Well, for the moment I send a simple MSword version to employers.
I would probably reconfigure as an PDF file.
Sure the employers want the easiest to read. But is a designed resume harder to read ? Isn’t it more enjoyable when you go through dozens of classic resumes ?
Its not a question of whether HR will get a kick aesthetically when perusing a candidate’s CV, once apps, usually have been culled to a manageable pile. Personal info is merely a point of reference for the employer, hence my initial reply.
I don’t think examples from veterans apply to those who start in the industry. Veterans don’t need to say more than what they did, while newbies have more to sell themselves.
On the contrary regardless of field a prospective applicant seeks to enter, samples and/or pro forma skewed documents created by experienced people, tend too serve as an optimised template, I’d previously found. So again the simple straight forward approach combined when appropriate demonstration of skillset and relevant output, is crucial.
So I followed the principle “If in doubt, ask on a forum”
Which is why I’d like some opinions on this particular resume. Is it harder to read ? How can it be more enjoyable to look at ?
You asked, I volunteered one, so to be clear it looks unprofessional, not a design one would normally tailor an important document with.
aaaAAANYWAY ! your call.
Actually its the quality of your work that people typically determine, regardless of layout you eventually decide upon.
