Remove this information from your resume and LinkedIn profile

People from all over the world send me their resumes to critique. Almost 95% of the resumes I see have this one bit of information in common… they include their home address on the resume’s letterhead.

What’s so wrong with that? Hiring managers, recruiters, HR professionals often will copy the address from your resume’s letterhead and perform a GOOGLE search. Google street view will provide them a map of where you live AND in many cases, an image of your home. These are people with biases, these are people making judgments. They do not need added material to judge you on.

Certainly, later in the process, when it’s time to fill out forms– absolutely provide your home address. But early in the process, no one needs to know where you live.

  1. Another challenge: you know all those heavily advertised, free realty sites running around out there? Some of them advertise pretty heavily on television, after all.

    Don’t make the mistake of thinking that HR people and recruiters don’t watch TV, and use that information to inform how they respond to salary demands.

  2. I teach to remove address for security reasons, with resumes all over the internet you don’t want your home address everywhere, we live in a very different world now. Clearly an employer just needs to know you are in the geographical market of the job they are recruiting for.
