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.
Recruiters generally spend 2–3 minutes while going through your resume. You neither want them to waste their time on a long 2–3 page resume nor do you want irrelevant information in your resume. Tailor down your resume to a single page. You can include a short summary about you, your education, your work experience, projects, skills, interests or hobbies, awards (if any) and your social links to get to know more about you. Some of you may argue that if you have a portfolio then why do you need a resume? While portfolios are able to show the depth of your skills, Resumes help to know the breadth of your skills. A resume is a short crisp tailored version of your portfolio. First, Recruiters would want to know that the candidate can do the job and has necessary skill sets required for the job then he would want to know how the candidate approaches the problem, his passion, and values. Therefore, Resume screening is the first stage in the recruiting process.
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.
