I'm working on my resume in Google Docs (Word processing) and I'm trying to add my name + personal information at the top, but I'm seeing a line of space above it.

As you can see, I'm trying to get the job done using tables (will be whiting the table borders afterwards). I got it to look how I want using headers, but I heard that some ATS (applicant tracking systems) omit the information in headers so I'm trying to recreate the look all in the body.

I looked everywhere in Google Docs on deleting the space/margin at the top but I can't figure it out.


  • Could you share a dummy document with the issue reproduced? It would be much easier to help you this way. Please have a look here for general instructions on how to share. Mar 8, 2020 at 5:54

  • After having a look at your document I believe it is doable. Is this what you are looking for? If yes let me know so I can turn it to a proper answer. Would any of the proposals suit you? One can always play around more. After all, it is a resume. Mar 9, 2020 at 4:06

Use the document header to add the content that you want to be included at the top of the page.

The above because paragraph should be included above and below a table. The same occurs with other elements like images.
