Basic Fundamentals….Using Templates Instead of Resume Builders

When it comes to most resume builders, don’t even bother. These templates allow you to fill in blanks with relevant information, offering a complete and accurate template. For example, Indeed provides a series of templates that you can personalize to your industry and the expectations of your potential employer. You’ll want to modify your resume to emphasize you’re a team player if the job description specifically mentions looking for one. If the job description doesn’t explicitly state they want a team player, consider doing more research into the job and see if they’re likely to want a team player anyway. Some jobs, such as a software developer or project manager, are often done in teams even if the job description doesn’t say it. If your search reveals that the job duties are done in a team environment, it will likely be beneficial to list team player skills on your resume.

To best highlight your skills as a team player, you should use specific examples. Where you can, mention other teams you have been a part of or mention accomplishments you’ve achieved as a member of a team. You’ll have a much stronger resume if you can show you’re a team player rather than just saying it.

When you’re listing your skills on your resume, be sure to include anything that relates to working within a team. Being a good team member is an important skill, so it deserves to be included with other abilities you’ve learned over the years. If you’re applying for a job that emphasizes the importance of teamwork, be sure to include it in your resume.

Being a good team member means you help your team to succeed by providing contributions of varying sizes and strengths. When listing your team player skills, you should include anything that would be beneficial to doing so by providing a helping hand to your team. It’s also important to include as much relevant experience as possible. While you don’t need a long list of jobs, include your work experience in reverse chronological order and include the names of the companies for which you’ve previously worked, along with the years you worked in each position.

If you’re applying for a job that uses a functional resume, such as a graphic designer, you can include a separate section that highlights your design skills. You can also include a separate section for your hobbies and interests, such as photography or pottery. You can also include a section for certifications and additional information such as publications.

While you don’t need a formal degree to earn a position as a graphic designer, you will need to have some formal training to become proficient in the field. Most employers require a two-year degree in a relevant field, such as computer science or software engineering. If you want to design for a company that doesn’t offer a degree, consider whether you can develop your skills enough on your own.

Also, if you have a limited work experience as a graphic designer, consider including a section for your portfolio. This section can include both online portfolio sites and traditional portfolios that you create at your own pace and in your own time. A traditional portfolio will contain work samples, references, and other content that you can include in your resume.


A portfolio is a way of showcasing your work to potential employers, clients or other stakeholders. It is a way to showcase your work to the hiring manager or other stakeholders without having to submit a resume or other such traditional document. Instead, you can include links to both your website and a showcase version for easy access. Many websites have showcases for their portfolio content, and you can also include mentions of these sites in your resume.

You should include your contact information on your resume for obvious reasons. Include your name, email address and phone number. If you have a professional networking platform or website that has a gallery or portfolio of your work, include the link.
