Does your resume suck? Are you sure? Here are some ways to measure the suckiness of your resume:
How would you know? Save it in text format. Remember that fancy formatting you did on your resume? Doesn't look very good in text format? That's what is typically being seen by the resume reviewer when they pull your resume from an online resume database or applicant tracking system. That sucks, but that's the reality.
But the interviewer has a piece of paper that looks nothing like your resume. Those "cool" fonts don't exist on the interviewer's system and the printer doesn't format the way you saved it. Your printed resume sucks.
Many interviewers don't review a resume in detail until the actual interview and if your resume is not in a format that is easily readable and understandable, you will spend valuable interview time explaining why your resume sucks.
A resume is not an exercise in creative writing unless you are applying for a position in creative writing. A resume is a business document that needs to convey your information easily and efficiently. If it doesn't, it sucks.
