6 THINGS ON YOUR LINKEDIN PROFILE THAT SHOULDN'T BE ON YOUR RESUME
1. ALL OF YOUR EXPERIENCE
A resume should be focused towards a particular role than your profile. Think of your LinkedIn profile as your “master resume,” and then pull the most relevant information from it to build a resume for each position you apply for.
Instead of including links to everything you’ve done, simply provide a link to your LinkedIn profile or online portfolio on your resume (or in your email signature).
Yes, you need to have references handy for moving forward in the hiring process, but it’s not necessary to take up space on your resume with phrases such as “References available upon request.”
While it’s great to let your networking connections see your interests on LinkedIn, a potential employer does not need to know that you enjoy playing basketball if you’re applying for a job in IT.
While it can be helpful for LinkedIn contacts to know when to send you a birthday wish, you do not need to include any personal information, such as your age or birthday, on your resume.
6. MARITAL STATUS
Your personal life is your personal life. Whether you’re married or single should not affect your ability to do the job, so don’t give employers more insight into your personal business than necessary.
