Mastering the Art of Resume Presentation
Part of the Australian Resumes For Dummies Cheat Sheet
A stylish and legible resume will impress recruiters and make you stand out from the crowd. Be consistent with your formatting, writing style and spacing to give your resume a smart, professional look. Here are a few tips to help you create an attractive, easy-to-read document:
Use one or two common fonts like Times New Roman, Arial or Garamond.
Stick to 10–12 point font size for main text, slightly larger font for headings.
Keep your resume uncluttered — use plenty of white space.
Use bullet points to list responsibilities and achievements.
Choose a simple layout that’s easy to read.
Be consistent — don’t mix fonts, headings sizes and so on.
