2) How should I send my resume templates?

  • For resume templates, PDF is the standard format (if it is not mentioned in the job listing). You can save your resume templates in this format.
  • It is will look best if you remove the white border edge for printing & emailing. Follow these instructions in Microsoft Word for a borderless finish:
  • Go to Page Setup. Settings.
  • Under Page Attributes.  Format for Any Printer. Paper Size. Manage Custom Sizes.
  • Add new size. Name it: PDF borderless - 8.5 x 11 ; Non-Printable Area needs to say - User Defined. Change margins in boxes to 0.
  • Now you can save as borderless resume template PDF.

  • Double-click on your picture, opening a Format window.
