Personal Secrets Revealed By Your Resume
Looking for a career change? Be careful what you put in your resume, research found that certain details might reveal a lot more than you think. Here are a few personal details you might be giving away.
1. Your age. If your resume includes the year you got a high school diploma, your employer knows your age to within a year or so.
2. Family information. If you have volunteer work experience with a school or Little League, that’s a pretty clear indication you have kids. Employers might see that as a problem. They’re not legally allowed to ask, but they’re allowed to figure it out.
3. When you can start. Everybody SAYS they can start right away. But if your resume shows an out-of-state address, most employers will assume it’s going to take time for you to move and settle down in their area.
4. Your work ethic. If your resume has typos and grammatical errors, anyone can see that you’re either lazy, not detail-oriented, or both.Share:
