Job Applicant QuestionsCategory: ResumeHow should I format my resume??
Kyler Marsh Staff asked 8 years ago

Is there a certain way I should format my resume? I’ve applied to a bunch of places, but I’m not getting very far in the process. Should I make it fancier? Or just keep doing what I’m doing?

The format of your resume isn’t that important as long as things are broken down into the necessary categories, it provides a sense of linearity, and it has all of the information on it that a prospective employer would expect and need to get to know you. Make your information flow nicely, and be very easy to read. Even if the format isn’t that important, you still want the employer to be able to navigate it easily, so always go with simplicity over fancy.
