 Resume Formatting


Using the right resume formatting is also as important as the contents of your resume. The formatting of a resume can be interpreted as either the way the content of the resume is arranged or the approach to the resume’s organization according to how it should be presented to its recipient.

Both factors are very important in making a comprehensive resume.

Here are some tips on formatting your resume:

  • Avoid using tabs or spaces when creating spaces between the texts. Instead, use the alignment and indent features of the Microsoft Word.
  • Always use standard fonts. The readability of your resume is very important. Non-standard fonts may result to a funky look on your resume which may be unreadable to an employer. It is highly recommended to use standard fonts such as Arial, Verdana or Times New Roman.
  • Avoid the use of graphics or text as bullets. Instead, use the bullet formatting of the Microsoft Word. Using horizontal lines on a resume should also be regulated. These formatting elements may not be properly converted when the resume is transcribed to another format.
  • Refrain from using logos, graphics or images. These objects on your resume may cause formatting issues when converted to HTML.
  • Always use standard margins. This may positively affect the appearance of your resume
