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

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.https://www.youtube.com/embed/tH8E1guCtXIYour takeaway? Immediately go save your resume as something easy to find for a potential recruiter or employer. Some great examples:

  • Doe, Jane – Resume
  • Resume of Jim Doe
