A job seeker sent me a resume the other day that made me cringe. There were lots of colored fonts of varying sizes and types. At first glance, it looked confusing. At second glance, it looked worse.
You might think you'll impress a hiring manger by having a resume that stands out from the job search crowd, but it doesn't usually work that way.
Employers usually only spend 30 seconds or so reviewing each resume. So, they need to be able to see (as does recruiting management software) at glance why you're qualified.
It can be helpful to review resume writing basics to be sure your resume includes everything relevant to the job you're applying for - and that it looks good. Keeping it simple is a good strategy.
