check the name of your resume file by Alison Green on January 24, 2014 This is a small thing, but if you’re sending out a resume with a date like “resume2013,” please go update it right now. Otherwise, fairly soon you’ll start looking like your job search has been a lengthy one (which, rightly or wrongly, can turn some employers off) — and like you’re not paying attention to details. And while you’re at it, make sure your resume isn’t named something like “Resume with Jane’s edits.” That’s too much insider information, like leaving Track Changes on when you send it. Aside from these things, though, no one will care what your resume file is called, so feel free to ignore all advice to the contrary.
