No. ResumeMaker has made arrangements to
include the content of your resume, with it's unique style in tact. In
special cases, the ResumeMaker team will contact you if they need to
change either the content or style of the resumes you submit.

From time to time, the ResumeMaker team
reviews sample resumes for popular phrases to be included in other
sections of the software, such as "Sample Phrases". You may opt-out of
this practice by checking the appropriate box above.

If you know how to create a zip file,
then please do so. Otherwise, you may send documents in batches of no

DO I NEED TO FICTIONALIZE?
Fictionalizing your resumes is no longer
necessary because this will be done by the ResumeMaker team. However,
this is still a good idea, but please be sure to use "nondescript" names
which might appear to be real, not ones that are obviously fake.
