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 programs.

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.

Why not?
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, headings, bold 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 markup code.

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.
