    I think the unfortunate sexism and lack of understanding in the comments here is unacceptable.

    DN mods, please do the right thing and publicly decry the dialogue here. You're witnessing the community become ever more hostile to women.

    We just launched the website for Brown's annual student hackathon. We have a focus on mentorship and diversity, and try to communicate that through our design.

    Feedback welcome!

    Would be nice to have a few example images I can try out without having to go hunt for my own!

    A lot of these are visually well designed, but seem to miss some key things about resume-design. These are a few things I noticed, and I could be wrong, but here goes:

    • Legibility. Some of them have huge paragraphs, some of them centered text, some of them extremely wide columns. One or two have circularly shaped text, etc.

    • Direction. Usually in a resume, you want the reader to follow one logical direction, glancing over the most important things within seconds, and then having the freedom to learn more if they want to. Having a large number of columns with solid lines separating them, and sections that compete for attention is probably not the best idea.

    • Iconography. Having a row of social media icons on a print resume is not useful, and similarly, icons for icons' sake could distract from text.

    • Visualizations. There is a fine line around where visualizations (for skills etc.) are useful or overkill. Very few do them well. Often not necessary.

    • Content. There is no one-size-fits-all rule here, since every resume has a different audience, but to the extent possible, a resume should have just enough content to be readable in 30-45 seconds, and nothing extraneous.

    A good example of a resume I recently came across:

    I think this still holds true.
