Its so different how the resume should look like depending on the country. Its a cultural thing. In countries like Germany, Japan, and China, its generally preferred with a professional photo. Its easier to remember the applicant. Therefore, I recommend researching the company well before sending your resumes. I prefer to generally remove the photo from the resume. Removing photos would also give me more real estate to show more information. Remember space utilisation is utmost crucial in a resume.
Every recruiter knows you are going to provide references if they request it, so there is no reason for you to include them in your resume. Remember that space on your resume is crucial. Dont waste it. Well above information is easily available on the internet but its half-baked. As I researched more and asked some of my friends about the importance of adding references in your resumes, They said, When you are applying for research internships programs, Its highly mandatory. Even when applying for PhDs, references and recommendations play a crucial role. Therefore, you cannot entirely skip adding references when applying for research internships or PhDs.
You may be thinking why would I say this? What about being creative? I am a designer, Why should I use old templates which anyone can use? With the dawn of Applicant Tracking System (ATS), You may need to hold your creative juices here. Some companies use ATS for handling resumes. These systems let companies to automatically filter candidates based on some criteria. According to ATS guidelines, your resumes should not contain any graphic element. This means no images, icons, tables or any shapes. If any of these are present, ATS could jumble up your information while reading your resumes and you could lose a potential job opportunity. There are other guidelines too around using font type, bullets etc. For full list of guidelines, read this article.
