Avoid dating yourself on resume

At an interview, you are far more likely to be able to place a good spin on even an unpleasant termination. In fact, most employers don't even want to see "References Available on Request" anymore. You should prepare a separate reference sheet and have it ready for your interview.

The only personal information you should include on your resume is the address where you receive mail, phone and fax numbers and your email.

Then also ask yourself: Is this person draining you physically or emotionally?

It's assumed that you must have obtained a GED or high school diploma in order to progress on to college coursework.

Not only does this information clutter up a resume, it could eliminate you from consideration if deemed too high or too low for the position you're seeking. If the job posting asks you to provide an expected salary, include this information in your cover letter.

If you date your resume, it could give away the fact that you're really using a resume you've sent to hundreds of other employers.

Your resume may be screened by someone in human resources who has no idea what you are talking about.

Not only is this unnecessary information, it dates your resume.
