I read an interesting article on Glassdoor entitled, “5 Changes to Make to Your Resume NOW” in which some often overlooked points were resurfaced. It’s worth a read.
One point that was not mentioned and should be emphasized is how important it is to communicate your social media handles along with your contact information. Your social media standing is a direct reflection of your professional interests and network. and can demonstrate industry engagement.
This important engagement element should not be overlooked. After all, there are (literally) hundreds of studies showing that prospective employers are going to seek you out through social media. If this is a point of distinction for you, then you should showcase it, right?
If you’re actively promoting yourself professionally through a blog, Facebook page, or Twitter, you should definitely include a handle or link in the header of your resume. Don’t miss a chance to make this positive impression!
