Get these 10 things off your resumé

Alison Green writes the ask a manager blog as well as contributing to various media in the US on the vagaries of managers.

Some of the career-type advice is specific to the US, as one would expect, but I rather liked this summary of a talk she gave to U.S. News & World Report – the ten things that don’t belong on your resumé, including your salary history, your photo, an objective, and other such odoriferous things.

You can read it here together with the comments which come in with statements such as: “I don’t think you’re right about number x”.

And do, of course, remember that this is about the US of A. It’s about resumés not CVs (although some of the points will stand for both).
