Simply put, a letterhead is the top part of a formal document used to identify the sender, which makes a resume header an absolute must. Things a letterhead usually features include are your full name, job title, and personal details (professional email, phone number, LinkedIn profile).
It used to be a common practice to include your address, but that’s no longer the case, as most communication now takes place via email.
Please, note that a cover letter header will usually be slightly different.
