Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with and this is The Job Search Minute. When submitting your resume online, you often have two primarily choices for submission. You will either be providing an attachment or directly submitting into a form. When providing an attachment it is best to include both Microsoft Word format and text format. The Word format can be used for printing and the text format can be used for insertion into the applicant tracking system. When submitting a resume using an online form, using the text version of your resume. Copy and paste directly from a text editor into the form. Avoid copying from word processors, since formatting and special codes may not copy well into the online form. This will ensure that your resume is highly searchable and findable by the employer.
