The CV Leave it out
References do not need to be included. They can be taken up later
Salary details - this is your negotiation point, so leave discussion about
this to a much later stage.
Photographs can instantly create bias, so always avoid including
Health details, unless your health is good.
Reasons for leaving or early mistakes in your career. These will
not help you get on the short list.
Children's ages, as they can emphasise your age or a potential problem
with relocation because of schools.
