Today I am asking "Does your resume have Visual Appeal?"
That’s right. Visual Appeal?
Does it look goooooood!
Not only should your resume make you look good, it should also look good by itself.
Before I tell you the 'HOW', let me tell you the 'WHY'
Reasons why you should make sure your resume 'look' Good:
> Too many applicants
With the advent of electronic application systems, it just takes a simple click to apply.
Some sites (monster.com) let you apply to multiple jobs with one click.
With so many applications coming thru ( Recently I received over 200 applications for a Guest Services Assistant position) your resume should stand out.
If it is pleasing to the eyes, is different, the recruiter/company will be more inclined to spend time on it.
> Similar Formats
Everyone has Microsoft word, and so everyone has the standard resume formats.
I like the formats. I just think you can make the formats look attractive.
> A picture is worth a thousand words!
