Safeguard Your Contact Information On Resume

Safeguard Your Contact Information

If your resume isn’t getting any action, it might be time for a check-up. Sometimes a few simple little tweaks can make your resume work harder for you.

In my career its happened a lot time people applied for employment with incorrect contact information sometime number not in use, with wrong email iD’s and some time they were not available to talk on the number they mentioned.

People miss the chance of successful career because of these little mistakes.

Incorrect email address or telephone number

Be sure your contact information is accurate. If your resume has an incorrect area code or transposed telephone number, don’t count on getting a call. Most resume reviewers have a whole stack of resumes to go through and may not spend extra time trying to find your correct phone number.

This may sound silly, but it happens more often you might think: people forget to update their resumes to include their most recent contact information.

If you’ve moved or changed phone numbers, make sure that your phone number, address and e-mail information is up to date.

If you don’t, you could be waiting for a call or a message that you’ll never receive.

Also, make sure you have a professional sounding email address. If you don’t have create a simple email address like Neha Chauhan, using the address “”  “” “” (which you hilariously created before few years) is not a good idea.

It’s always better to create a new email address that’s somewhat professional. Even if you can’t get you can create something like – at least get something neutral sounding (like chauhanneha92 or nchauhan92).

Also, don’t get an address that’s too long and weird (like It’s too easy for a typo to happen when someone is emailing you – and it’ll drive people crazy.

If you do create an email account specifically for job searching, remember to check it frequently. You don’t want an email from a prospective employer to sit unattended in your inbox.

One more thing about email addresses – if you’re presently employed, don’t list your company email address on your resume unless your boss is aware of your impending departure.  If you’re caught job searching on company time, your current job might end sooner than you planned.

Contact information at the top of your resume should include your name, address, home telephone, and email address. If you have a personal website that is appropriate for potential employers to view, it is acceptable to list the URL in this section as well.

A cell phone number can be listed, but only if you’re prepared to have a conversation with a potential employer on your cell phone.
