All Things Considered

Probably the most important consideration as your write is your intended audience: your future employer. Do some research into the company. What are its goals? In what direction has it been moving in the last five years? Are you responding to a specific job description? How do your experiences and skills fit the description?

Important information needs to stand out and be easy to find. Your resume should be well organized and pleasing to the eye. Top, bottom, left, and right margins should be at about 1 inch. Use a standard font, such as Times New Roman, Helvetica, or Arial, and use italics, bolding, and underlining sparingly. Remember that your resume may be scanned, copied, faxed, etc. a multiple number of times.
