So...hello, GT. When I was asking these questions about 5 years ago (when I was a bit more active), I got a lot of help. So, I come back here thinking...perhaps you could help me again I have two current versions of my resume, which I'll be using to apply to typical IT type companies. Content is about the same; one is straightforward black and white listing of skills and job history, etc. The other one was modified up by an HR recruiter type, and a bit fancier (definitely eye catching). This one has a little color, a nice header, and a slightly different format. So, do I go with the fairly plain one (that got me my current job, so I know it works), or go with something that will stand out a bit and perhaps get me more noticed? I just don't want to come across as overly ostentatious, BUT considering this one was done by an HR specialist, who probably knows what is up when it comes to resumes, AND it looks awesome, maybe i'll take a chance. What say you, if you have experience hiring, or a nice wife who does?
