How to spell resume with proper accent marks? | Yahoo Answers

I like this article's response to the question of how to spell resume:
which gives the basis for each common version, and the best rule of thumb: be consistent or be wrong for sure!

The English spelling is resume, but in the original French it is spelled résumé

Whether the accents are appropriate or not I wouldn't recommend you use them. I've submitted several resumes thru job sites and just found out that they convert e's with accents over them to i's. So everywhere I spelled resume with accents came out as risumi. That looks really dumb when you're applying for professional level positions!!
