WHAT A RESUME SHOULD LOOK LIKE : Build A Resume


There are times when, despite extensive editing, the resume simply cannot fit on one page. In this case, the resume should be laid out on two pages in such a way that neither clarity nor appearance is compromised.


Each page of a two-page resume should be marked clearly…


The first should indicate Page 1 of 2 and the second should include your name and the page number.


For example….Julia Ramirez - Page 2 of 2


The pages should then be stapled together. You may use a smaller font (in the same font as the body of your resume) for the page numbers. Place them at the bottom of page one and the top of page two. Again, spend the time now to experiment with the layout until you find one that looks good to you.


Always show your final layout to other people and ask them what they like or dislike about it and what impresses them most when they read your resume. Make sure that their responses are the same as what you want to elicit from your prospective employer. If they aren't the same, you should continue to make changes until the necessary information is emphasized.


Above all, your resume should be eye-catching and easy to read and it should look professional. If you're concerned about whether or not you can create an effective layout, be aware that many professional resume writing and printing services cost less than you might expect, they are familiar with preparing resumes and they know how to make a resume look good. That said….laying out your own resume is not as difficult or daunting as you might think. With a little care and consistency anyone can make a professional-looking resume. If you prepare your resume on your own, keep the following tips in mind….


Highlight the points you want the reader to notice.


Short phrases are easier to read than long sentences and paragraphs.


Use dashes (-) or dots (...) or asterisks (***), different kinds of type and underlining to guide the eye. But be sure not to make it too crowded.


Line up major headings to make the resume easy to scan.


Have at least three other people proofread your resume to make sure all spelling, grammar, punctuation and information are correct.


Choose good quality bond paper for your resume. White, ivory or gray looks best.


Make sure photocopies of your resume are of high quality.
