Many companies accept resumes only via the Internet and often a computer is scanning your resume – not a person.  Scanners look for clear, concise information.

Use these hints to increase your success:

  • Use simple fonts such as Times New Roman, Arial or Calibri.
  • Use bold words sparingly.
  • Do not underline, use italics or all capital letters.
  • Use clear, concise phrases – no sentences.
  • Repeat skills listed in the job description or job ad within your resume.  (Communication and writing skills, computer skills, etc.)
  • Include all pertinent jobs and education.
