Job-Seeker Resume Tutorial: Your Name on Resume

There’s Nothing Tricky About Listing my Name, is There?

How to deal with your name on your resume…

  • If everyone knows you by a middle name or nickname, provide that name in quotes or parentheses between your first name and last name: Karen “Kasey” Clark.
  • If your name is hard to pronounce, provide a phonetic pronunciation: Sandhya (pronounced Sun-thee-a) Aggarwaal.
  • List any professional credentials (M.D., CPA, Ph.D.) that are integral to the job.
