If you are having trouble pasting your resume, save it as plain text before copying and paste it. This should ensure that it's more easily cut-and-pasted.


If you have HTML code in your resume that's been generated by a WYSIWYG HTML editor, or an online page-builder site, you may find it conflicts with Brainhunter's system (see HTML Tips). Try simplifying, or just use plain text.


If you want to add some special formatting to your resume such as bold headings or bullets, see Improve the Way Your Online Resume Looks.
