It's important to include all your contact information on your resume so employers can easily get in touch with you.

Include your full name, street address, city, state, and zip, home phone number, cell phone number, and email address.

Use a personal email address, not your work email address. If you don't have a personal email account, sign up for a free email account to use for job searching. Check the email account frequently, so you can respond to employer inquiries in a timely manner.

It's important to have voicemail or an answering machine so hiring managers can leave a message when you're not available. You don't want to miss any important calls. Be sure that your voicemail message is professional sounding.

If you have a phone you can text on, you can note (texts accepted) next to the number, so recruiters can easily get in touch with you.
