Job Seeker Resume Guidelines

Indeed strives to protect job seekers. Job seekers should only upload documents that are relevant to the job search and are free of unnecessary personally identifiable information (PII). Unnecessary PII is defined in this context as, but not limited to, information such as full date of birth, financial information such as bank account numbers, and government-issued identification numbers such as social insurance or driver’s licence numbers. Indeed may remove content in order to help protect a job seeker’s PII and professional reputation.
