Career Services Resume Name

How Do I List My Name?

  • Use your "go-by" name. That is, if everyone knows you by a nickname or your middle name, use it. For example, Katherine Elaine Johnson – if everyone calls you Kate – you can use KATE JOHNSON on the top of your resume, if everyone calls you Elaine – use ELAINE JOHNSON or K. ELAINE JOHNSON.
  • List any professional credentials (M.D., CPA, Ph.D.) that are appropriate for the job sought. If they are not related to the opportunity for which you are applying, do not include.
