I'm in the process of job searching. Not looking for anything too amazing really because I'm actively pursuing a career in hockey with most of my time but do want to make money/gain other experience, etc. with a "real" job too, naturally.
I'm not after a graphic design job of any sort. And I'm not especially creative in this sense.
I was thinking about using something like Adobe In-Design and just making little highlights around my paragraph headings ("education", "work experience", etc.) maybe stuff them into an opaque oval with a soft color. Just to kind of add some separation to the text and give it a little life...
Then when I started the process, I thought, maybe this isn't such a good idea...the number of people that will view it as a positive will probably be outnumbered by the people that will be put-off by it as childish or too-attention-grabby...
Should I just stick to basics unless the job calls for me to be creative...? I am, I believe, a good interviewee...I'm very comfortable in the interview process and think well on my feet...so should I use that perceived fact to push me over the top and just leave the resume as a standard Word document type of deal...?
Just wondering what the feel is on this...thanks.
