When applying for a job, presenting your curriculum vitae (CV) is usually the first thing that you do.

The CV plays a significant role in convincing the potential employer of your worth when it comes to the type of job he or she is offering.

Hence, one should be careful not to make the employer lose interest by in the first step of checking the CV.

To do that, here are three things to remove from your curriculum vitae.

1. Marital status

One should avoid listing down the state of their marital status plus the number of children because that does not define your ability to performing at work.

Whether married or not, your skills are what matters.

2. Your address

For some, the listing of addresses is a must but with others, it isn’t. Stating the name of your town and maybe the village should be enough.

One should avoid going the extra mile of listing the address unless the organisation needs it.

3. Your age and date of birth

Just like marital status, your age should not matter that much. One should avoid listing his or her age because your experience is what matters.

Age does not play a role when it comes to convincing an employer to offer you a job.
