My family made transition from windows to Ubuntu (for everyday use) and Debian (for me to learn more by wasting days and sometimes weeks to get small things working.). Resently my contract ended and am in the market searching for new contracts. I was using libre office and open office in different pc’s. I edited my resume and also submitted it to some positions. But later when I opened my resume in windows I was surprised to see the bulleted lists are not within custom margin in word. Everything else looks the same but bullets does not look good.
Unfortunately HR personnel does not generally ask for rtf or pdf formats. Again the fonts are different in Ubuntu and Windows. So, Be sure you have access to windows OS and Word for submitting your resume as mostly HR personnel might be using windows and word.
Save it in word 95/98 format and not latest docx format as we don’t know which version they are using.
Microsoft word has a great feature called styles. create custom styles and make sure everything is using one of your custom style. This feature will save a lot of time while you do little customization to your resume for each job submission. To learn more about word styles see some youtube videos on using word styles.
Search monster, dice, google for resume samples to know what formats everyone is using. Now think and create your unique resume style for resume and cover letter different from others. It tells more about you to HR.
Regarding content, you might also want to incorporate some small good things from the resumes you found. Now review and see if you can improve on it.
It’s been 12 years I still revise my resume So, It’s easy to endup in an endless loop.
All the best and don’t forget to submit with style
