I’ve always said that coloring books are great tools for teaching things and imparting knowledge (both children AND adults), but this takes it to the next level. You would assume that the content of your resume would be the most important thing, but once you start thinking about a manager whose job it is to scan hundreds of resumes on a daily basis, it actually make sense to focus more on the appearance. I’m definitely going to have to try this out!
