In what is sure to be an ongoing discussion here at LegalResumeReview, here are a few things that we see every day that you should remove from your legal resume:
- “References Available On Request”;
- A career objective section. We know your objective is to find a job EXACTLY like the one you are applying for, so why waste the reader’s time;
- A title. Just put your name on top, you don’t need to call out that it’s a resume;
- Photos; and
- Personal information (this includes your age, your marital status, information about your kids and any other tidbit that would make an employment attorney slap her forehead).
