    Thanks for the Link Love!

    You have me wondering what type of program you went through? Was it print / web /advertising based?

    I am finding that depending on what type of program you went through opinions are widely varied, and this could be why so many people have different views on the subject.

    Either way, make sure your content is spot on and has been proofread numerous times.

    I never use any design elements in my resume, just standard Times New Roman for everything–I let my portfolio do the talking.
