Resume Formatting: A Great Way to Doom Yourself

Patrick: Nearly everyone who applies to jobs [has] the same resume format. What are some ways to stand out?

Your resume format is not how you want to stand out. You want the first thought of your reviewer to be one of familiarity. Definitely avoid the risk of raising any subconscious "red flags".

Fancy fonts and colored text are a good way to get dismissed as immature.

Don't take risks on your resume format. Focus on keeping your content well organized and easy to read. Let your skills and accomplishments differentiate you.
