We reiterate the importance of not using 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 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 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 one page. Remember that it is important to put in relevant information in your resume and while it is alright to highlight your managerial experience at XYZ Company, you can choose to 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:
- Work Experience
- 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 is software 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!
