Your Private Information on a CV

Your CV is a detailed list of private information that could be used to steal your identity. 

All you need to state is your name, locality (the first part of your Post Code), email and telephone number. By using a mobile number and specific email address for your job search activity you are protecting yourself. 

Increasingly a Linkedin profile web address (URL) is included, it is personal preference as to whether you decide to include it, however, it does give the reader to find out more about your career including any professional recommendations you may have. If you do include it ensure that you have a personalised URL. (Access your LinkedIn profile settings to customise your Public Profile URL, you will find it on the right hand side after the large tick box headed Customize Your Public Profile)
