Contact Information

Keep it simple

We generally include:

  • Name

  • Primary (personal) phone number

  • Professional email address

  • City & State

Depending on your job search and resources, you may also want to include other professional websites such as:

  • Personal Website

  • LinkedIn

  • Twitter

  • YouTube

  • GitHub


We want to stress not every resume needs these supplemental links. We advise to only use these links when they enhance your resume or personal brand. Using too many of these links can crowd your resume and distract the reader.

When putting links on your resume, it could be helpful to put in a URL. From both a Word and PDF document, the user can click on the link. However, if the reader has received a scan or printout, the links will not work. We suggest using something like this to help them navigate to the page: linkedin/in/yourname
