Online Resume FormatsWritten by Michelle Roebuck
Continued from page 1
Some people use a single web page to display their resume. You have your own personal website. You write your resume in HTML format, upload it into your own website and give URL address to employers so they can visit your web page and read it. This takes care of problem of email viruses. Make sure this is acceptable to employer.FILL-IN-THE-BLANK RESUME
This type of resume is used by online employment sites and employers’ websites. You just fill in blanks and information is sent electronically into a database. There’s not much room for creativity as with your standard mailed-in resumes. The way to get your resume noticed is to use keywords.
Keywords are nouns that describe your skills and achievements. “Product development“, “project coordinator“, “Excel“, “Powerpoint“ are all keywords. They describe what your skills are and what duties you performed on your previous or current job.
This last online resume format is one used most often by employers. The rule you should remember however, is if you don’t know which format to send your resume, go to employer’s website. If that doesn’t work, call them and ask.
