How to achieve the infographic look? First, divide your resume layout up into a grid with two columns and four or five rows. Focus on placing one section of data into each square of the grid, whether that’s your list of awards and certificates, or your educational history.
Place shorter sections of information, like a brief bio, skills, software competencies, languages and contact details in the column, along with a photo in the same column. Switch up the background color of the column to keep it visually distinctive. Placing more detailed chunks of information, such as your job experience, education and qualifications, in the other wider column will help maximise the limited space available in your creative resume layout.
The top one-third of your resume is what a recruiter or hiring manager scans to determine if they will read the rest … and they only give it three seconds,” says career coach Jennifer Braganza. Make yours an attention grabber: Point the reader to places where you have samples of your work product — LinkedIn, a personal website — and add your phone and email address. Bonus tip: If you’re still using a Hotmail or Yahoo account, now’s the time to get a Gmail address — or, if applicable, an email tied to your website. “Having a Yahoo, AOL, or education-based email address makes you look like you’re living in the past,” says Christy Hopkins, human resources consultant at Fit Small Business.
