Other resume don’ts to leave off

Items which could cause controversy
Avoid listing political affiliation, controversial employers or activities, or religious beliefs. Follow this rule unless you are applying for a political, activist, or religious job.

Personal Information
Listing your age, height, weight, race, ethnicity, or marital status is not necessary. It may provide open invitations for discrimination.

Personal References
Remove personal references from your resume. Use professional references only.

Salary Requirements
Do not mention your salary desire or wage history.

Check your resume several times for accuracy, consistency, correct use of grammar, and spelling. Stick with a single verb tense.
You and your closest friends/spouse should proofread your resume ON PAPER, not on the screen, to make sure it is error-free.
