9. Make your resume readable.
You’ll find as many kinds of resume formats and layouts as there are people, so don’t get hung up on design. The key is to have your resume appear organized with lots of white space to make it easy on the eyes. Employers particularly like wide margins for scribbling notes, since Post-Its cost money.
Stick to a simple legible font — nothing cute or colorful or cursive or so tiny that it requires squinting. (Be kind to us old people and think minimum 10-point.) Some old-school recruiters insist that a resume should be only one page, but a second or even third page is fine — even recommended — if you have more than ten years of significant work experience, or have long lists of relevant accomplishments, such as artistic credits, publications, awards or other achievements. Those lists should appear on the subsequent pages, like appendix exhibits in a report.
Finally, save your resume as an Adobe PDF file to ensure it can be read when emailed. Word .doc files are also fine, as is the new .docx
Included in your CV site are three translators, to create a PDF, DOC and Spreadsheet From either source.
