Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Does resume require signature?
A signature at the end of the resume in a way also acts as a validation by you that the details you mentioned in your resume are true to the best of your knowledge. It is proper business etiquette to sign your letter. However, if you are sending an email cover letter and resume, a signature might not be necessary.
Do you sign below or above your name?
The signature includes your handwritten and typed name. For formal and semi-formal letters, add four lines of space below your closing, and then type your name. In formal letters, you should include your full name; in semi-formal letters, you may use only your first name. Sign your name in the space.
Is it OK not to include dates on your resume?
(To be clear, it's completely fine to leave your graduation date off your resume. It's really common to do that once you're past a certain age, and generally no one many cares exactly what year you graduated, unless you're freshly out of school. But with work experience, length and recency really matters.)

Do you need to put dates on your resume?
