It's not uncommon for an employer to receive 100 or more resumes for one position. Make sure your resume looks appealing. Choose a readable 10 to 12 point font such as Garamond, Calibri, Cambria, Helvetica, or Georgia. Use bullets to draw attention to your accomplishments. Leave white space between positions to avoid a cluttered look. Highlight headers with a larger or bolder font. For a more modern look try different colors, bar charts, or icons: but don’t overdo it.
