Once you've decided on the content of your resume, you'll want to consider various styles for presenting the information. First, there are graphic elements to choose, such as the typeface and layout. Avoid anything flashy or cute-sy. Use a standard typeface, that's easy to read. Don't make the type size too small. Likewise, the layout should allow the reader to easily glance over the contents. You'll also want to make sure the information is logically organized. Each section generally has its own heading, which may be underlined, in bold, all caps, or otherwise set apart from the text. Most resumes are structured in chronological form, listing work experience in the 'most recent' order. Another type is the functional form, which groups your experience under certain categories, rather than by time. There may be other structures as well, but since the chronological form is the most familiar, it's probably your best choice. Finally, double-check the final draft before duplicating. Have it run off on bond paper of at least 60 pound weight. For a professional look, white and off-white are still the preferred colors.
