Resumes/CV

So, I just recently had my first ever professional job interview and had to bring in a copy of my resume. I've had a resume on file for quite a while, my mom just recently redid my resume for me, but it seems way too simple for me.

What resumes do you think work best? The super simple ones or ones that have a somewhat fancy, yet non-complex layout?

I think it mostly depends on how much you are putting on it as far as information. If you have an extensive work history or heavy amounts of info to put in there on your schooling, a simple format works best, but if you lack in that department then dressing it up is a good idea. I always include all previous jobs and schools because my resume is generic and I never know what they're looking for, but because I am the worst at deciding what I want to do, I have a ton of schools and stuff to put on there so simple works best for me.

I feel that it should reflect your experiences. If you can describe your experience and expertise with few words, do so, but don't be afraid to elaborate if you have to!

from what i've heard, simple is key, especially if you don't have much experience.

Keep it simple, I'd say. I have a few big gaps in my employment and have worked a wide variety of jobs, so I have my experiences grouped by skill set, not by date. Depending on what job I'm going for, I'll move the appropriate skill sets to the top of the list.

I've only ever written a CV. These are typically for academic purposes and academic institutions usually expect a lot of specific detail about your teaching history, conference papers, publications, curatorial experience, etc. I do have a pared down very simple version if I do ever have to seek other employment, but I've yet to need it.
