Well, many of are looking for jobs, or to move on up these days, and Yahoo! Shine came up with a list of five worst things to include on your resume they might blow your chances of getting a job. Here they are in no particular order:

An objective or mission statement. The company wants someone to meet their goals, not try and figure out how they can meet yours

Personal information. This isn’t Facebook. No need to put your marital status, sexual preference, number of kids, religion, or political affiliation on your resume.

Salary requirements. Talk about money later in the process

Unrelated experience or activities. Jobs in unrelated fields and your hobbies are a waste of space.

Your weaknesses. Focus on your strengths, and leave the trick-questions for the interview — in person, you can provide a positive spin.
