***end of CV**
- Avoid the temptation of adding more than 3 Referees as that raises alert than you are incompetent. Remember, one who has knowledge does not try too hard to showcase that they have knowledge.
- DO NOT add less than 3 referees, it shows you are not a people’s person. Communication is important in any profession, and without having that skill, you wont get any job.
- Don’t add relatives or friends on the list
- Add at least 1 previous employer if you have experience.
- Add at least 1 academic referee, it may be your research supervisor or simply your previous lecturer
PERSONAL INFORMATION TIPS
- Nobody wants to know your marital status, keep that to yourself
- Information relating to religion is important only when applying to faith based organisation
- Where you come from is irrelevant unless of course you were told before hand to prove that information
- Unless you are applying for a sales jobs or the employer explicitly requested it, your age should not be disclosed in your CV
- Dont list the units taught in a course, it only makes the CV difficult to read and bulky.
Thats all for now, Please comment your testimonies, all the best
