Kent Johnson, branch manager of the Minneapolis office of Manpower, responded with this feedback:
"I've never heard of anyone looking up a potential candidate's address to assess their property value," says Johnson. "Could it happen? I suppose. I personally don't have enough time in the day to do that. I think the chances of that happening are miniscule."
"I always want to see an address on a resume. If people don't, I feel like they're hiding something. And frankly, knowing where a candidates lives helps make good decisions for all. In my business, I don't "assume" when it comes to addresses (i.e. commute) and talk with a candidate anyway. Maybe they're moving, maybe the commute is expected, etc. As as FYI, I have a job is Faribault, but am contacting candidates around the Twin Cities because maybe the job/compensation are such that it makes it worth the 45 mile drive."
There you have it - when it comes to resumes, add your address
