Resume Subtleties
Filed under: Public Relations docs

Some tips I picked up on creating our PR
documents might come in handy for us.

-  Avoid courier font (huh!  I have recommended
this font based on input from a recruiter five
years ago.  But I learned something.  Courier
is a mono-spaced font, meaning “m” and “i”
are given the same spacing.  It was common
in the 60’s and 70’s with IBM selectrics, but
not with computers. Simple, non-serif fonts
seem fine choices.)

-  Look to use smaller sized bullets.  The ones
that are smaller than small letter sizes.  Word
is good at helping to get these.

-  Choose to capitalize correctly.  I know I tend
to capitalize too many words.  Some People
Object to Too Many Capitals….

-  Know the differences between spelling English
used in the US and UK.  We all know:
 centre                                    center (US)
but did you know:
 acknowledgement                acknowledgment
 judgement                              judgment
 towards                                  toward (US)
