When putting together a resume, making it as user friendly as possible will get it more attention in the eyes of a job recruiter, says Bill McCarthy, associate director of the Career Development Center at Binghamton University in New York. McCarthy says job seekers should think of creating their resumes the same way a top-notch Web site is designed. "Good Web sites are solidly constructed, inviting the reader to read more and linger at the site," McCarthy says. "The same holds true for a resume. It needs to communicate the skills, experience and knowledge of the applicant in a direct and easy-to-read manner."
