CV Writing Mistakes To Avoid For Job Application We have pulled some CVs that have been uploaded on platform and see some of mistake people made in Writing job CV.
The following below are CV Writing 5 Mistakes To Avoid For Job Application:-
1. “Curriculum Vitae” As a Title of Your CV
There is no need for titling your CV as CV. Why? Apart from being unnecessary, it simply doesn’t add anything interesting to your CV. In fact, most job seekers who begin their CVs this way, they tend to put it in a big font size which takes up space. So don’t use word Curriculum Vitae as your CV title.
2. Entire Education History
We had also shared that it is not important to include primary and secondary education levels. If you have graduated from a college or university, it is assumed that you have passed through all previous levels of education.
So, don’t take too much space listing every level of education you have gone through. Nursery School Certificate? This job seeker was supposed to have one line only for the Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management.

3. Bad Organization
How many pages should your CV be? Conventionally, your CV should not be longer than two pages. Yes, only two pages. That is not a lot of pages. So, the organization of your CV is very important.
One, it makes your CV readable, and second, it helps you fit everything into two pages. Think about the spacing. Think about the Font type and size you use. Shorten long sentences to short and concise sentences. Use bullet points.
4. Responsibilities & No Achievements
When a job is advertised, the advert will have a long list of what the position will execute. Repeating the list of similar responsibilities in your CV doesn’t say anything special. For all we know, you could have copied and pasted what was in the advert. Spend more time talking about your achievements instead of responsibilities. If you spend more time talking about your achievements, you will be able to show a recruiter that you are an asset.
What they want to see is your achievement related to your collaboration with affiliates, the number of marketing plans you came up with and their impacts on Sales and Leads, etc.
You don’t have to declare anything. You are not at the Customs Office. We will take that it is your CV if you have uploaded it. If you look at this example, you can see how you can end up wasting so much space, listing all the way you are declaring that your CV is true and accurate.
No! We are sharing this so you can all learn by example what is not supposed to be included in your CV. We hope that you will be able to have a strong CV that will attract the attention of those who will go through it. Also, we hope that you will be able to accentuate what is amazing about you so you can be called for an interview. Remember to keep your CV to not more than two pages.
