This is the highly debated topic on the internet about adding a photo in your resume. Countries like US or UK dont prefer to have photos on the resume. Photos reveal a lot about candidates like his caste, color, creed etc. Labor and anti-discrimination laws in these countries prevent employers from requesting a good deal of personal information. As a result, organizations rarely request a photo as part of a job application nor do they expect one, particularly for professional positions. I did not understand why they have such laws. Photos are generally available on the applicant social accounts too. What do you guys think about it? Let me know in comments. Anyway laws are laws. We need to abide by them.
Researching about companies and roles you are applying before also helps to figure out what skills recruiters are looking for in the candidate. Don’t forget to mention these specific keywords which they are looking for. Mention a short description of your work experience including these keywords. You should also mention the value added by you in the business (like % conversion increased). Recruiters would rather read about your accomplishments than your job description. For example, They know what a UX designer does, but what specifically did you do? Did you design and help launch an app? Did you design 50 wireframes? Did you build a design system? Did you drive utilisation up by 50 or 200%? What was your impact on the company (product, culture, bottom line)? Mentioning metrics also give a quantitative measure to judge your skills better. Also, write each work experience in a reverse chronological order. When presenting work history on a resume, the recruiter is more interested in what the candidate has done recently than in the distant past. It also presents the recruiter with the most recent work experience first and then allows them to read back in time to see how the candidate career has progressed.
