Resume Designs In the “days of yore” we typed resumes and ran down to the local office supply store with the new marvel a fax machine.

We are in an environment of companies adding work loads to existing employees rather than hiring because of the uncertainty in the business world. The lines are increasing at the unemployment office as fast as resumes are collecting on the desks of the graphic design manager’s desk. So it is out with the old and in with something unique, eye-catching and pointed to sell yourself to the employer by a fireworks’ display of who you are.
