Headlines should be of same size, font, and weight. Every line should be aligned properly. Don't ever forget to spell check and proofread. Mention your phone number, Email Id at the top, So it will be visible to the recruiter. Include the phone and fax numbers as an easy reference. Limit the length of the resume up to two pages.

Hope you will get benefited.

Good Luck

Wow. I'm reading the original post and all the tips and tricks since then. All I can think is, "My resume is so boring!" I kept mine very minimal and to the point. I think minimalism can be helpful, but I do need serious flavor. A little bit of arugula, some drippings of vinegar dressing, definitely a few extra cheese. Hmm. Really pondering that one tip on qualifications over objectives. Yeah, back to the drawing board I go.

I definitely employ the use of large headers / regular body font. That's just eye-catching and appealing to me personally. I also recommend adding your own website link that is relevant to your resume.

Oh, and cover letters. Always acknowledge the details of the job, the reputation of the company, and then explain exactly how you fit into all of that. Keep it at three paragraphs (one page), and use website link/e-mail right under your "signature".

Default Resume help

Having a second (or third or fourth) pair of eyes read over your resume is very helpful. When you get used to reading it its easy to overlook grammatical or punctuation errors, because you are so used to seeing it as you want to.
When I was a manager and I came across a resume with errors it went right in the shredder! I have also had resumes that I had worked and reworked thinking it was perfect, and it took a fresh perspective to notice problems and weird sentences.
Hope this helps
