When it comes to your resume, clean and simple formatting is your best bet.

Here are our guidelines for formatting and sending your resume:

  • Keep your resume short, around 2-3 pages.
  • Use bullet points.
  • Have several people review your resume for any spelling or grammatical errors. Do not rely on spell check alone!
  • Use the same font throughout.
  • No photos or graphics. The only exception is for creative jobs, such as Graphic Design, where the resume is almost considered part of the portfolio.
  • Email your resume and rename the file to an appropriate name. For example, ‘Mary Smith Resume.’
  • Triple check your contact details are correct.
  • Apply using a professional email.
  • Accompany your resume with an attention-grabbing cover letter either as an attachment or in the email body.
