This is why you have someone else check it besides yourself. You need to proof read multiple times to make sure it has all the crucial information. I don't see how you could leave that off. I hear that nobody really looks at them anyway and they should have your contact info from your application. Still, it's your own fault for not paying attention to the crucial details.

FML is trying to drive the userbase away, that's the only explanation. Every single time I see a post without the YDI button, I die a little inside. To OP: you deserve it.

it's actually a bad idea to use a template, because they are easy to recognise from resumes that didn't use templates and a lot of times employers won't even look at templated resumes

Maybe if you're aiming for a design based job (and even then some companies may not care) but it being clear to read with proper spelling, relevant information and a decent cover letter is way more important than trying to do something wacky with the format.

Yea it definitely depends on the type of job. Design jobs should have unique, aesthetic resumes. Business-oriented jobs should be basic and to the point. Academic ones should be long with a lot of publications and presentations, etc.

No, no, this is good. At least you'll know that if anyone contacts you, they really want you, since they had to go through all that trouble of finding your contact information.
