Unacceptable fonts: o Anything that looks like handwriting o Anything italicized or too bold, except for headers. o Anything ornate. o Fonts that look like Courier. Paper:  pink is not cute.  I like to veer away from white, though – it makes it  easier to pull your resume out of a stack.  Pale greys or ecru are best. Balance:  don’t have your resume right-heavy or left-heavy Reverse chronological order:  most current activities first Things we should all include: o Our super GPA’s!  (if above a 3.0) o Our continuing education at UCSB, along with major and career goals. o
