Format Your Resume So It Can Be Read
On a Computer Screen
The snippet above is exactly how numerous resumes open up on my computer screen.
Pretty confusing to read, isn't it?
That's because it's been saved at 200%, and in the middle of the page.
A large portion of the resumes open up just like the one you see above.
I can scroll over and back to read it all, but that’s annoying.
You’ve been working on it at 150% or 200%, and when you completed it, saved it at that magnification.
After completing your resume, save it at 100%, and then email it to someone else, and see how it looks on her screen.
It’s best not to start your reader off annoyed, because they had to fiddle with your resume to make it readable.
