Tips for a Sexier Resume

Tips for a Sexier ResumeThere’s a popular saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” Well, that’s certainly true when it comes to using proper punctuation. But it’s not true that “What you don’t know can’t hurt you.” If your career documents are riddled with incorrect or inconsistent punctuation, prospective employers are most likely going to think that you’re unprofessional or lack the skills necessary to succeed in today’s workplace.

On the other hand, hiring managers LOVE a resume that’s easy to read. It’s a huge turn-on to come across a document with visual appeal.
