Helping you make sense
of the evolving HR landscape. Working to Combat Resume TMI Syndrome

Posted on: April 12th, 2010 | Category: hiring process, Our Blog, Resumes

How many times have you looked over a resume and thought to yourself, “Oh, this applicant should not have included that”? How often does a case of too much information result in a job seeker being cut during the resume screening process?

The Work Buzz, a blog, recently posted “6 things you should probably remove from your resume”, and we think it’s pretty spot on.

In an age of FaceBook, Twitter and FourSquare, we’ve gotten used to broadcasting any and all information about ourselves. But when it comes to your résumé, it might be best to take a cue from German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe who coined the phrase, “Less is more.”

Do you have anything you’d like to add to this list? We’d love to get your thoughts on this topic.
