What is the most important element on your resume?  Contact information.

If an employer cannot reach you because your phone number or email are incorrect, it will probably move on to the nest resume.  Take an extra minute to review your contact information.  Make sure it is correct and easy to read.  This is especially true of email addresses.  I recently had trouble sending email to a client because she used zero after a letter.  I assumed it was the letter O.  If need be, change the font or font size so it is easy for someone to read your email address.  After you check your phone number, test your voice mail or answering machine.  If an employer calls and finds that your message box is full or that you have not set up you message box, you might be losing an opportunity.

Finding a job is never easy.  Don’t make it even harder by making it hard for employers to reach you.  Check your contact information, and make sure that your voice mail works.
