It's amazing what a well written resume and well presented can do for your job search. Before you send yours out, follow this checklist to ensure you are sending an excellent representation of himself.

1. Grammar, spelling, punctuation - Use the grammar and spelling check function, then print and read the document word for word. Spell checker does not know that means "manager" when in fact he wrote "manger."

2. Capitalization - Use a manual such as the Gregg Reference Manual if you do not know the rules of capitalization.

3. Punctuation - Check for correct use of commas and semicolons. Again, if you are unsure, refer to the Gregg Reference Manual.

4. Execution of sentences - Make sure you do not have run-ins that are difficult to read.

5. Consistency - You must be consistent with the use of their numbers (dates, money, numbers), plurals and abbreviations. For example, do not enter a date as 8 / 2004, and then list another date as 3/15/2004. Also, be aware of listing software consistently (abbreviation use). MS Word and Microsoft Outlook are correct, but not consistent.

6. Education section - When you have a title, list only the year he obtained his degree. When your list of dates, (ie: 9 / 1998 to 1 / 2002) many resume-scanning systems will not recognize that you obtained a degree, only attended college for a period of time.

7. Ampersands - The ampersand (&) do not belong to a resume. There are a few exceptions. An exception is the name of a company known (AT & T). Another exception is well-known industry terms (P & L).

8. Hyperlinks - All e-mail address and the web that the list should be disabled in your resume. To do this in MS Word, highlight the link, go to "Insert" drop down menu, scroll down and click "Link" and in the lower left-had side of this screen should not be a small button says "Remove link", when you find it, give it a little click and voila! Alternatively, you can highlight the link, click it and go to "remove link" to deactivate the link.
