How to style your resume?:

How to style your resume? Number of pages There is no set length for a resume. If you have information that is highly relevant to the position you are applying for, then go ahead and add an extra page. ravenneclaire

Slide 21:

2. Font and Sizing DOS DON’TS Choose easy to read fonts. Don’t choose small sizes to fit everything on one page. Use the same font throughout. Don’t pick wacky fonts. Don’t have one uniform text size throughout. ravenneclaire

Slide 22:

For sizing, many resumes follow a 24-12-10 format. This means that the name is 24, the body headers are 12, and the bullet points are 10. Just remember to keep the readability in mind when choosing sizes. ravenneclaire

Slide 23:

When choosing a font, the choice will come down to a serif style or sans serif style. For a paper version, it’s better to use serif fonts while electronic versions look better in Sans serif fonts. ravenneclaire

SERIF Fonts::

SERIF Fonts: Times New Roman Georgia Bookman Old style Century Gothic ravenneclaire

3. Lines Lines are great to use to help break up the resume and allow potential employers to better process the information. Line breaks commonly begin after the career objective or qualifications summary. From there, they are used to break each subsequent section. Too many page breaks will ruin its readability. ravenneclaire
