Hints from Heloise: Send in your resumes electronically

Posted 3/7/23

Dear Heloise: Regarding the tips on resumes, specifically about printing it on high-quality paper — the reader left out an important tip. We who work in human resources don't want you sending in or handing us a piece of paper. Be prepared to email it instead so that it can be forwarded to others. That means save it as a PDF, since a Word document's format can come out funky and a PDF will make it look how it's supposed to. Have a few copies printed for when you go on an interview, but in most cases, the interviewer will have a copy of it right in front of them. — G.K., via email
