This is a great resource that provides insight as well as visual representations of "proper" resumes. This would be a great recruiting source when looking for job applicants. Recruiters could offer this source while posting jobs in hope that recruits will follow these guidelines prior to submitting a resume. (4716)
When looking for a designer, resume style counts. I'd hire a designer who uses his/her resume to showcase creativity even if it had a typo over one that's flawless but goes the standard route. I can teach a person to proof. Creativity is God given.
