If your real name is "Jane Smith" - it can be safely assumed that you are a US-Citizen, and do not need to worry. If your name sounds "foreign" - but you are a US-Citizen -- then incorporate this into your Objecttive. Same is if you are an H1B visa holder. Example: Looking for work as a J2EE developer. USA Citizen. Example: Looking for work as a J2EE dveloper. Visa Status: H1B John Coxey (email@example.com)
Good question, do Canadian's need to list visa status even? For us we just need a TN-1 NAFTA visa which from what I understand is extremely easy to get (you just need an offer letter from the company and pay a $50 fee). Is this correct?
I know you were referring to the other Matt, but I would like to present my thoughts. I believe that you should not put anything on a resume that doesn't sell you to the person in charge of hiring. If you believe that your citizenship will help you land an interview, then put it on there. Otherwise, leave it off and bring it up at an appropriate point in the interview.
