a different resume red flag
A different red flag: incorrect use of doc tools. If you are applying
for a tech-writing position and send me a URL (resume or samples), I'm going to inspect your HTML. If you send me a Word document and we use Word (not currently the case so I don't care as much), I'm going to inspect your use of formatting elements. If I see that you hacked the formatting in some way, or claimed HTML proficiency but used Word to produce your web page, or supplied a web page that only works in one browser, I'm much more likely to send your resume to the bit bucket instead of the interview pile.
You should never send a Word source file anyway, because different versions of Word sometimes render things differently and your nice
formatting might not come out that way on the other end. Send PDF
