Now, it’s time to make your resume look visually appealing. In this case, that means producing a document that’s legible above all else. The information should be enough to grab the attention of whoever is reading it, so your color and design choices should be relatively subdued by comparison. Start by choosing an appropriate typeface. You should use the same one throughout the resume to keep things consistent, unless you want to use a complementary font to distinguish your contact information from the other sections. Choosing a sans serif typeface will make your writing easily legible and prevent it from being incompatible with an automated screening program — Helvetica, Calibri, and Trebuchet MS are all good options.
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.
Its very important to show relevant experience to the job you are applying. You might have work experience in print media but it would be of less value when applying for a UX role. Its true that any kind of professional experience does matter. It surely improves your soft skills. But remember, recruiters would only care for it in the second stage of your recruiting process. First, They need to know your relevant skills for the role. Being specific to the role also prevents any kind of confusion at the recruiter’s end otherwise, he will have a hard time figuring it out. You also don’t want to portray yourself confused about the role you’re applying. Tailoring your resume to the role clears your purpose. It also makes it clear that the candidate knows the job he has to perform.
