In writing a resume, DO NOT INCLUDE:
In the past, it was popular to state an objective. More recently, however, experts agree that stating an objective will narrow your options. Your true objective is to get the job! Write a Summary statement instead.
It is assumed that you will have a prepared reference list available. Save your reference list for the interview and provide it only when requested.
Federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against age, race, sex, marital status, religion, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation. An employer, aware of these legal restrictions, may be reluctant to interview a candidate who has included such information on his or her resume. Also, never include a photograph of yourself. You should only include personal information if the information will enhance your credentials for the job you are applying for.
if you are asked to include this information when applying for a specific job, add it to your cover letter.
