You’ve probably seen them on Pinterest or Etsy: beautiful resume templates with splashy colors and designs that look waaaay better than your black-and-white resume slapped with Times New Roman.
If you Google a bit, you’ll even find custom resume designers with rave reviews virtually promising you a job—if you spend up to three hundred dollars on one first.
The logic is that cool infographics and colors will make you stand out from gazillions of other traditional resumes.
Yes, they’re beautiful. But they will ruin your job search.
