    These design formats are fun and eye-catching and can definitely add some pizazz to an applicant’s presentation…particularly for people in creative fields. But content is king and a fabulously designed resume can’t make up for less than fabulous content. These samples are focusing on competencies and job tasks, but neglecting the more critical accomplishment-focused statements that recruiters and hiring managers have come to expect on resumes. In addition to an impeccable design strategy, I would recommend identifying your stories of success and focusing on the impact you had on the projects you managed. Even if you are an entry-level candidate, you can gain the attention of the hiring manager by focusing on school, internship, summer job, and part-time job successes.
