If you can find an effective resume layout, the odds of your document getting noticed go up dramatically.
Here are two ways to increase the chances that your resume gets picked out of the pile.
First, use graphic elements like logos to capture the reader’s attention. Color images will stand out to someone who has been looking at black and white resumes all day.
Logos from schools you attended or places you’ve worked is an essential part of writing effective resumes.
Second, use quotes from former employers or people who are familiar with your work. You can get the quotes from your LinkedIn profile, from letters of recommendation or by simply asking for them.
