These are the things you should never put on your CV according to experts

Once a company puts out a job vacancy, their email boxes immediately get swamped with loads of Curriculum vitae (CV) or resumes.

A chat with the Human Resources team for Pulse.ng revealed that the hiring managers get an average of 50 per position they post. These continue to come even after the position is filled.

As a result of the huge amount of CVs or resumes, the HR team has just a few seconds before deciding to either delete or keep them. This is why it is important to avoid certain red flags.

These were all revealed during a recent workshop hosted by Paystack at the ongoing Social Media Week in Lagos state.

The session - ’Pimp My CV! How To Make Your Resume Standout’ - offered a major insight into the mind of an employer and gave CV structuring tips.

Here are five unnecessary things you should never put on your CV according to the Paystack speakers, Kharis IzevbizuaAdebola Adeola and I’m Ballotech .

Primary/ Secondary Education

For Izevbizua, the Product Specialist at the tech company, including details of your primary and secondary education is a waste of time.

According to her, this is a space filler that irritates the hiring manager, adding that this will most likely cause them to stop reading and immediately delete your CV.

The only time you should consider putting this on your CV is when you are applying for an internship.

Irrelevant hobbies and interests

This is another no-no for Izevbizua. Unless the position requires it, there is no need telling your prospective employer how much you love dancing or singing.

References

Adding the numbers or email addresses is a waste of space and a waste of the company’s time according to Paystack’s Product Specialist.

She recommends only offering this particular information when asked.

Personal stuff

Once upon a time, it was totally okay to include your date of birth or age, marital status and religious preference.

Now, Adeola strongly warns against putting these on your CV or resume. His reason is that this is now considered as discriminatory.

His advice is to simply avoid it except it is a specific job for a specified age. For instance, if a company needs an intern between the ages of 17–25.

Your picture

According to the guy in charge of Paystack’s Projects, adding your picture is so not necessary.

Admitting that he was once guilty of this particular CV crime, Adeola notes that is a space filler that should be forgone.

‘Being handsome or pretty does not mean you have what it takes to do the job so why to add your picture’, he notes.

There you have it. Avoid these five things and you will definitely land your dream job.

unn produces nigeria’s first electric car UNN produces Nigeria’s first electric car university of nigeria nsukka unn 1024x575

Mr Jelani Aliyu, the Director-General of National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC) has commended the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) for being the first institution to produce electric car in the country.

Aliyu made the commendation in Nsukka on Monday during the unveiling of a five-seater Electric Car, named ‘Lion Ozumba 551′, produced by the Faculty of Engineering in the university, NAN reports.

He urged other universities in the country to emulate UNN in giving serious attention to issues concerning innovations and technology in order to move the country to the next level.

He said: “NADDC on Feb. 6, invited UNN, University of Lagos, Usman Dan Fodio University and Metrological Institute and urged them to prepare a paper design on how to produce electric car in the country.

“The council is happy that UNN is the first to prepare a paper design and produced electrical car that has been unveiled and test-run today in the university.

“We urge other universities and higher institutions in the country to emulate innovation and technology spirit of UNN.”

The NADDC boss, who was represented by Mr David Oyetunji, Director Finance and Account in the council, hoped that the growth in automobile industry in the country would help to create more employments and save the nation’s foreign reserves spent in importing cars into the country.

“NADDC commends UNN, which recently produced the first gasification plant that used organic waste to generate electricity and today the same university is unveiling first electric-built car in the country,’’ Aliyu said.

In a remark, Prof. Charles Igwe, the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the university, who was visibly excited, said his administration would continue to give innovation and technology the highest attention in order to move the university to the next level.

Igwe expressed appreciation to the immediate past VC of UNN, Prof. Benjamin Ozumba, who, he said, laid the foundation for innovation and technology in the institution.

“I feel happy that I inherited strong institution from Ozumba and I promised I will consolidate on his numerous achievements.

“I commend the Engineering Faculty for making the university proud and naming the car after Ozumba, who ignited the fire of innovation and technology in the university.

“I also commend NADDC for its encouragement as well as giving UNN a chance to show its potential,” Igwe said.
