Formatting Tips

Here are some tips to create a better-formatted resume:

-Do not use non-standard fonts. Most fonts cannot be perfectly matched between Word and HTML, which could possibly make your resume difficult to read. Recommended fonts are Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana, and Courier. Also use same font in the resume.

-Do not use spaces or tabs for formatting a table or aligning text. This could result in tables with uneven columns. Please use Word's alignment and indention features. If you have created a table using tabs, please use Word's table feature and turn off the borders.
Images will not be preserved in the HTML view of your resume. This goes for regular images as well as bullets. They will, however, be preserved in your Word document, so job posters will still be able to see them when they download your Word document.

-Do not surround your resume body with a frame or use columns in your resume, as this can cause problems with the formatting. Instead use a table for formatting.

-Do not use a series of underscores to represent a line break. Instead use the standard line break in Word.

-Do not use fancy table borders like double or dotted borders. This might not be formatted correctly. Instead use standard single line borders.
