Effective Formatting
by ResumeEdge.com - The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service

Unlike resumes being read by a human audience, scannable resumes must be easy to read by computer software.  Therefore, itís essential to stick to basics and avoid formatting headaches.

Your best choice is to:

  1. Be certain all type is flush left.
  2. Separate sections with white spaces, rather than dashes (--), dots (. . .), or tildes (~~~).
  3. Do not use tables.
  4. Do not use graphics.
  5. Put section headers in ALL CAPS.
