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.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
