Trend: Less Contact Info on Resumes


CLT2011WhitePaper.jpg We used to advise as much contact information as possible on resumes. As the excerpt below points out, trimming this info streamlines the resume. Another reason for minimalist information: identity theft:
The emerging trend for contact information on a resume is to include a website address/URL, online profile links, city and state only (no street address), a single phone number (no second/third number, no fax number), and a single email address. Keep it clean and make it easy for a prospective employer to contact a candidate.
This post is part of our series of excerpts from the white paper, Findings of 2011 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers. The brainstorming day was held October 14, 2011, by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium, publishers of the white paper, and included the input of more than 250 career professionals from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
