10 Top Technology Tips for Resume Writing
Today's job seekers need to know how to create a resume that can be sent by email and that can be easily opened by employers and recruiters:
Fill your resume with industry-specific keywords, so you don’t get overlooked in company databases.
Stick to file size limits.
Send your resume in the requested file format. For example, in Word. Note that some companies may prefer PDF or another format. When in doubt, always ask.
Use simple, plain fonts.
Avoid using graphics, photos, clip art or special characters — unless you’re applying for a creative role.
Scan your files regularly for viruses.
Limit resume posting to a few job sites to help you track your job hunting activity and to avoid applying for the same job more than once.
Keep track of the user names and passwords you use when registering on employment sites.
For advertised vacancies, put the job title and reference number in the subject line of the email.
Ensure the employment details you provide on your resume are consistent with those that can be found on your LinkedIn profile.
