Legal Resume Design FAQs

What should I put on my resume for design?

If you’re looking to grow your career and land your dream job in graphic design, your first impression matters a lot. When a hiring manager or recruiter receives your resume, the first thing they will do is ensure you have the skills and experience listed in the job description.

When writing a resume for a design job, be sure to highlight your most important work experience. You’ll want to include that you’re fluent in common graphic design programs such as Canva, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop.*

You’ll also want to share any experience you have using graphic design to create business cards, web pages, or other projects. Be sure to include contact information in case the hiring manager wants to talk further and schedule an interview.

Should a graphic design resume be designed?

The more designed your resume is, the harder it might be to find the skills section and work experience that the recruiter is looking for. While it’s your goal to get a dream job in graphic design, the most important thing for your resume to be is legible.

To showcase just how talented you are and why you are the best choice for the role, include a link to your design portfolio or professional social media account so that the hiring manager can see your design experience at work.
