Recruitment

Are you a designer, and do you recruit staff? :)

If so, I would like to know your thoughts on resume submissions. Do you look at the fonts and identify them as a knock-off, a freebie, or a compromise? Do you base any judgement on the applicants choice of resume font? Do you even look at the leading and kerning? How would you feel if your next applicant submitted a resume entirely in default-spaced bold Verdana?

Furthermore, if you select a perfectly weighted document from the heap of resumes - are you easily disappointed when it comes to checking their portfolio? How would you feel about a resume laid out as a landscape? :)

These are just a few of my many concerns :)
