The resume preview is designed based on the feedback we've received from employers. We worked with them to ensure the most important elements were visible in a way that they wanted to see it. This includes the formatting of the sections and the order they appear in.
Occasionally, some characters that are used within a resume document do not carry over properly from your Word or PDF documents to our systems (due to formatting such as hidden HTML code, which is found in all Word documents or tables, borders etc.). In such cases, the information may get rearranged or misplaced during the conversion.
The easiest way to fix this is to remove the formatting before uploading it by copy/pasting the text of your resume into Notepad, and then copy/pasting or upload your resume from the Notepad file. Another option would be to upload the original document as is and then manually fix any mistakes using the edit button.
Be sure to always preview your resume before submitting it.
Resume Expert is your Workopolis-formatted resume that has been optimized to be searchable within our Resume Database. Employers often search our database to find qualified candidates for jobs, sometimes opportunities that are not even advertised.
Resume Basics are now created automatically for your application history reference. When you see a Resume Basic in your account it means that you have attached your resume to the application, and the employer has received a copy of the original document.
Some candidates may have Resume Basics that are not attached to a specific application. These resumes were created over two years ago and are not optimized to be found in our resume database by employers.
