How to Label Your Resume File

Resume Tip: Double Check This Detail Before You Send

You want to get on the hiring manager's good side, right? There's one common but easily avoidable mistake that candidates make, and it's one that seriously annoys those in charge of sorting through applicants. It's all about the way you save your resume.

It might sound nitpicky, but hiring managers prefer when attached resumes are labeled with the applicant's name. Instead of saving and sending a file labeled "resume," give your resume a file name that has your name on it. This small move simplifies the process for hiring managers who are dealing with a slew of applications. It's not much effort for you to save your resume as "Jane Smith Resume," and it's a positive first step toward pleasing the person in charge of hiring.
