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.
