This week’s blog post is all about how to use your resume successfully.
Today we will talk about the “email resume” and what format should be used. Since most employers request your resume to be emailed with a cover letter, it is important to use the correct format. Instead of attaching your resume, use the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Exchange) format in the body of your email so it is easy to read and understand.
It is easy to create an ASCII version of your resume. Once you have your professional resume created, you can save as a text only document. Open the text document and clean up any extra white space or add white space where necessary.
Copy the text format into the body of your email and catch a potential employer’s attention.
