Now We're Running Off to Change Our E-mail Addresses

Head on over to Bitesize Bio to get some tips from Travis Medley on how to make your résumé look good. First, ensure that your contact information is professional – "[email protected] would not qualify as professional," he notes – and that the header you choose is simple and appears on all pages, in case they become separated. Then list your experience and make it easy to read. Two "don'ts" that Medley mentions are: "Do not list 'References upon request' … because we all know they are" and "do not use graphics or pictures. A resume file size that is too big stands out in a bad way."
