Martial Status

Q. Would it be advisable to include my marital status and number of kids on my CV and if yes should I include this under my achievements section? - Henry


A. Marital status and family information was common information on a CV some years back but nowadays not as common due to changes in employment law and the general evolution of the CV. This information does not need to be on your CV and I would probably advise jobseekers to leave it out unless you feel it might weigh positively on your application. If you do decide to put this information on your CV you can include towards the end of your CV under a heading “Additional Information”.
