Use Long File Names for Resumes

quick-tipAfter you’ve created your Resume a nice trick to make it stand out with the Recruiter is to have a long, descriptive file name. This usually works for small businesses or companies that don’t use Resume scanning software. For example, Homer Simpson creates a Resume for a Project Manager position and names the file Homer Simpson – Project Manager – Resume.  This would make it easier for the recruiter to see your Resume when it’s in their My Documents folder. It’s similar to when it was recommended to use different colored paper or a FedEx overnight envelope to deliver your Resume. All it does is make you stand out; it’s just a little something extra.
