How to deal with intentional grammar issues within my resume, what file format to use?

by KC

I have drafted my resume based on as much research as I could gather on the current expectations of style and format. Since the short and to-the-point style of incomplete sentences is so widely accepted, how should I deal with the fact that Word marks each of these problems up as an issue?

I can turn it off or accept it on my system. But won't anyone I send it to see a messy document when they open it?

Any experience you have to share is appreciated.

ANSWER: Stop worrying so much. If you've filled your resume with easy to read, short bulleted phrases, believe me, employers will appreciate it. They're not going to be looking for grammar errors through Word. In fact, they may just print out your resume. Or they may not have the grammar checker turned on.

Trust your work and go ahead & send out those resumes!
