Why Having a Nice Looking Resume is Important

While in college and on the search for an internship or job, it is very important to have an impressive resume that not only shows off all of your skills and involvement, but also clearly differentiates you from the thousands of other students who are undoubtedly applying for the same jobs as you.

One way to stand out from a crowd of applicants is to have a nice and presentable resume. Keeping your resume uncluttered and simple is one of the best things you can do.  Typically, recruiters look at a resume for no more than 15 to 30 seconds. If your resume is easy to read and organized in a way where the things you want to be seen are where the eye is drawn first, you are more likely to get called in for an interview because your strengths have been seen and not just skimmed over.

Although Indesign can be somewhat difficult to use. However, there are a ton of online tutorials that will show you how to create a unique and appealing resume design template.
