Colours can be an expression of creativity and certainly for a creative type resume, making use of colours and imagery of the individual’s work may actually help with their application – but it is more about showcasing their work. So, then, do colours really make a difference?
Personally, I don’t think so.
The question we want to ask ourselves, is an employer really going to choose one resume over the other because they liked the candidate’s use of the colour blue?
Again, personally, I don’t think so.
The use of black and white colours helps to make the resume look more professional and easy to read. Colours can be a distraction from what is actually written.
