1. Create a .pdf file of your #resume.
2. Label it effectively.
Before you do that, though, email your .doc or .txt, (or whatever file you have it in,) to yourself to see how the margins and tabs are all over the place on different receiving devices (phones, computers, iPads, etc.)
Then create the .pdf, email it to yourself, and you’ll see that everything is in a professional order. Isn’t that much easier to read?
EXAMPLE: See the difference these in these two resumes.
The incorrect resume needs these 4 corrections:
1. It is labeled ineffectively as “ActingResume 2015.doc”.
2. It is formatted so that it appears to the receiver in 2 pages.
3. The margins and tabs are off because it is still in a .doc file.
4. The information needs to be streamlined, corrected, and edited.
The corrected resume is on the right. Isn’t that easier to read and comprehend?
Also, LABEL your resume file this way: Margaret Reed_Resume_Feb. 2015.pdf. And for your headshot: Margaret Reed_Headshot_Feb. 2015.jpg. Think from the RECEIVER’S perspective, not how you might find the file on your personal computer.
