Most recruiters and HR (human resource) reps look at a resume for less than a minute. Some statistics say it’s as little as ten seconds. That means it’s crucial to make a good first impression, and nothing does that better than proper formatting. You need white space, dates aligned, good fonts, and line spacing that makes your resume readable.
Don’t let your resume get thrown in the trash because of formatting. You might be the right person for the job, but you might never know. Have you ever wondered why you didn’t get called for an interview when you know you fit the job? Formatting might be the reason.
Make sure you format your resume properly and you’ll stand a much better chance of scoring the interview.
