Carefully consider the CV information you write in your CV!
Consider these constructed examples
- You have just been appointed head of Coca Cola’s new beer division; or
- You been appointed to the group working on the launch of Apple’s new Windows 7 computer
just imagine which impact that would have if you just just added this new position to your curriculum vitae or profile before it was public information!
Maybe theoretical examples but there are many examples of people putting nonpublic information in their public CV or social network profile. Lately it was one of the top guy’s in HP that made this mistake. But you company might not the amongst the biggest companies in the world. But revealing non public information can harm every company if you make it public.
