Ray’s Resume Tips: Using the Format Painter

Ray Adams is a fellow Career Services Counselor who has a tremendous amount of knowledge about resumes and formatting in Word.  From time to time, Ray will be a guest blogger to share some of his tips.

Once you set your tab in one location in your document, you do not have to repeat the entire process for all of your current and previous employment.  Use the format Painter!  The Format Painter is a great tool for resumes or any document where you will be doing a lot of formatting and it’s easy to use!  The Format Painter allows you to select a portion of text and copy all of the formatting in that text.  The Format Painter is located under the “Home” tab on the top left of your word toolbar. Click it once and you can “paint” the format once.  Click it twice and you can “paint” the format multiple times.
