Electronic Resume

Electronic resume formats differ from the other formats in terms of the file type of your resume. Essentially, this format aims to prepare your resume as a softcopy for electronic storage, distribution, and tracking.

Nowadays, online application is becoming more popular, so having this type of resume format allows you to reach many employers using the internet.

Basically, this format suggests that you limit the formatting used in your resume. This means that you have to omit tables, fancy fonts, and other formatting schemes that you use in order to present a perfect resume. This also includes italicized texts.

Remember that employers may use different databases that using such formatting tools may destroy the content of your resume. On the other hand, you may use basic formatting that helps organize your resume.

This includes spacing in between major sections and entries and indentions on the details of each section. You may also use the bold tool in order to highlight your positions in your work history.

Take note that this format does not require any other resume formats, such as chronological, functional, or professional. It only requires you to select an appropriate file type that counts for the different possible databases.
