How to win your dream job: Resume design tips

Been a while since you dusted off the ol’ resume? Here are some tips to help you put your best foot forward. As they say, opportunity knocks.

Create multiple versions of your resume

Because HR software scans your resume for keywords, you’re more likely to get good results if you create a different version of your resume for each industry you’re looking for work in. In Lucidpress, you can quickly create multiple versions of your resume to appeal to different companies. (And if you use smart fields, it will populate that data for you automatically!)

Man editing resume

Include industry-related keywords

Speaking of scanning... If your resume doesn’t contain the right keywords, the hiring manager probably won’t see it. Pay attention to the qualifications of the job and use those words within the body of your resume.

Include a headshot

Though some HR managers advise not to include a photo on your resume, many job-seekers say it helps them get more interviews. On the one hand, a nice photo can humanize you to recruiters. On the other hand, you might be interviewed (or not) for reasons pertaining to your appearance. If you do use a picture, make sure it’s a professional headshot or passport photo. Remember to update your photo regularly so it stays current.

Headshot

Use plain fonts

Readability is critical—not only for the person hiring you, but for the software that’s doing the initial reading for them. Using decorative fonts or scripts may look nice, but they could keep scanners from translating the text properly. Lucidpress has tons of fonts that are easy for document scanners to read, all available in our free resume maker.
