We reiterate the importance of not using any colors and fancy fonts to make a resume look stylish. While some people might disagree, stylish resumes are not about colored headings and funny fonts but how information is put into them to make it look professional yet trendy.
The key to good resume writing is organizing and sifting; a candidate must specify what he or she is applying for by customizing the ‘objective’ or ‘performance summeary’ specifically. Tailoring your resume to the job that you are applying for is, by far, the most important tip anyone can provide – as a general resume (One resume all jobs) is sure to put off an employer. Regardless of how much experience you have had in your long or short career, your resume should not exceed 1-2 pages. Remember that it is important to put in relevant information in your resume. For instance, when applying for a managerial position, it is alright to highlight your managerial experience at XYZ Company but leave out that you worked as a pizza delivery boy once.
The six most commonly included sections that have the capacity to make a resume stylish yet maintain a professional tone are:
- Objective / Professional Summary / Profile
- Work Experience
- Transferable Skills
- Personal Activities
- Honors and Awards
While you do not need to put all these in, make sure you specify what you have done regarding most of these as employers need to know what type of a worker you will be and how you can provide benefit to them.
Remember that there are different word-processing applications that you can use to make your resume stylish but nothing works better than black ink on white paper. All the style that you need to put in should come from the content that you write and how you arrange it before you take a print out!
