Resume Posting Tips
While it is tempting to simply copy all of the text from your
resume document and paste it into the Resume Bank Entry Form, do
not do this. The VAB Job Bank is designed to store basic
information about your broadcasting professional experience in a
raw text format. It is not designed to store detailed, lengthy, or
specially formatted resumes copied from desktop publishing
Resume Posting Tips
Everyone has their resume stored in Microsoft Word or some other
desktop publishing software program. It's tempting and
convenient to simply copy all of the text from your resume and
paste it into the Resume Bank Entry Form. As tempting as this
may be, you should not do this.
The VAB Job Bank is designed to
store basic information about your
broadcasting professional experience in a raw text format. It
is not designed to store detailed,
lengthy, specially formatted resumes copied from your favorite
desktop publishing program such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect
nor to mimic these formatting features. As tempting as it may
be, you should not copy your resume directly from your publishing
program like Microsoft Word and paste it directly into
the Resume Bank Entry Form.
Microsoft Word and other letter publishing programs allow you to
use a lot of proprietary formatting such as bulleted lines,
letters, italicized letters, tabbed indents, and
so on. All of these formatting features are known as "markup"
which allows you to cosmetically dress up your raw text. When
you copy your resume directly from these programs into a web form
field (like the Resume Bank Entry Form), you capture most if not
all of this markup and unknowingly paste into the web form along
with your text. In most cases, you usually can't even see the
Web pages and forms cannot interpret each and every programs'
markup codes and as a result, it is often displayed as "garbage" to
the web page. This results in a rather distorted or ugly
version of what you pasted.
All "pasted" data is subject for deletion or rejection
into the VAB Resume Bank.
So what should I do?
Save a copy of your resume as a TXT (text) file. By saving
it as TXT file, you remove all of the proprietary markup and this
will allow for a clean "paste". Then open this copy in MS
Word or even Windows Notepad and clean it up as needed from
that. Remove all unnecessary line breaks, indents, and so on.
Do your best to make it presentable in Windows Notepad or another
similiar text editor.
Then, once you have clean text to work with, you can copy from
and paste the "cleaned" text into the form.
