Here you can find out how to write a resume that works. This section deals with geographic location in a resume.

Geographic Location

With my international clients, the fact that they have worked, studied, lived, or traveled abroad strengthens their credentials for international jobs. Therefore, placing the geographic location of their work experience or schooling in a prominent location can be to their advantage.

Other times, it is only part of the overall design of the information. However, making it prominent does give it more importance, whether that was the intention or not.

When you really want the geographic locations of your past experience--or anything else on your resume to stand out, the easiest way to accomplish that is to make them flush right Sample or to place them in the left-hand column of the resume. Another alternative is to tab to a fixed place on the page for each location, as in this example.

All of the samples in this section will cause problems with a scanner, since they create multiple columns or place text in usual places, which confuses the OCR software. To avoid this, tuck the place names up against the text and use bold or italics to make them stand out instead.
