Want To Make Sure Your Resume' Gets Read?

These tips might help :).

Never attach it into an email unless you're specifically asked to do so. Instead, copy and paste it into your email message.

Most prospective employers and employment agencies are reluctant to download documents that might carry computer viruses.

Be sure to correct any typestyles that might be lost in the copy-and-paste process, such as boldfaced or underlined text. And make sure you limit each line to 72 characters or less. Most email programs wrap text around at 72 characters. That means any line longer gets cut off and dropped down to the next line - making your resume' look like it was hit by a chainsaw :).

Hope this helps. Happy job hunting!
