RESUME FORMATTING GUIDELINES
The format of your resume is equally as important as the content. Your goal in formatting is to create a resume that allows the reader to absorb the maximum amount of information in a very short period of time (usually 20-30 seconds).
The structure of your resume which was covered in the previous screen establishes the framework for categorizing information. The accompanying handout contains formatting guidelines based on employer feedback on how the information should be visually presented in order to make a positive impression.
