. Just as a house is built one brick at a time, a book read one page at a time and mountains climbed one step at time, so is the achievement of goals. It is these small successes that prepare one to handle even bigger and greater challenges.

Just as faith is dead without action, so is a dream without action. It is about progress not perfection!
