Keep your résumé simple — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
You want your résumé to stand out. But that doesn’t mean you should overdose on eye-popping graphics or fluorescent colors (unless you’re applying for a job in a hip industry, such as fashion). Never use more than three type fonts because your résumé will look too busy to the reader’s eyes. And print your résumé on gray paper with a half-inch white border. This way, your résumé will communicate a classy, distinctive quality while remaining easy to read.
