Assistant Accountant Resume Sample

Updated on April 5, 2016

The must haves of assistant accountant resumes are things that have been discussed a million times. It is time to discuss the leave outs. These are things that must never be part of a resume. Here is a list:

• Social security number
• Resume preparation date (yes, some people put them in!)
• The term “references available on request”
• Your existing employer’s phone number

By omitting these from your resume, you are doing yourself a great favor as you are getting rid of unwanted information and concentrating on more important resume components.
