Keep it Simple When it Comes to Your Resume

Overly ornate resumes are not only difficult for the human reader, they can also trip up recruiting software.

When it comes to resumes, simple is key. Keep to only essential information.

  • Avoid using graphics; these can distract from the content of your resume, and Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) cannot process images.
  • Take the time to revise and edit your resume twice, if not more. Ideally, your resume should be 2-pages.
  • Incorporate keywords and phrases from the specific job description.

The best way to avoid an overly ornate resume is to keep it simple and direct. For help creating the perfect resume, contact us today for a free consultation.
