Photos on Resume

23 April 2013 Categories: Gerry's Corner

I must have missed a class somewhere or at some time. During the last month I have received 4 resumes with photos of the applicant on the resume. I have seen photos on resumes before but they usually came from sources outside of North America. These resumes came from applicants from different cities and different experiences and Educational backgrounds. I don’t know if this is a start of a new trend but I find it strange in this time of trying to protect our privacy and identities. The photos could also be used to discriminate.

        Maybe things are changing but nobody told me. Thought I’d share.
