Show them your car engine repair aptitudes with this resume highly popular among certified automotive mechanics and other professions.
- Fuage’s design is pleasing to look at, but simple at the same time. It’s full of tables so you can finish filling it up in word with your own verbiage… in just a fraction of the time, without missing a shred of info – regardless of how much content your current CV has.
- The atypical font in white and dark blue adds contrast and the clean look of the layout.
- Swap out the projects section for certifications and licenses.
- Resume objectives vary in length, but most are only one to three sentences long. Choose your words carefully and make sure to exclude anything that is not completely necessary. Try to use effective vocabulary that packs a lot of information into a small space. To maximize impact, remember to tailor your statement to your readers.
- When you have a significant amount of work experience, you should consider using a chronological resume format. Start with your most recent job or program and list your responsibilities and duties at each position, starting with your most recent role.
- If you’re applying for a job related to design, you’ll want to include experience in that field. Even jobs that aren’t directly job duties can be relevant if you used them to grow professionally or learn skills that will aid in the position you’re applying for. Include your job title, company, years you worked there and your main duties.
- As you interact with more professionals in your industry, you’ll likely find that you have more opportunities to practice your skills. Start by identifying which professionals you can regularly chat with and ask them for feedback on your communication, networking, time management or other relevant skills. Ask multiple professionals for feedback and you may find that you have a lot of helpful tips and suggestions for improvement.
- You can also ask professionals in your field of interest to mentor you on a weekly or monthly basis. If you’re interested in a particular hobby or sport, you can ask a mentor in that area to review your skills and help you improve.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It’s simple, it’s clean, and it’s effective. 99% of resumes out there are just a bunch of buzzwords that you’ll likely use to line your own pockets. This template does away with all of that. It’s simple, it’s to the point, and it’s incredibly effective.
I was able to fit all the important information on the first page (assuming I used a single page). I was also able to fit all the necessary information (the technical stuff and keywords) on the first page. The combination of those two things led to my success rate skyrocketing. The first recruiter I sent this resume to got back to me with an interview offer!
It saves you tons of time. Every. Single. One. Using a resume template that is designed specifically to help you land a job quickly is THE MOST time consuming process you can go through. And most people quit before they even get started because they’re too impatient.
I feel like it’s a lot more professional than my old cv, and easier to read, too. It took me a while because I’m not good with paints and pencils, and I’m a perfectionist, so I really focused on getting the layout right first. I got it down to one page, and it’s just two columns.
Listing salary history looks minimal, yet still impressive. It’s aesthetically pleasing, and it’s a good size (it fits on one page without encroaching on the next page). It was originally written for a more business-oriented resume, and since I’ve changed my plans a bit, I thought it would be a good change.
I got hired on the spot. The only thing I needed was an objective/summary. So I went to work and created the following resume. I then applied for a director level position and was hired without submitting a formal resume.
It looks clean, and still has a little color to it. My old resume was pointillistic and looked like a child did the coloring for their art projects.
I like how it’s organized – it’s not just a big laundry list of jobs. I like that it’s explained in simple terms. Finally, I like that it doesn’t look like a list of things I’ve done – instead, it looks like I’ve done a lot.
I had to make the decision between a functional resume and a traditional resume. I am now unemployed and searching for a job. I sincerely believe that if I had gone with a traditional resume people would have laughed at me. But I know that I made the right choice. I hope that shows.
It allowed me to fit all the information on one page without it looking cramped. I didn’t have to go into as much depth as I would have liked because it was already explained to me in the interview. That is why I mention my interview and my subsequent improvement with the resume. I want you to understand exactly what I went through before judging my own performance.
