ELECTRONIC RÉSUMÉ GUIDELINES–Job seekers now turn to email and online job databases to apply for open positions. Currently, almost 50 percent of mid-size employers and just about all large-size employers use on online job tracking systems. This results in more requests for online job applications and a need for applicants to create an scannable, electronic résumé. Here are tips to create a clear, readable electronic résumé:

  1. do not use boldface, italics, underlining, script, bullets, logos, symbols, or shading
  2. do not use artistic or decorative font
  3. do not use condensed typeface; white space separates letters and no space mashes them together
  4. do not use vertical lines, only horizontal lines
  5. do not use two column formats or designs
  6. begin each line at the left margin and do not justify the right margin
  7. use a laser printer, black ink, and résumé paper to achieve the sharpest possible image for effective scanning
