The Name On Your Resume

Kent Nolen

It's okay to use the name you are commonly known by on your resume.

So, gone are the days when you have to say "Elizabeth Jones" – "Liz Jones" is just fine. If your potential employer is going to look into your background, they'll have you fill out paperwork that asks for your legal name. That's when, naturally, you'll provide  the name that appears on your birth certificate.

Go ahead. Be YOU on your resume.
