Hi Recruiters 👋 Do you prefer to see a plain pdf resume formatted from Word (simple white and black document), or a colorful pdf with personality (granted it’s not too crazy with fonts)? What do majority of people in here have?

Black and white in case it has to be printed (color ink so wasteful!), but nicely/visually laid out. Always always pdf, so not send me Word! Put a clean filename on it.

And I totally agree with the good filename! Also, for the love of cheese, use a nondescript or professional email address!! 😳😳

This is mostly the case. It drives me nuts. I used to Save As for them so they could look better to the hiring manager and now I don’t have the time nor inclination. This is how you want I present? By all means!

I'm not sure about it, we ask for the resume in the ATS but each Hiring Manager reviews the PDFS

I have listened on a few podcasts about the iffy photos of self, as it can lead to discrimination charges, but my resume is nice color blocking, personally. I would say clean is always better and well organized for skimming, unless you're a creative and need to show style.

Interesting! Yeah, I always find it a little strange when there’s a headshot on the resume.
