It is necessary to put an address on a resume to show employers that you’re local, are available for interviews or testing, and could begin immediately. You also can include if you’re already planning to relocate to the area because it shows a commitment that may impress the employer.
For example, you can list it as “John Smith, Philadelphia, PA, relocating to Boston, MA in January 2019.” In either scenario, it’s a good idea to include only your name and your city and state, as that can help protect you from identity theft. Use a traditional font like Times New Roman or Arial, center your name at the top of your resume in a larger font, with your address listed below it. Below your address, list your phone number and a professional email address. Think about using your full name rather than initials, as that may make it easier for a recruiter to keep track of your resume. You also may include your LinkedIn profile URL and your website address, especially if either contain links to a portfolio of your work, such as a blog.
