5 Things to Take off of Your Resume

The opinions expressed in this article are the writer’s own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus.

  1. Your address – no one is going to mail you anything, ever. If an employer wants to contact you they will email/call you
  2. Career objective – everyone has the same objective, takes up space
  3. High School education – not relevant!
  4. A photograph of you – bias is very much still relevant 
  5. Soft skills – these are skills that all potential employees are assumed to have, thus it should not be on your resume

Hi! My name is Abby Kirsch and I am a sophomore at Bentley University majoring in Information Design and Corporate Communication. Some of my hobbies are drawing, painting, exercising occasionally, and watching Grey's Anatomy. I wanted to join HerCampus as a way to pursue my writing interest as well as develop new skill sets that will be beneficial in the workforce. One fun fact about me is that my favorite animal is a lemur!
