The 7 Deadly Sins of Resume Design

They aren't recruiters, but they've got some great advice for the jobseeker attempting to craft the perfect resume.

Very nice site.

Here's an excerpt from their post on "The 7 Deadly Sins of Resume Design":

Unfortunately, when it comes to resume design, both non-designers and professional designers can commit some almost unforgivable sins.

Times New Roman
Teeny tiny font size
Grey text
