What are the different types of electronic resumes? What are the differences between an e−mail resume, a scannable resume, and a web resume? How do I know which resume format to use? How do I format my electronic resume to ensure that the recipient can read it?
By far, you'll find that the most requested format for your traditional resume is MS Word· If you comply with the request, be aware that your formatting may be incompatible with the recipient's system· While usually still readable, fonts and bullet sizes and styles may be different from what you intended· These problems can be minimized, although not always eliminated, by embedding the fonts into the document· This is a simple process, and the MS Word help files will guide you through it· You should also take care, while writing and designing your resume, to use design elements that are default and standard on most systems· For example, it is not wise to use a fancy, custom font on your resume that you know will be emailed· Default fonts such as Garamond, Helvetica, Book Antiqua, or Verdana are better choices·
