I always put a phone number on my resume so a company can contact me for an interview, but what if you have more than one phone number?  Should you list your cell phone and home phone number?  What about your email address?  If I put all this on a resume, is this too much?  What does everyone think?

I think you should put both your cell phone number and home phone number along with your email address on your resume.  Some people feel more comfortable sending a quick email to candidates looking for work while others will call you on the phone. It's all a matter of preference.

I agree with Teddy. Contact info doesn't really take up much space so I would recommend you put on all you details. After all do you want to risk them calling you at home, as that's the only number you've given, only for you to be out and they neglect to call back? Stick it all on there I say!

Definitely go ahead and add additional contact information if you have it. Different people are comfortable using different methods of contact, so offering up your email address gives them yet another way to reach out to you if they have questions or want to talk to you.  Do try to have a professional email address name for this purpose, though, and make sure it's something you check frequently.

It's true about the professional email address for this purpose.

I wonder if people consider that?

I used to have a friend who's email address was iamahippo@......

I don't know what a recruiter would think of that? I guess some may find it funny and some might put the CV in the bin if they have dozens to look over for one particular position.

It's funny this is something I haven't thought of before. My email address is half way between funny and professional but have never considered how it would look.

That said I used it when applying for my current job so it can't be that important.
