"Guidelines for Emailing Resumes"
Guidelines for Emailing Resumes or Posting on The Internet The following are versions of resumes that you should have ready when you begin your job search. You can create these versions all from the same document. They just are formatted for different uses. 1. Printable – created with bulleted lists and other highlights such as variable font sizes (three or less), italics, boldface, etc. This version is ready to print and mail or submit in person to those you are contacting or at the time of an interview. 2. Scannable – bulleted lists and capitalized text are okay but avoid boldface, italics, underlining script, graphics or shading. Computers read from left to right so it is best to left justify text and use nouns that identify skills and words that are used in the job description. 3. Plain Text – makes the resume ready to copy and paste into online forms or post in online resume databases. Plain text is also called ASCII copy. 4. E-Mail – also a plain text copy, but this one is formatted for the length-of-line restrictions in e-mail. It is also an ASCII copy. WARNING: When posting a resume on the Internet, safeguard your contact information by creating a Cyber-Safe Resume. See the Job Hunt.org website listed below.
