Should my resume have colour?

Colours can be an expression of creativity, and indeed for a creative resume, using colours and imagery of the individual’s work may actually help with their application – but it is more about showcasing their work.

So, then, do colours make a difference?

I don’t think so.

We want to ask ourselves, is an employer going to choose one resume over the other because they liked the candidate’s use of the colour blue?

Again, I don’t think so.

Using black and white colours helps make the resume look more professional and easy to read. However, colours can be a distraction from what is written.
