Jobseekers looking to make the maximum impact with their resume will know that content is king. You are seeking to impress potential employers with your skills and ability, so a simple layout for your resume is all thatโ€™s required. And if youโ€™re sticking to something thatโ€™s easy to read, choose a nice, clear and conservative font to use such as Arial or Times New Roman.

However, anyone looking to work in an industry more focused on design or creativity โ€“ perhaps in graphic or web design โ€“ will be looking to create a wow factor with their resume that makes recruiters sit up and take notice.

Remember, human resources personnel and recruiters typically spend no more than 30 seconds glancing at a resume so if you can create a resume thatโ€™s out of the ordinary, itโ€™s the perfect opportunity to seize attention and demonstrate your talent from the start.

So where do you start? Here's how to design a winning resume.

1. Who Are You Sending Your Resume to?

As with everything geared to finding you the job you want, think first about your audience. Who will see this CV? What do you want them to take from it, not just visually on first viewing but from the content? In effect, you are placing your entire portfolio on a single page and asking to be judged. Itโ€™s a big risk but if you have confidence in your talent and ability, itโ€™s almost certainly a risk worth taking.
