Writing A Great Resume, Part 2


TIP: Update your resume often. Be sure to add details of any training course, new interests and areas of responsibility.

Continue to style your resume the way we did it before. Use Bold font for section headings. You might also want to underline them.

TIP: For Speed-highlight the text to underline -- go to the top toolbar. You will see a button that looks like U (with a line under it). Click that button and it will underline your text.

For each job and educational establishment, make the font of the first line larger than the lines below it. Choose a bold font style or a bolder font.

Hightlight these lines -- go to the 'Format Menu' and select 'Tabs'. Type '2in' in the box as the tab stop position. Click 'ok'. The second half of these lines will now appear above each other. It might be neccessary to adjust the spacing to suit your text.

TIP: When you write a letter of application to accompany the resume, use the same fonts used in your resume. That way your letter and resume will compliment each other and have a professional appearance. Your potential employer may form the opinion that you pay attention to detail.

Highlight the lines that describes what each job entails, go to the 'Format Menu' -- choose 'Paragraph' -- type in the same measurement you used for the Tab Stop Position. Type it in the 'Indentation' section of the dialogue box, beside 'left'. Click 'ok'.

If you want to add page numbers, go to the 'View Menu'. Select 'Header And Footer'. Click in the 'Footer' section of your resume and in the header and footer dialogue box, click on 'Insert Auto Text', then 'Page'.

To see how your resume looks, click on the 'Print Preview' button. To increase the space below headings, press 'ESC', then highlight a heading and go to the 'Format Menu' and choose 'Paragraph'. In the 'Spacing' section, click on the uppermost arrow to the right of 'After'.

If you need to adjust the line spacing, highlight the lines to be adjusted. Go to the 'Format Menu' -- 'Paragraph' -- 'Line Spacing' section. Scroll through your options and choose the one you want. Click 'ok'. When you are happy with it, go to the 'File Menu'. Click on 'Save' -- "Print'.

After you have your resume the way you want it, I suggest you print it on a better-quality paper for the finished result.
