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.
