Your resume is a key marketing tool, and a major piece in your toolkit. Your resume puts a spotlight on your personal brand and promotes you as an ideal candidate to potential employers. The goal in writing a resume is to make yourself attractive to potential employers, securing you the opportunity to interview with the organization.
The most effective format for your resume depends on what you have done and what you are trying to accomplish.
The design of your resume is a big factor in the reader's experience and comprehension. You can labor over word choice and accomplishments to include, but unless you have considered the design of your resume, you risk the reader skipping over the most important content.
