Should You Include a Picture on Your Resume or CV in 2021?
The Dos & Don'ts for the Education Section of Your Resume | LiveCareer
You probably already know that every element of your resume or CV will be scrutinized by recruiters. That makes the decision to include a photo of yourself, or not, an important one. Much like your decision on whether to submit a resume versus a CV depends on the country in which you applying to work, resume photo customs vary from country to country. Note: picture standards are the same for both documents.
But do they belong on your resume? URLs or hyperlinks: The first thing to consider when debating the addition of links to your resume is whether to use the URLs themselves or make them into hyperlinks. Hyperlinks definitely look better on the page but in some cases they defeat the purpose. For example, electronic resume readers used by big organizations generally convert everything to plain text, so your hyperlinks will be null and void by the time a hiring manager sees the resume. Also, some managers like to print out the resumes they receive electronically and view them on paper, which also cancels out the usefulness of a hyperlink.
