The formatting of your document is changed because when it was uploaded the standard margins were being applied. If the margins in your document are set outside the standard margins it will cause formatting changes to occur (including words moving to different lines or pages).
Try saving your document as a PDF and re uploading it, as this can resolve the issue. If you are still experiencing formatting issues, you will need to adjust the margins in your document to the standard (2.54 cm top and bottom, 3.17 cm left and right) and your file should upload in the correct format. Also, saving the file in the Rich Text Format (RTF) or PDF helps to alleviate any formatting issues.
In order to ensure that you are not encountering difficulties with the formatting of your documents please save your file as a PDF document.
For resume and cover letter documents:
- On your computer, select and open the file you would like to upload.
- Click [Save As] and save the document as a PDF.
- Please name your document and save the new PDF document on your computer.
NOTE: If you have already applied to a position, convert the document to a Searchable PDF file and re-upload the document to the job posting in the Job Application Log.
