The appearance of your resume is determined by the format or template you choose, your fonts, the color of the text, and the page's layout. It's important that your resume has a consistent look, so stick with a maximum of one or two fonts, for example.
The content and formatting of your resume's various sections should be similarly consistent. In other words, each job in your experience section should be laid out in the same way. Each should contain the job title, company name, city and state, number of years worked, and detail the experience gained through the role. Each listed position should organize these elements in the same order.
Unfortunately, recruiters don't have time to read every detail of every resume they come across. But if your resume is organized in a nice-looking format, they are more likely to dive deeper!
