One thing that is an absolute nightmare for employers tasked with trawling through resumes by the bucketload is encountering resumes that are more than one page long. Sure, you might want to go into detail about that part-time training course you took seven years ago, but, frankly, all your future employer wants to know is how that qualification is relevant to the job you’re applying for.
Place shorter sections of information, like a brief bio, skills, software competencies, languages and contact details in the column, along with a photo in the same column. Switch up the background color of the column to keep it visually distinctive. Placing more detailed chunks of information, such as your job experience, education and qualifications, in the other wider column will help maximise the limited space available in your creative resume layout.
Design matters. What you want is a balance — a smooth, clear look that’s got just enough panache to stand out. Adding a small pop of color is an easy way to spice things up without jarring the reader, says Dana Leavy-Detrick, owner of Brooklyn Resume Studio. Also, put some thought into the font you choose. Times New Roman is dated and boring, she says, but “a clean, sleek font gives a more tightened-up presentation.
