Needless to say that resume is very critical in your job hunting. In addition to have relevant information for the hiring manager, your resume design, i.e. the presentation, is of equal importance. You want your resume design to be appealing, attractive, and impressive. It should help your resume to stand out of the crowd and leave a good impression to the hiring manager.
