So how do make your resume stand out to show employers that you’re a worthy candidate? To help make sure that you end up in the “yes” pile, here’s how to make your resume memorable for the right reasons:
Make Sure It’s Easy-to-Read

Just one classic font such as Arial or Times New Roman
Bulleted list of experience and skills
Check your resume’s readability with a quick, objective scan to see if it captures your key points.
