Resume Tips: Title

Did you know that when you send your resume to an employer or job board they can see the title of the file? Make sure when you send in your resume, you title it correctly. Avoid using titles such as “resume #1” or “resume for (insert company)”. Instead you want to put your name in the title. Try “ (First Name) (Last Name) Resume” as your title. That way, the employer will be able to identify which resume is yours in a sea of resumes. Saving your resume as a PDF is also a helpful tip to make sure the formatting does not get changed when opened a program other than the one you used to create it.
