Here’s my pet peeve when receiving resumés, though you can surely see for yourself that it is not the only one. When a job candidate has an out-of-state (from where the job is) address on his resumé, why-oh-why would he not include something in the cover letter explaining that he is either a) living locally, but using, say, his parents’ house to get his mail; or b) planning to relocate soon. It’s so tedious to have to email a qualified candidate and ask if he or she is living in town.
