Employers (usually) read resumes on their computer screen. So send them your resume in a PDF
file and not
in Word/Pages/... format. Why? Link building of course!
When creating your pdf resume, make sure you add a link to your social media profiles (LinkedIn), your personal website (if you have one) or online portfolio (like Behance) and your contact information.
First of all, it's way easier to click a link on your resume than to look you up by hand. Most of the time they can't even be bothered. This way you'll direct them to your website or social media profile in the easiest way possible.
Secondly, it means you can limit the amount of information on your resume. If they can see/read more online, you can keep your resume neat and tidy.
Last but not least, it's smart to make your resume interactive. It will make for a more interested employer/reader.
