Do not include reason for your job change:
—>No person will include the reason for the job change, If you do then stop doing this because the interpretation of this kind of things will vary from person to person and this may give negative impact on you. So, Don’t put the reason for job change just tell they if they ask in person.
Never mention your Salary details:
—>Never mention your salary details or CTC of your previous company, Every company will have their own salary structure and if you don’t fit to them they will reject you. Putting CTC in resume is like telling them that i prefer such kind of salary structure. They may also reject if you are above their budget, Give yourself a chance to negotiate.
Do not include family details:
—> This is the biggest blunder people do, We should never include family details in our resume. This shows that you have no control over. Company don’t want your personal family details and religion. So just focus on showcasing your expertise.
Do not include conclusion:
—>I have seen many people giving this conclusion statements like ” I declare that the details provided was true to best of my knowledge”. There is no need for these kind of things.
