Whether or not to include your street address details on your resume is a personal decision. In my view and experience I believe it is unwise to do so. There are a couple of reasons. Firstly, including your postal address is a left over from the days when people posted their job applications – pre email! This was done so the employer had somewhere to post the unsuccessful letter (something very few employers send via post or email these days). Secondly, given it serves no real purpose, it seems unwise to be sharing where you live with complete strangers. Particularly in an age of identify fraud. Certainly include your name, mobile and an email address – this is all the personal information that is required.
While on this subject of giving out unnecessary information, the same can be said for referees. This is private information that should only be provided to a prospective employer once you are into the recruitment process. It is acceptable to simple state ‘Referees will be provided upon request.’
More recently people have started to include their LinkedIn profile address on their resume. This again is an optional not an essential.
I welcome others views and experiences on the topic.
