There are steps in which you must proceed in order to structure your resume as per planning. In the blank document start out with the margin and selection of fonts and sizes. In case of a document as formal as the resume you have few choices of fonts viz, Times New Roman, Calibri, Arial or Georgia. It is preferable to use font size 14 for headings and 12 for the information.
Pay attention to sentence constructions and grammar. Ensure that there is zero grammatical error in the document. Make an effort to find out the appropriate expressions and spellings. Here is where you make an impression. Be formal and polite in approach. Also be precise in your statements. Remember that your training and accomplishments must have credibility in form of a diploma or certificate. Your area of expertise should show through your resume. For instance, if you are a writer, your trade should reflect in your presentation without revealing that you are trying too hard. Similarly if you are an animation artist it should speak through your resume presentation without appearing gaudy. These are the minor intricacies which make your resume exceptional but if you are not sure of them you may eliminate them. They are not necessary. Your resume is adequate even without them.
Never use pictures in your resume. Exclude work experiences which are not supported by documents (eg: letters of appointment and release). Do not write your expected salary, wait for an interview call, salary negotiation can happen there. Do not put down references in your resume; they are important but furnish them on request only. There is no need to add your hobbies. Apart from the forementioned details, it is important to realise that it is good to make the look and feel of your resume attractive, it should not be overdone so as to defeat its purpose. The design should not appear unprofessional. It is okay to use colours but use them judiciously. They should not clash with the formality of the tone of your resume. Remember, prospective employers have specific criteria for selection of candidate.
