Availability printed right on a CV: Yay, or nay?

I'm tired of either the person I hand it to asking immediately and then scrawling it on in pen, or people I email responding asking for it and nothing else. But I've never seen or heard of a CV that explicitly says "I can work these days/seasons/years/epochs/whatever". Is it unprofessional or something to just indicate on the CV itself what days you don't already have filled by school or another job or whatever?

OP wtf! Don't put activities or interests. This thing screams "template". HR will stop giving a shit when they see how much words are in your resume. Find a way to condense all your content. Don't write a novel
>>
oh also, verdict on the actual order of chronological order?

I hear a lot of people say to put the most recent first, but it just looks so weird to me. Why would an employer ever read past the most recent job anyway? I'd figure they're more interested in your progression (is he stagnant? is he getting more or less responsibility over time? has he changed jobs more frequently now or before? Is he ambitious and jumps ship whenever there's a better offer, or does he just seem to get fired easily?), which makes more sense to display oldest first imo.

is your resume a copy of an earlier LinkedIn thread that was posted today?

you should write your own resume

So you've never actually raced before, but you're interested in being a champion?
>>
>>1694746
You're trying to tell a story here and I have no idea why you did two internships or what exactly you did at them.
Condense that crap and come up with better titles for the internships that are more descriptive. Way too much fluff.
>>
>>1694746
Op, if your education is incomplete, why put it ahead of internships? Speaking Mandarin should be in a separate skills section, and who the fuck cares that you run? Will running make you a better banker? No? Take it off of there.
>>
>>1695727
No. And honestly, I don't know where you've applied, but I've never asked availability during the interview process.

>>1695788
Depends on the job. I'm a manager over a BI team, and we do our own hiring (our recruiter just feeds us the names.)

If you're applying to my job, I want to see applicable experience first, and in order, most recent first. If you did 5 years of analytics, but your most recent job is a holdover working as a stock picker for Amazon, I don't want to see Amazon. I want to see your analytics.

Actually, shit, I'm totally revamping my CV so I have more questions:

>many unskilled jobs explicitly demand a high school diploma. should I include that I have one on my general purpose give-to-everyone CV?

>I dropped out of college because family strife reasons. It's been too long to say it's "in progress". How should I express my education level without making it sound like I'm a retarded nigger dropout who sits around smoking weed all day?

>like 90% of my actual decent work experience is from working in the reserve force/part-time military/nasty grills equivalent, being in IT/signals. Is this good to have or does it make me sound like even more of a retarded nigger dropout who sits around smoking weed all day?

>keeping with above, how can I fluff up my military job without resorting to stuff like "I shoot guns and play with flags and beam flashlights at people to transmit dirty words in morse!" because other than telling people how to install printers I don't really do much.

>How do you say "official party" without it sounding stupid? I've done a lot of catering and bartending and planning and procurement for parties hosted by actual clubs with actual budgets, but doing it has never been a permanent position.

>on achievements like "won a robotics competition at x university" or "maintained a high traffic server" that aren't untrue but do leave out that I was 8 or so at the time. Include?

>can/should a logo, QR, or other icon be included in the header just to initiate flow through the document and limit whitespace at the top of the page?

>is there any other contact info than number, email, and street address that should be included in a CV? like a linkedin or other social media.

>i'm a dead gay furry, should I kiss every physical copy with heavy lipstick on to show I'll gladly suck several dicks, preferably at once, for a job?

>>1695847
I intend on handing these out in person as well, to shops and the like. I am literally an unskilled worker.
>>
Since you said you're an unskilled worker, let me ask, what are you trying to do? Are you just wanting to keep at that level or move up?

>>1695858
>>many unskilled jobs explicitly demand a high school diploma. should I include that I have one on my general purpose give-to-everyone CV?
Yes. If it's a specific requirement for the position, you list it. I'd put it at the bottom, though.

>>I dropped out of college because family strife reasons. It's been too long to say it's "in progress". How should I express my education level without making it sound like I'm a retarded nigger dropout who sits around smoking weed all day?
Don't list it. If it doesn't add value to your resume, then it's not worth the ink.

>>like 90% of my actual decent work experience is from working in the reserve force/part-time military/nasty grills equivalent, being in IT/signals. Is this good to have or does it make me sound like even more of a retarded nigger dropout who sits around smoking weed all day?
What do you mean "Reserve/Guard *equivalent*"? Are you a Territorial, or a Primary Reservist (UK and Canada, respectively?) If so, yes. If not, please explain.

