Kelly's Resume/Career Quick Tip of the Week
Resume formatting and templates: A couple things to consider if you are updating your resume and using some of the newer formats with pictures, solid blocks with light letters, big initials, and two columns with information. Keep it simple to read and import! There are some technical reasons to use simple formatting. Medium to large companies and search firms are likely using an applicant tracking system of some sort. These are advance programs but some of the recent trends in resumes can cause formatting issues. Your header may be chopped up from that head shot you added or the big initials. You always want to use a standard format and a program like word or a PDF.  Use simple fonts. The new trend of having skills, degrees etc in a side column while the most important part of the resume, what you did and accomplishments, is minimized, isn't a great professional format.  Two columns isn’t how a human or a computer likes to read. Sometimes what happens is each column comes out as a separate page after being parsed into software. Not always, but is it worth it? Make it clean, easily read, and easy for the user to import and work with. The words are important, not the flash (at least for most professions).
