For years I have been using a resume with unique font and unique color palette (very toned down, but different then standard black). I used to believe that my resume should stand out as much as possible (within reason, of course). However recently few people pointed out that my resume should be as simple as possible - just regular white paper with black font text. They said that HR usually sees those fancy resumes as style over substance and are more suspicious towards those candidates (which results in being rejected more often). Or do those standard ones signal that candidate is too lazy to make little extra effort?
What is the current trend? Does it really matter that much?