Take your specialty description, and then remove any jargon. Use civilian equivalent terms. If you're a sergeant, you would say so, but describe your position as "leading a team of X soldiers (or engineers, or communications specialists, or whatever) performing Y job."

>>How do you say "official party" without it sounding stupid? I've done a lot of catering and bartending and planning and procurement for parties hosted by actual clubs with actual budgets, but doing it has never been a permanent position.
If it's not applicable to the position, don't post it. If it is, then describe it with specific bullet points describing the responsibilities of the job. You can call it catering or whatever you want, as long as it's honest.

>>on achievements like "won a robotics competition at x university" or "maintained a high traffic server" that aren't untrue but do leave out that I was 8 or so at the time. Include?
Exclude

>>can/should a logo, QR, or other icon be included in the header just to initiate flow through the document and limit whitespace at the top of the page?
Does it add value? If yes, then add it. If not, then don't. Honestly, I'd say no in this case.

>>is there any other contact info than number, email, and street address that should be included in a CV? like a linkedin or other social media.
A linkedin address is generally acceptable now. Other social media, no.

>>i'm a dead gay furry, should I kiss every physical copy with heavy lipstick on to show I'll gladly suck several dicks, preferably at once, for a job?
Exclude

You can't actually include logos and such on your CV (copyright and patency issues).
And QR codes are generally taught to be a security risk to any respectable firm. Leave them out just as good practice.
>>
Your resume is good... I like the formatting especially.

I have a semi-related question: How hard is to lie on a resume for an entry level job?
>>
>>1695890
easy as fuck if its a low skilled working job
my friend lies all the time about getting A* in maths when he was 16 when in fact he failed it. Working at mcdonalds now kek.
>>
>>1695884
>You can't actually include logos and such on your CV (copyright and patency issues).
You can, as long as you own the logo, or have rights to it. Beyond that, copyright and trademark (not patents) to come into play but nobody cares. If you put a corporate logo on it someone's going to round-file your resume.

>>1695895
It's a data entry clerk job. It requires 1 year of experience and proficiency at Microsoft Office (lol).

Besides the Microsoft Office part, is data entry easy as fuck?

My family owns a small business, should I just list that as my 1 year of experience.
>>
>>1695902
yeah that's fine lol
>>
>>1695902
And yeah it's easy as fuck. Probably some basic SQL statements they'll tell you about in access or some bullshit.
>>
>>1695914
Thanks & good; I'm assuming anyone with a very basic knowledge of computer interface is able to do it.

>>1695864
I'd like to move up and respond to design wonk stuff I see on craigslist in the vain hopes of landing it (since why are they going to fucking craigslist if they don't expect to get some rookie?) but for the most part, these are going to shops and restaurants, handed out in person. and FWIW I would rather a lower than higher position in the service industry -- you don't make much more, but it's much more stressful.

>Don't list it. If it doesn't add value to your resume, then it's not worth the ink.
What if it's that I studied in a related field before leaving?

>Are you a Territorial, or a Primary Reservist
Primary Reservist. All the same training with none of the respect

>>1695877
>Take your specialty description, and then remove any jargon.
I wrote "Currently hold [nonsense french rank] in [official trade name], which primarily deals in handling message traffic and the operation of radio, satellite, and conventional networking equipment." among other "passed basic" and "did outreach stuff" and "trained some noobs" bullet points. Is that any good?

>You can call it catering or whatever you want, as long as it's honest.
t-that doesnt really answer the question of how to say "threw a rad party" without it sounding like I'm talking about house parties

>Does [a logo/icon/qr/whatever] add value?
I'd say so, just to make the document flow more nicely and not have so much eye-raping whitespace. Doubly so if I'm applying to entry level design field positions managing facebook accounts for local businesses or w/e

>>1695884
I didn't mean ripping an actual corporate logo like the nike swoosh or something, I meant the kind of small icon you'd slap on a business card you hand to chicks at bars. it could be as simple as a solid filled square

It's total shit. Get rid of those block graphics. Your resume isn't even worth reading on the paper it's printed on. You don't even include and job experience descriptions.

I'm working for an IT consulting firm, should I put the names of my clients in the resume?
>>
>>1698798
Are they notable companies? If so go ahead.
>>
>>1698802
Yes they are and I'm applying for one of them.
To be clear I would like to write on the resume the client name and a short summary of the projects that I did.
I'm scared that is too much private informations to make a good impression.
