I once attended a job fair where they scanned all of the resumes & distributed them to hundreds of local employers. At the time, I had a very creative resume, with complex formatting. I later saw what happened to my resume once it had been scanned and "OCR'd." Not pretty. Yet another reason to follow Louise's good advice!
Working for a national network of local employment web sites, I get to see which job postings work. This is a great example of an effective job posting!

This is so clearly true, yet I talk to so many job seekers who don't believe it, or just don't pursue networking as a job hunting strategy. I guess it's more comfortable to sit at home, applying to jobs online.
Dead on. Safe in your current job? Dangerous waters!
