image2Make your resume stand out with these modern resumes!

If you are in the job market, you know how stressful it is to constantly look for jobs, apply and get no where. There’s some tough competition out there, but to have an outstanding resume can put you ahead of the rest.

The first thing to do when applying for a job, apart from having a solid education, all the necessary skills and all of the right references is to make sure your resume is just as excellent as you believe yourself to be.

You have one shot to make a first impression. Since most applications are done online, you are submitting a digital copy of your resume, cover letter and/or references. Take it upon yourself to have a structured, beautifully designed resume package.

Nowadays a bland resume can get lost among other black and white resumes with no outstanding graphic qualities. Depending on your job search, you may want to have a good looking resume, if you are in politics or law, this may not be the case for you.

Some modern resume design elements can include pictures (depending on the job type), icons, different fonts sizes and types and even color!

Do not be afraid to stand out – your modern resume layout should be able to work in your favor.

Here are some examples:
