Join Steve Harris for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before starting this course, part of Designing a Resume.
This course is intended to give you a general overview of how to build a resume layout in Adobe InDesign. I'll be discussing tips, tricks, and things to consider when creating your resume. Before you begin, it's ideal if you have a general understanding of how InDesign works. As well as print design fundamentals. If you're brand new to Adobe InDesign, I would suggest that you view the InDesign CC Essential Training courses on lynda.com. That way, you're acquainted with the tools and functionality of the software.
And can focus on purely the design and production aspect of this course. If you don't have Adobe InDesign, you can follow along with the course and apply these principles to other software, such as Microsoft Word or Publisher.
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.
