Great Resumes Fast » Resume Writing Tips » Should I Add Additional Information to My Resume?

Yes! If you have a LinkedIn page or maintain an industry-related blog, by all means add those links to your resume. The more information you provide to employers regarding your professional life, the less work they’ll have to do in finding out for themselves.

And it is always a great idea to direct employers back to information about yourself that you have compiled. Twitter, a LinkedIn profile, and professional blog are good ways to cement your brand in the mind of the employer while providing them additional avenues to discover more information out about you as a potential candidate.

Also, don’t underestimate a Google profile and monitor your digital presence! Know how to get rid of digital dirt if you have any and make sure when you Google your name that the first few links that show up are really about you and are positive!

You might have seen me featured as a resume expert in publications like Forbes, Fast Company, and Fortune. And in 2020, I was honored to be named as a LinkedIn Top Voice of the year!
