Additional Tips for Resume Layout Example

  1. Avoid using fancy fonts, as your resume is not the venue for creativity but it should be marketable enough for it to be noticed. By saying that means you may want to stick with good fonts, including Times New Roman, Arial and Calibri.
  2. Use legal size white paper to print out your resume and do not use textured ones or perfumed ones.
  3. Keep the font size only between 10 and 12; if the font type chosen is smaller or larger than desired, then you may want to adjust into half font sizes, including 10.5.
  4. Take out irrelevant details from the resume but include only the most relevant ones that are significant to the application.
  5. Keep your resume to one page so that you can avoid boring the reader, but let him find important sections at a glance. If you can’t help but make up to two or three pages due to your work experiences, make sure you list down only the most important job positions you have handled.
