What Other Contact Information do I Need?
How to deal with contact information on your resume…
- While job-seekers were once advised to include as much contact information as possible, the emerging trend for contact information on a resume is to include a Website address/URL, city and state only (no street address), a single phone number (no second/third number, no fax number), and a single email address, says Findings of 2011 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers, published by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium.
- Make sure your email address is professional, not one such as SexyBabe2301@aol.com. You may also want to include links to online profiles, such as on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. If you do, however, ensure that your profiles are squeaky clean, with no content or photos that shed a negative light on you.
- If you are in serious job-hunting mode and employers who call your phone are likely to get voicemail, make sure your message is professional.
