Resume Q

Postby splittermcsplit88 » Wed Jan 23, 2013 12:15 pm

What do you guys name your resume file? I just saved mine as "Johnny Bravo's Resume.pdf," but I just want to be professional as this is one of the small minute things employers notice.

That's fine, but you're seriously overestimating how much employers are going to care. Most employers aren't going to notice unless you title it something stupid like "The Resume of Miami's Biggest Dickslanger.pdf."

Disagree, was just talking with a friend of mine who recruits for a V15 and he said the resume needs to be perfect from title and all. He said two spaces between your first name and last name could sink an application. Id recommend going with just your name to avoid possibly going to far and sinking your app
