There are certain mistakes that many candidates make with their resumes and this can ruin their chances of getting to the next stage of the process. You should not have photographs of yourself on your resume, this is a very outdated approach, yet many candidates still do it. It is also not necessary to mention your date of birth or how many children you have and believe it or not, some candidates will give a short bio of their personal life. There is no harm in adding a section with some of your interests, but your resume should be professional.
