Notes from the resume writers’ front:
Resume writers are creative, stay abreast of changing trends, and make good subtle use, where appropriate, of colors and graphics.
In contrast, a recruiter’s perspective is: “Make it easy for me to understand your fit for the role via your work experience, be truthful, don’t be sloppy and please be brief!”
From first-hand experience, we know that, unless you are in a professional arena that demands artistic creativity, e.g. marketing or graphic design, resumes should be conservative. Too much “art” in a resume can be distracting or worse yet, advertise a smoking “hired” gun.
At Career Forward, we aim for the right balance between “art,” relevancy, authenticity, impact and function.
We think we consistently hit the mark and look forward to sharing ideas with you on this topic!
