What’s in a (File) Name? A Lot When It Comes to Your Resume


What’s in a (File) Name? A Lot When It Comes to Your Resume

Franklin Buchanan |

As we’ve written about before, so many simple and small things can make all the difference in your job search. One example is the file name you use to save your resume (and any related application documents).

In the video below, you’ll hear me talk about why your resume’s file name is so important when job hunting, especially when you’re working with a recruiter. takeaway? Immediately go save your resume as something easy to find for a potential recruiter or employer. Some great examples:

  • John Doe Resume
  • Doe, Jane – Resume
  • Resume of Jim Doe

If you’re looking for an expert opinion on your resume, we offer an affordable resume review service and, if it turns out you need a re-write, we’ll credit the amount you paid for the resume review toward the costs of a new resume.
