What would you think if you were an MD at small, collegial boutique who was sent a resume, normal (and pretty strong) in all regards, but it had only a city and state for the address at the top next to the email and phone #? How would you react in that...situation?

    I don't want them googling it, for reasons I can't mention. But, it's not a huge deal if they do, so if it would be very bad to leave it off, i'll include it...so how bad is it?

    and yes, it's a male name (and I am a guy)

    i'm dying to know the reason why you would leave it out. this has to be good

  • ke18sb's picture

    One logical explanation could be that the person doesn't live in the city but doesn't want to be dinged for not living there, hence they don't have an address. Some people auto ding for non-local hires. I've used friends addresses before for jobs in other regions.

    Was there a rape at your address? Jesus. You can put the main address of your school if you prefer.

    Allright well that answers my question. but you'd never guess why I asked it so don't even try. just assume I'm homeless, ha.

  • saconsult3's picture

    I would just list the address of someone I know well in it's place if you're so worried about it. Close friend, family, whatever.

    I probably wouldn't notice if it was left out. But your reason seems weird, no one is going to google addresses

    I was also confused by this. Would have to guess that whoever is looking at this resume does not have enough leisure time to be googling the shit you put on there.

    that's not the point. if you have all your personal info on there, ppl you trust shouldn't be so frivolously spamming your shit around to ppl you don't know (or care to know) without your permission. if that happens, whatever - it's not a huge deal. but the attempts to contact (emails/calls/whatever) gets really intrusive and disrespectful at times.

    Do you have employers sending out your address and phone numbers to telemarketers often? what the fuck are you talking about?

    Your address goes on your resume, thats the standard, do it. Maybe they won't notice, but why risk it? That's why there are standards and common practices that we use for resumes, cover letters, etc. They probably won't be googling you, but if you are truly worried about them finding out about the meth lab your roommate was running in your basement, use a different address.

  • HFer_wannabe's picture

    We ever determine why the address is not being left on the resume? He sending out resumes from a jail? known whore house?

  • yeahright's picture

    It sounds like a homeless shelter or something of that sort.
