Usage of modern, sans serif fonts such as Verdana or Tahoma for a fresher feel makes it attractive.

The perfect font-size –In a nutshell, size of the fonts should be a normal one. Ideal font size is 10 or 11 for the body text, 14 for sub-headings, 22 for the main page header. On the top your name should be mentioned usage of visual aids – The attraction can be made on resume by using bullet points, line breaks, bold formatting, columns, tabs. Similarity- Through the entire resume, the same manner of fonts should be used with the similar style.

Lingo – reason and the manner of your message in resume its more vital how you say than what you say to the employer through resume. Introduction serves as the most vital part of a resume, differentiating it from personal profile. An ideal introduction shouldn't contain more than 2 or 3 sentences, stating who you are, your achievements and about your skills.

A perfect resume is mostly of 2 pages, the candidate shouldn't put in the irrelevant details due to which the reader loses attention.

Again the 30 seconds time should be kept in mind to get success.
