6 Reasons To List Your Address

A current trend is to omit addresses on resumes. Don’t make this mistake.

If you want to work remotely, it may seem like a minor point, but hiring managers want to know where you live. They want to know:

  1. The length of your commute (a shorter commute might give you an edge),

  2. How far you are from an airport,

  3. The time zone difference,

  4. If their company is registered with the state you live in,

  5. If it would be convenient for you to travel to company headquarters, or

  6. How close you are to their client base.

Put your location on your resume – not the location of your current employer. Social media profiles are often out of date, so they won’t rely on that information. If you’re concerned about security, simply list your city and state.
