Add custom effects/formatting to my resume (to showcase my skills)
Every so often I hear suggestions like "print your resume on bright yellow paper to help it get noticed" (assuming you are giving someone hard copies of your resume). Or, like in "Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters [X].0", they suggest putting quotes from your references and logos from previous employers on your resume. But every now and then hear just the opposite, that all these little gimmicks just annoy recruiters, and they'd rather just get a traditionally-formatted resume. So the question is ...
Do creatively-formatted resumes get noticed (in a good-way), or do they annoy recruiters?
