    Capitalization

    When writing a resume, should one capitalize the following headings?

    Date of birth: xx.zz.vv
    Marital status: single

    In other words, would this be better?

    Date of Birth:
    Marital Status: Single

    Thanks!

    I have no opinion on this. In the US this data never appears on a resume and it is illegal for a prospective employer to ask.

    In other countries it's not. And I have no problem providing such information. In fact, I think employers are entitled to it.

    But none of that has anything to do with my question.

    Re: Capitalization

    You can please yourself, Jasmin.

    Just make sure you're consistent throughout the document.

    My preference:
    Date of birth: xx.zz.vv
    Marital status: single
