The colorful resume … literally!

January 21, 2015

What color is your resume?  If you are thinking I mean that metaphorically, sorry, that’s for another posting. Today it’s about color.  I could have named this post The Black and Blue Resume, but I think that’s a bit weird. Whether online or on a printed page, the all-black type on white background has a look of yesteryear about it.  You need a touch of blue. Blue as in hyperlinks. Blue that can lead the reader to a work sample, a photo, a positive review, press coverage, or any other aspect of your portfolio. Blue can guide one to your LinkedIn profile, your website, your blog, or your product. When I see a resume with no links at all, I worry that the writer isn’t connected to much.  Show us!  Lead us to your work and prove what you are saying about yourself. Reveal at least a touch of blue.
