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...... 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..

Saw a few templates that were multicolored and questioned the use. Just wanted some other opinions, thanx.

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

jk

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.
