Internet Services

Take advantage of a vital marketing tool that generates instant visibility to thousands of employers - the Internet. We recommend conversion of the MS Word document to ASCII for emailing and electronic distribution.

Conversion to ASCII "pure text" format

Résumés Plus can reformat your completed résumé in a professional, attractive online style. Yes, electronic distribution requires that a document be in a particular format — ASCII — a simple layout without tabs, bolding, underlining or other attributes.

If you "paste" an MS Word document into an online form, formatting will be lost and some characters will probably get carried over that don't translate well (e.g., bullets, tabs, tables).

We recommend that, unless specifically instructed otherwise, you use an ASCII document whenever you use the Internet in your career search. Examples of use of an ASCII document would be:
  • LinkedIn profiles
  • email
  • company web pages
  • job boards
  • résumé distribution services
  • web résumé generators
  • job posting services
  • online job applications

Web Résumé


Have your résumé posted on your own, private webpage under your name at www.resumespotlight.com, where it can be accessed only by people to whom you have given your personal URL. This webpage contains your résumé in three formats: MS Word, PDF and ASCII. How is this helpful to you in your job search process? Undoubtedly you will find yourself out and about talking with friends, neighbors, your dentist, your hairdresser or barber (you get the idea) and someone says, "Oh, give me your résumé; I know someone who could use your skills." Most likely, you will not have a résumé to hand to that person, but if your résumé is available online 24/7, you can give that person an easily remembered URL. The RésuméSpotlight listing is for six months, which can be renewed in 6-month increments. Submit an Inquiry Form to start this process.


Résumé distribution

There are many résumé-submission services available. Not all of them are careful with your résumé and personal data. We recommend using Résumé Machine to distribute your résumé to a wide, but targeted set of potential employers because of their good service and principled operation. Please click on the button below to see how Résumé Machine works.



Job search guide

If you could use help in conducting an online job search, we recommend Job-Hunt.org. This free job search guide provides links to over 15,000 of the best job sites, employers and job search resources. It also provides online job search advice and a monthly email newsletter containing tips and updates.

Testimonial

"The new résumé is great. I felt the top of the first page was particularly well formatted, immediately identifying who I am and emphasizing my technical and leadership abilities. The wording you used throughout had impact and the testimonials were a noteworthy addition. You obviously have some practice at this!"

Brian R. (medical devices operations manager)
