Clip art, regardless of your industry, should be strictly avoided at all costs. Seriously, my colleagues and I have a good laugh when we get these types of resumes, and seeing as it is 2013, clip art should not be anywhere near your professional document regardless of your industry. Write that down. You want to get attention with your resume, just not that kind!
After all, your resume serves as your first impression when being viewed by the hiring manager in the Human Resources department. It could either make you stand out from the other applicants or, fail to create a favorable impression altogether and land in the garbage bin. You need to remember that any hiring manager work against time, and would only spend around 40 to 50 seconds in scanning your resume. Having some eye catching information written may very well land you on their short list.
If you dont have the exact keywords and phrases that the automated system is looking for, your application will fail. It is that simple. For an example, I will assume most everyone has done a Google search before. In the Google search window, a person will type in a search term and Google will deliver a list of possible sites that relate to the term that you typed in. Although the algorithms are different, the automated applicant tracking systems have, at their heart, the very same mechanisms and return to the employers agent, the HR person or company recruiter, a list of applications that have all of the specific keywords and phrases that they are looking for.
In resume terms the ability and resource to quickly tailor your resume information to suit whatever role you want to apply for successfully.
