  1. Your address – no one is going to mail you anything, ever. If an employer wants to contact you they will email/call you
  2. Career objective – everyone has the same objective, takes up space
  3. High School education – not relevant!
  4. A photograph of you – bias is very much still relevant 
  5. Soft skills – these are skills that all potential employees are assumed to have, thus it should not be on your resume
