What to Include in a Resume Contact Section

By

Resume Contact Section

Resume Contact Information Example

Copyright Alison Doyle
When you're writing a resume it's important to include all your contact information (your full name, address, phone, and email address) at the top of your resume.

Your Contact Information
Your Name
Your Address
Your City, State, Zip Code
Your Phone Number
Your Email Address
LinkedIn or Personal Website URL (if you have one)

Your name should stand out, so make it bold and a larger font than the rest of your contact information. Leave a space or put a horizontal line between the end of your contact section and the next section of your resume.

If you accept text messages, list that next to your phone number:
Phone Number (texts accepted)

Here's an example of a formatted resume contact section.
