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.
Its so different how the resume should look like depending on the country. Its a cultural thing. In countries like Germany, Japan, and China, its generally preferred with a professional photo. Its easier to remember the applicant. Therefore, I recommend researching the company well before sending your resumes. I prefer to generally remove the photo from the resume. Removing photos would also give me more real estate to show more information. Remember space utilisation is utmost crucial in a resume.
Interests/Hobbies add a unique trait to the personality of the individual. It surely adds a value to the profile of the candidate. Suppose you are a good singer, You can make party times even better. After all, Jobs are not only about work. If you could add a unique value to the team, You would always be preferred. Singing, Cooking, Instruments, Writing, etc., are unique traits and if you have them, you should definitely mention them. Avoid writing binge-watching Netflix, traveling, playing games or listening to music. Everybody does that and love them. Prefer to exclude these generic interests from your resume. You dont want to sound dumb.
