Resume Tips

When posting your resume online, it's important to keep several things in mind:

--It is illegal under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) regulations for potential employers to inquire about a job candidate's age, marital status, religious beliefs, number of dependents, and other specific personal information.

To protect your information that is not relevant to the job duties the following information should be left off resumes and cover letters:
-High school graduation date
-Birth date
-Marital Status
-Number of dependents

It is generally accepted that putting your desired salary on your resume or cover letter is not a good idea.
It is possible the position you are apply for would pay you more than you are asking.
Displaying your desired salary might also reduce your negotiating ability if offered the position.
You might put the word Negotiable for your desired salary.

--Before applying for a job look for red flags that might identify the job as a scam:
Asking for upfront fees. If the position requires you to pay money before you start, or for trainging materials, then it's likely a scam.
Many work from home jobs require upfront fees, so researching the employer might give you more information.
Don't share your personal information (such as Social Security Number, date of birth, and your home address) unless you're sure the employer is legitimate.
Sharing your personal information with an unknown employer may result in your identity theft.
Beware of fake checks. If the job duties require you to cash checks and then send part of cashed money back - that's most likely a scam. does not guarantee legitimacy of any job postings made on does not guarantee legitimacy of any recruiters or employers who are trying to contact you through
