Customizing your Resume

February 27, 2018  

It’s great that you’re unique and you want to distinguish yourself, however, you have to think very carefully about the industry that you’re in and ask yourself what level of customization within your resume is appropriate for the industry in which you are working.

We work within the financial services space. Anything that deviates from a single page, white, heavier stalk, black print resume is definitely going to catch somebody’s interest, but if you are too far from standard, then you might be mocked for your uniqueness. It is a reality in the finance industry, but not so much in other industries where you might be afforded more creative, artistic space.

For more information like this, consider joining the Executive Career Academy, powered by Vlaad and Company. This program runs over three days and fully explores best-practice themes, methods, and initiatives to use when transitioning into a superior career stream, re-entering the market, or simply finding a better career.
