How to Design an Eye-Catching Resume: Formatting Tips and Tricks for the Modern Resume

Melanie L. Denny, MBA

Originally Recorded January 31, 2014

This teleseminar qualifies for 1 CEU!

Are you looking for new ways to present your clients’ value on paper? Do you struggle creatively to format resumes  so they are unique and attractive? Are you sick and tired of producing boring looking résumés  that look the same client after client? Content is king, but aesthetics are easy on the eyes. It’s just as important to make your clients’ resumes inviting and easy to read. Learn innovative design techniques within Microsoft Office to create a resume that not only reads exceptionally but pops visually.

In this teleseminar, participants will learn how to:
  • Best organize information, so the “good stuff” jumps out at the reader.
  • Use color tastefully without over-saturating the page.
  • Strategically place graphics (icons, graphs, text boxes, etc.) to catch the reader’s attention without overcrowding the document.
  • Manipulate margins and spacing to create white space and give the illusion of more space while keeping it simple for clients to alter.
  • Incorporate other design elements (lines, separators, bolding, italicizing, bullets, etc.).
