I am having trouble uploading my resume to my Imdb page. It is a microsoft word doc.x which I thought was basic word. I even tried to change it to just microsoft word.doc & still won't upload ? How do I get help with this issue ?

Ryan, since I have no experience with this, I thought perhaps an answer provided to another user by an IMDb Rep MIGHT help in your situation. Read Michelle's response here and see if it helps at all. https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...

If not, please come back her and advise...I'm certain someone her on Get Sat will be able to assist.

Nope that didn't work out for me either on my profile. I was able to add everything else to my profile. But it still wouldn't accept my Microsoft Word doc as an upload of my acting resume ??? Does anyone else know what to do with this issue ? If you do please assist.

Hello Ryan,

We do only accept (.doc) word files. I see you've attempted that as well. Do you receive an error message when attempting to upload? If so, please reply with the exact error code for further assistance.

Also, please be sure your resume does not contain any of the following:

  • Profanity
  • Slander of individuals or companies
  • Advertising for products or services
  • Text that infringes on the copyright, trademark, or patents of a third party.

The choice of uploading a resume as a PDF file seems so elemental, I cannot fathom why this selection is not available. On line resumes never look good as a perfectly formatted document. Please make this available.

Thanks Trevor I have finally been able to upload my resume. Now I'm seemingly stuck though. Awaiting my profile to be (Verified ) is there any other possible department that you can send my info to, so this issue can be straightened out please. I have already created a personal /private message to IMDB admin. About the issue. I'd like to be verified so I can really start submitting to castings. Thanks Trevor, Ryan

What do you mean by "awaiting my profile to be (verified)?"  If you mean that the items on your resume page state they are not verified by staff, that won't happen. It's there to let users know that you added them without participation and verification by staff. If you want to add an item that becomes verified, you need to add the credit to the title's page and it will be added, if accepted, as a verified  item on your IMDb list of credits as verified by staff.

These other posts don't seem to help me. I have basic microsoft word and have tried to upload my resume which includes a description of my novel, THE OATH. Being old and crusty, getting my basic word to be .doc, I just don't know.

This is a new issue, unrelated to the solved thread. Allowing this to be a new discussion.

Please reference the new conversation here: Having trouble uploading my resume

I too am having issues uploading my resume, which is also in DOCX format.  I am using Windows 8.  I have followed quite a few of the linked correspondents to no avail.  Any help is much appreciated.
