What your resume should look like in 2020?

Keep It Simple Unless you’re applying for a design role, a clean, simple layout is best. Use clear section headings and make them stand out with bold type, capital letters, and/or a different color. Make sure there’s plenty of white space—an overstuffed resume is hard to read.

What is an F pattern resume?

The F-Pattern suggests that visually, content at the top and left side of the resume will most likely be read first (as suggested by the “F”), especially in a first-round review in which your CV may only get a few seconds of a recruiter’s time. That’s how users, including recruiters, read text-heavy content.

What is the F pattern?

The F-Pattern is a simple layout designed to guide a user’s eye to information that you want them to see based on engrained human behavior. In this case, the F-pattern is rooted in the way we read — left to right.

Where does the eye look first on a page?

The top-left corner gets the attention first. When users land on your site, their eye path starts from the upper-left corner and moves down and right from there. Similar findings came from a study by Yahoo.

How does the F shaped reading pattern help visual hierarchy?

The F-Pattern design helps you establish a visual hierarchy and an intentional flow for getting visitors to focus on specific elements. If you can get them to follow the path you want, they’ll be less likely to bounce and instead be more engaged and take action on your page.

What is the Z pattern?

The Z Pattern The Z-pattern layout is typically used on pages that are not content heavy. Its design mimics the route the human eye travels when it reads — left to right, zigzagging top to bottom: Visitors first scan from the top-left to the top-right, forming an imaginary horizontal line.

Why is the Z and F techniques effective?

Both the F and the Z-patterns are extremely well documented, and have been used by designers to great effect on pages across the web. In the absence of any other intentionally created flow, these are the patterns people’s eyes will follow. And that is extremely useful knowledge to have when putting together a page.
