There are basic rules for optimizing a resume for online/Internet use (formatted for scanning, e-mailing, or posting to Internet sites):

  • Digital resumes use simple, technologically friendly formatting.
  • Digital resumes emphasize keywords.
  • Plain text resumes should not exceed 65 characters per line.
  • E-mail a plain text resume to yourself and to a friend to test the way it transmits.
