I think it might be better to omit my exact address on my resume. Because I think sometimes companies scope out a potential employee candidates before and after hiring. So if they don't know where I live, then they can't SPY on me! Anyone do this? Or has anyone known that their companies spies on employees or potential hires?

It depends on what your applying for. I used to put my PO Box address if the resume was being sent to a job I had no compnay info for. If it was to a corp/organization (a known place with a person's attention) I would put my home address. Sometime I would even have to change my home address since some employers don't want people who are communting far.

Enough with the "everyone is spying on me" crap! Just check yourself into a mental institution already.

You're going to ahve to give them your address eventually. If I got an application or resume with no address on it, I'd shred it immediately--it's obviously from someone who is either hiding something or too stupid to figure out where they live.

It depends on who I'm applying too, if it's a blind add on the 'net I put my email addy and city, state but no street info.

No address would indicate to me that you are applying for a job when you live elsewhere ... another city/state and would need to relocate. I wouldn't do it.
