I prefer Neenah Classic Crest in Natural White with a Super Smooth finish. Never ever use pink paper with strawberry scent. 2. Times New Roman, the default typeface in Microsoft Word is Times New Roman, and thus its the default for most rsums.
Its a tragedy, because Timess letterspacing and wordspacing is wretched in Word. The result is an unharmonious mess. To repent: Choose a different typeface. I wont go into explaining x-heights or the difference between Humanist Sans and Geometric Sans. Use color, but very sparingly, if at all. No more than one color in addition to black. 6. Weird paper size, if you live in the United States, the standard paper size is 8.5 x 11in. For the ultimate in quality, look for heavy paper with the highest brightness rating. Read more, rEAD less.
Excessive decoration, weird paper size, horizontal format 1. Fancy rsum paper, take a tour of any office supply store and youll see shelves of extravagant rsum papers featuring special linen and parchment finishes. It can be slightly heavier than regular copy paper, but not stiff as a board. An ever so slight hint of cream is fine. Itll make your resume easier on the eyes than the super-ultra-pure-snow-driven white paper many designers are fond of.
Its easier to print and package. 7. Horizontal format. In an attempt to stand out, some designers format their rsums in a landscape format. This is more annoying than innovative. To repent: Keep to a portrait format.
