Resume doesn't look like it will fit within the text box provided
How your resume looks in the text box is not necessarily how it will look when an employer views it. Be sure to align the bullets, tabs and spacing to ensure a well-formatted view for the recruiters.
Using HTML when formatting your resume within the text box
Do not use HTML when submitting your resume. Your resume will be viewed by recruiters with widely varying screen dimensions, including Palm Pilots. Your resume might be converted into straight ASCII text and imported into a database or resume management software.
Targeting your job search
You can fine tune your job search by using specific keywords in the Keyword Search. If these keywords are in any part of a job, the search will return those jobs.
Example keywords: marketing, business administration
These words will result in job descriptions that include either marketing or business administration or both.
Example: Business Administration
These words together result in job descriptions that include both words in the order you type them in.
Example: Business Administration and marketing and entry level
These words result in job descriptions that include all of these words.
