Have been tweaking with the aesthetics of my resume recently and found a couple of templates that stood out with multicolors. What's your take on those?

I think it's a no, especially a professional resume. I used to review resumes and I saw all sorts of interesting things.

This 1 girl scanned her picture on her resume. She was cute, so I invited her in for an interview. :)

NO........NO...... :twisted: Who would want to see a multicolored resume except I guess, an artist who would appreciate the colors and not the content :)

Just be straight with your resume. A nicely pakacged one page resume in B/W will do wonders(it has done for many!!). No point taking risk..

I did this too, and then I told her we could meet at my house for the interview. I made her have sex with me and then I didnt give her the job.

Two weeks later she filed a police complaint. :(

Now shes underneath my basements concrete floor :)

What are you insinuating Willget800? I just asked a straight question based on observations of other templates used. Some looked acceptable, while others looked like make-up jobs.

Suspected the use of multicolors from the start, that's why I polled the question.
