Netiquette And Resumes - Even Résumés Should Employ the Principle of Netiquette

Even Résumés Should Employ the Principle of Netiquette

Many job applicants do not equate sending a résumé with the need to use Netiquette. Keep in mind the need to balance items such as tone, fonts, and content with your email and other forms of electronic communication . These should be made complementary. Remember that a résumé should deliver upon all that is mentioned in the introductory email. If they are not balanced, the recipient might react negatively and lose the interest or enthusiasm that compelled him or her to read your email and open your résumé in the first place. Here are some basic Netiquette rules for the cohesion of your cover email and your résumé:

1.   Keep font styles and attributes (e.g., size, weight, etc.) identical.
2.   Have the same contact information.
3.   Don’t repeat words often.
4.   Show the same tone and enthusiasm throughout your communication.
Maintain the same formatting. Many recruiting managers will assume, even if subconsciously, that you have a positive attitude when they see consistency.
