Good News: The New Privacy Guidelines for Your Resume Projects Are in Place
You have probably noticed a large amount of privacy notice update emails you received over the last couple of weeks. This is due to an extensive new data protection law by the European Union which came into effective today, May 25th, 2018.
Data and confidentiality is obviously a very sensitive topic when it comes to your executive career and your career marketing documents.
In your resume, bio and cover letter, you are pretty much “forced” to reveal a full name, a phone number and an email address at a minimum.
And who knows where this personal data of yours ends-up once you upload your resume to job boards or on global company websites that may be operating data centers and services across the globe?
So while the new privacy law seems like an administrative monster, it is certainly an initiative in the interest of all job seekers whether actively or not-actively looking.
