As someone who has been through a lot of resumes (and I'm still accepting
new ones!), I prefer to receive them in Word format. This way, not only can
I get the resume information, I can get some idea of the person's Word
skills. It amazes me sometimes the somersaults some people go through to do
simple layout tasks in Word. Because we use Word extensively in what we do,
I need to know that the person I'm hiring can do their work efficiently.

If you want the recipients to let you know if they got your resume, just
ask. I generally don't, due to time constraints, but if someone takes the
time to ask, I'll respond. A phone call works well, too.

Good luck!
Luisa

Hello All-

I have some questions and need some advice about Resumes .

When sending a resume electronically (via email) do I send it as an
attachment, in the body, as a pdf, a word file, frame file, or all of the
above.

Do I save the attachments as Resume.doc or as My Name. doc?

Are there any pitfalls to avoid when sending a resume to a potential
employer?
For example, is parallel construction in a resume important? Should a resume
be one page only?

Any and all comments related to this are more than welcome.

Thanks Stark.

(Yes it's my real name...don't ask!)
