Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!
Tip of the week

The design of your resume can be just as important as its content. Make it as easy as possible to read by:

  • Taking advantage of bullet points
  • Using clear section headers
  • Having as much white space as possible

If you’re not sure which font to use, then stick to classics like Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri, and Helvetica. They’re easy to read and easily recognizable by digital application systems.

Not sure if the layout should be creative or traditional? Stick to traditional, unless you’re applying for a creative position. Tailor the content of your resume to the tone and culture of the employer.
