Naming Your Résumé

In a study of more than 10,000 résumé files from a variety of industries, a résumé-writing firm found that the file names of more than half, 54 percent, did not contain the job seeker's name.

Don't call your résumé "résumé.doc." It means a recruiter will be forced to spend time renaming the file - assuming you've made the cut. Make it easy for people to find your résumé. Call it "John Smith resume.doc"
