I agree on the focus on simplicity. Any job application through a recruitment agency will result in them editing your resume to their style. I have had truly terrible experiences with this, they don't realise that any doc manager would consider your resume to be the first example of your writing that they have seen.

In one interview I went to I noticed that the 'resume' they were referring to was actually a document containing a few paragraphs copied and pasted from my LinkedIn profile. Since then I always bring pristine copies of *my* resume with me to every interview.
