Monday Motivation | Is Your Resume Looking Good?

Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!

Tip of the week

The way you design your resume can be just as important as its content. Make it as easy to read as possible, taking advantage of bullet points, clear section headers, and as much white space as you can get. Stuck while choosing a font? Stick to the classics! 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. Just as you would tailor the content of your resume to the position you’re applying for, the visual language should also be in tune with the employer’s tone and culture.
