A quick follow-up to the post “The ideal CV of a software professional” to answer a question I’m asked surprisingly often in various forms:
I’m 28 years old. Should I include my GCSE results in my CV?
My first reaction as a hiring manager is no, don’t bother. What you did at school ten years ago is insignificant compared to what you’ve done since then.
However – a lot of people with experience do include their GCSE results in their CV, and there is probably a class of manager who wants to see them.
I would only say it’s unlikely you will be hired on the strength of your GSCE results.
