Online Resumes :
Design your own resume. It's worth the effort. And don't overdo the fonts and type size.
Although anyone can learn to develop an effective resume, it can also be helpful to consult those who specialize in the career search process. In this spirit, the following are common resume and cover letter questions posed to career counselors and other experts and their responses. We have chosen to answer only one or two questions, at the same time have weighed in on a number of topics, providing a variety of helpful tips and advice.
In considering the advice provided, keep in mind that there is room for different approaches to resume development depending on your work and education experiences as well as the career path you are pursuing.

What are some mistakes to avoid? : Online Resumes
Don't download a resume from the Internet or blindly copy anyone else's look. You will be restricted by someone else's arrangement and not have a place or sufficient place to put in special items. Design your own resume. It's worth the effort. And don't overdo the fonts and type size. As a rule, don't use more than three different formatting features. You want to be readable and neat, not cute and gimmicky.
Don't put down that you type XX wpm. If you're asked, of course do so, but otherwise, don't typecast yourself - pun intended.
If you have a telephone message on your phone that is anything but professional, change it immediately.
A few of my biggest pet peeves (from the recipient's perspective) :
• Sending your resume to any and all jobs irrespective of the fit. When
responding to job postings or ads you should only send your resume
if your background closely fits the description.
• Making it obvious that the recipient is part of a mass mailing.
• Trying to go around the person designated to recruit for the position.
• Being too pushy….. Calling too often, calling when posting says NO
• Mailing it instead of E-mailing it (the latter enables the recipient to
save it and access it electronically).
