How To Write Personal Details On Your Resume

This is part of the 'Parts A Resume' group of hubs.

In personal details include the following:
  • Name
  • Contact Number
  • Email Address - please create one which has your name in it in a professional manner.  e.g. firstname.lastname@gmail.com not luv182tonite@xyz.com
  • Marital Status (debatable, but a must for certain industries)
  • Postal Address
  • Date of Birth
Avoid the following:
  • Name(s) of your spouse/ children/ parents etc
  • Star Sign
  • Height or weight - unless specified - e.g. airline cabin crew resumes
  • Physical characteristics
  • Religion
  • Donor status
  • Vehicle owned - again, mention this only for job ads where it is asked for, e.g. sales

It is a good idea to put your name & contact details (number & email Id) on the top of the resume.
The rest can go as a footer or at the end of the resume.
