3 Resources to Help You Create a Beautiful Resume

Need a reason to update your resume? How about a beautiful, new design template! As a web designer I am a huge sucker for content appearance. Show me a nice layout, clean font, easy to read groupings, a little pizazz and you've got my attention tenfold. 

I know some of you are probably shaking your head in fear or getting sweaty palms (updating my resume is my LEAST favorite activity so I get it), but you don't need to be a designer to do this! There are SO many templates out there that you can get your hands on. You don't even need the fancy design programs. Most of the templates out there (seriously, there are so many) are compatible with standard software like Word or Pages. And if you are Photoshop or Illustrator savvy, they have those options as well.

So let's get designing! Some of my favorite templates include:
