Be Reachable

Put your contact info — name, email, mailing address, website, LinkedIn profile link — in the body of the résumé so it is searchable. And don’t put it in the header or footer, as information typed there can be missed by the ATS and may be invisible to search engines. If you’re uncomfortable listing your full mailing address, at least include your city and state, as some HR departments search for potential candidates by city.
