Resume expert Sarah Richardson notices a disturbing trend in resumes lately: images. "People seem to think they need to dress up their resumes with little computer icons or corporate logos, but adding art only muddies up the page," Richardson says. Instead of adding art, Richardson recommends the use of clean margins and white space to create a clear visual message. "You want your resume to be as clean as possible," she says. "Anything that takes away from that should be avoided."
