Nice reading Molly. In my experience, the color advice is quite dangerous.
I rather have a black and white resume with good typography and decent layout than one of those abominations in the name of creativity. I used to run a small design agency, and still keep a few of those, which I show to my students as an example of what you should not do, ever, in your CV to apply for a job.
But I understand what you mean about a bit of color, it really makes a difference, when used correctly.
All in all, great advices in general, thanks for writing this.
Do you have any examples of an excellent and very bad resume? That would be really fantastic to get insights 🙂
Thanks! That was quite simple one!
