JobSeeker Resume Tip


JobSeeker Resume Tip: Format Matters
Most employers these days accept email or online applications to their job ads, but they don't always require the same format. Often, you'll be asked to upload a resume, send it as an email attachment, or paste it in the body of an email. Read each ad thoroughly for instructions as some employers can only accept certain formats like MS Word, and some do not open attachments. As always, remember to include a cover letter. You should always put this in the body of the email to make sure the employer sees it first. You've put a lot of thought into your application and it would be a shame for an employer to miss out because of a simple formatting issue.
