Top 5 Beautiful Resume Ideas That Work
For a long time, stark white and cream were the only acceptable paper options for printing a resume. These days, you can produce a beautiful and visually arresting resume on a different color of paper. Try using a cool gray or powder blue, linen-based paper.
Both of those colors will make your choice of ink truly stand out. Stay away from pinks, oranges and neon colors. All of those can be visually jarring – they may even irritate the viewer’s eyes. If the paper you use hurts to look at, you’ll accomplish the opposite of your goal.
In terms of ink colors, you no longer need to stick with basic black. Try colors that coordinate with your paper colors – you may want to try a few different color combinations before you make your final choice.
Again, be sure that your ink and paper combination doesn’t contrast too much or clash, and that the text isn’t difficult to read. If your resume isn’t easily readable, it will not get read.
Make an Infographic
If you are handy with graphic design tools, why not make your resume into an infographic about your work history? Infographics are great additions to your resume because they make an impression on potential employers in one glance.
