Join Steve Harris for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the layout, part of Designing a Resume.
Let's take the same approach to our traditional…resume as we did with our modern design.…And get our content colors and general…layout established before we drop in written content.…Since this layout uses more text and detail,…we may want to consider reducing the outer margins.…Or font sizing to fit things nicely.…Let's get started.…If we click Ctrl+d or Cmd+d, let's…select Nicolette's resume and detail and click Open.…With our loaded cursor, we'll click onto…the paste board and it gives us a view of the content in that document.…As you can see, it's really spaced out.…
We're not seeing all of it.…And we can change this within our import options.…So let's delete this text box out.…We'll hit Cmd+d again, or Ctrl+d.…We'll select the same document.…However, let's choose, show import options, and click Open.…We get this dialogue box, and it gives us a few options.…The option I'm looking for is, remove styles and formatting from text.…If we select that.…And click OK.…Then paste our content onto the paste board.…You can see that it takes out all that…
Note: Steve uses Adobe InDesign to create these resumes, but we've included a bonus chapter that shows you how to recreate the same designs in Microsoft Word or the software of your choice.
