Job Search Tip:
What does your resume actually look like? Put on your marketing hat and try to look at your resume as if you were an advertiser promoting your services to prospective employers. This also applies to resumes you would send to a temp agency or a headhunter. Would your resume make the hiring manager or recruiter excited about bringing you in for an interview? The truth is that appearance does matter, and using a clear and easy to read layout, combined with balanced spacing, reasonable margins, and easy to read fonts (we recommend Arial, New Roman, Helvetica, and similar common fonts, but please avoid handwriting-like fonts or unusual fonts) that are not too small will go a long way to keep your resume from getting tossed in the trash can!
