This is a no-no.

Do not put personal information on your resume.

That is what the interview is for.

And for gosh sakes! Do NOT ever enclose a photograph of yourself!

Don't laugh, this one guy sent in a resume, listing his likes and dislikes,
and all of his hobbies; complete with a photograph of him sitting at a desk
and computer.

My guess is that somebody who really hated this guy "helped" him put his
resume together.

Gimme a break - what did that prove?!

And unless you are looking for a job as a porno star, no pink or blue
scented paper!
