Three different design approaches to make your resume stand out and make hiring managers take notice.
- Hi, I'm Steve Harris, and welcome to Designing a Resume. In this course, I'll walk you through three significantly different examples of Designer Resumes. We will examine a clean and modern resume design, that uses lots of white space and simple color to convey information. Next, let's take a look at a traditional resume design example. This layout uses classic serif fonts, and rich, regal colors, to convey a professional, and sophisticated look.
Lastly, I've created a fun and artistic resume, that uses bright colors, bold fonts, and rounded corners, to create a fun and creative look. We also won't forget to touch on some general strategies, and outputting your resume for submission, to various job sites around the web. If you're ready for a resume redesign, let's get started.
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.
