Top Technology Tips for Resume Writing

Part of the Australian Resumes For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Modern job seekers need to know how to create an electronic resume that can be sent by email and 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, .doc, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, html)

  • Use simple, plain fonts

  • Avoid using graphics — unless you’re applying for a creative role — clip art or special characters

  • Scan your files regularly for viruses

  • Limit resume posting to a few job sites

  • Keep track of username and passwords when registering on employment sites

  • For advertised vacancies, put the job title and reference number in the subject line of the email
