Can I use my Resumes original formatting, style and chronology? Why did my Resumes format change?

We want to keep Indeed Resumes looking relatively uniform and in chronological order so that employers can review them quickly and easily. Using uniform formatting also makes it simpler for users to update their Indeed Resumes.

When uploading your resume, make sure that the file is text-based. We recommend uploading a file type that is either a Word document (.doc, .docx), a PDF created from a text file (not scanned in as an image) or a plain .txt, .rtf, .html, or .odt file. Also, be sure that your file is no greater than 5 MB in size.

Keep in mind that you can sign in and make any necessary edits to your resume once it's uploaded.

**Note that resume upload is not available in all countries.
