Resume Writing Advice – Personal Information

Personal Information

Your personal contact information is the most important component of your resume. Personal information consists of all the necessary information a prospective employer would need to contact you. Make sure to include your name, address, and telephone number (including area code), at a minimum and preferably an e-mail address. List your personal information as you would like it to appear at the top of your resume. If you would like to include your middle initial or middle name, then include this information following your first name into the first field.

Insider Tip: Try adding your name in ALL CAPS or increasing the font size. This will make your name stand out more and may be more memorable to a potential employer.

Consider including a Web site address, cellular phone number, pager number, or answering service number as an alternate means of being contacted. If you are currently employed and cannot be contacted at your current workplace, include a home or cellular number as your primary contact number instead. However, if you have a private telephone line with voicemail at your current workplace, then include your work number. Also, in certain instances your current employer will be aware that you are accepting telephone calls from prospective employers. For example, you may be involved in a merger or down-sizing activity where your employer provides outplacement and job search support.

Insider Tip: If you have professional credentials or certifications that are relevant to the position you are applying for or are required by your career, your resume should indicate this. For example, if you are a certified public accountant consider writing your name “Mark Anthony – C.P.A”. However, use your discretion when deciding whether or not to include this information on your resume, as it may be advantageous in some positions and not in others.

Lastly, if your resume is more than one page, do not forget to include your contact information on the second page.
