Contact Information

Your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address should always be at the top of your resume. If you are still in school while sending resumes, you may want to include both your permanent contact information and your current contact information. If you are home for the summer, or sending resumes once you have graduated, one address will suffice.


Resume Contact Info

If you have a LinkedIn account or portfolio website, feel free to add the URL to your contact information as well. Don't have a LinkedIn account? Now's the time to learn more and create one.

Personal Data

Personal data, such as race, sex, height, marital status, and photographs, should not be included on your resume. It is illegal for employers to request this information, and more importantly, such data has nothing to do with your skills and qualifications. Some people do provide this information on their resume when applying for positions, such as flight attendant, actor, or fashion model, where the information is pertinent.
