I’ve often brought up the idea that resumes shouldn’t have any data but work experience and education. Having a name on a resume, along with an address, may tempt people to have preconceived notions about a candidate.
Unsolicited resumes are another story altogether; resumes that are sent but not requested can add work to the HR department that can be unnecessary; however, others feel unsolicited resumes add to the potential pool of applicants.
What are your thoughts on these issues? I will post comments next Thursday from readers.
