You are doing a resume, not a magazine layout. If you don't know how to do a resume, examples are readily available darned near everywhere. There is quite a bit of advice--some of it contradictory--about how to format resumes. In format and content, your resume should be appropriate to the job you are seeking. If you are applying for a senior-level administrative or professional job, your resume can be quite extensive (long). If you are applying for an entry-level job, your resume should be no more than two pages, preferably one page. There is a trend toward forcing professionals to limit their resumes to two pages. However long your resume is, it should be readable. If it will be read by a person, it may be elegant but simply formatted. Absolutely no more than two fonts. Many entry-level resumes are scanned and filed electronically. In these cases, your resume should be formatted very simply in a single font. That is, it is little more than plain text--very little more.chrisleeroth said:I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a way to do resumes through word.

Good advice by Mr. Me above. Just wanted to add that you should never format a resume in "landscape" mode. I've seen someone with a sideways resume like that at a job fair. Didn't get too much respect. After all, who wants to hire a goofball like that?chrisleeroth said:I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a way to do resumes through word.
