It's just as bad if you oscillate the other way and showcase your graphic design talents or your excellent ability to use the design functions in Word that no one really understands. (Though, for design industries or art-related jobs, go for it, but maybe use Illustrator, not Word). Your resume isn’t your booth at the 7th grade science fair, adorned with a collaged poster to lure the judges over. It’s a professional document and should read like one -- organized, clean, and bolded/italicized/underlined minimally and consistently. Try reading your resume in under 30 seconds, the way a hiring manager would -- does all the information you want to make “pop” pop without giving you a headache? If not, you need to reformat.
