The 7 deadly sins of resumé design

We’ve covered articles about how to improve your resume’s content. How about the design aspect of it? It is equally important to give a professional feeling. Another problem is that the design gets too fancy. LifeClever describes 7 deadly sins of resume design:

  • Fancy “resumé” paper
  • Times New Roman
  • Teeny tiny font size
  • Grey text
  • Excessive decoration
  • Weird paper size
  • Horizontal format

What do I care about resume design? – Don’t do fancy stuff; Font size is big enough for reading; Big text on section texts; Use idents and tables appropriately. If those requirements are met, I am happy to read through the resumes.
