Social Media Accounts

Your social media presence is an important element you must include in your resume. By including links to your Twitter account and blog, you can illustrate to employers your online influence and how you interact with other people in your industry.

When choosing social media accounts to include in your resume, be mindful of what you showcase. Ideally, you should only include links to accounts where you share professional content and interact with professionals online.

Your resume is often your first point of contact with a potential employer. In mere seconds, it must convey who you are and pique the interest of the hiring manager or else face being consigned to the recycling heap. General wisdom suggests that resumes be as concise as possible, but job seekers must be careful that they don't leave out important details. Eliminating critical information can be as damaging as a resume that just rambles on and on. In this slideshow, Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, has identified seven items your resume may be missing.
