The days of sitting in front of a computer for hours designing your resume in word are over. In fact, if you’re an operations manager and you’re still spending that kind of time, you’re wasting precious time better used elsewhere. Instead you need a CV that exemplifies both knowledge and leadership experience.
Plywallƒ??s got the perfect minimalist look right here, with a gray header for your name and a white background to give prominence to your essentials.
Personalize its header by double-clicking inside the header or footer area and dropping some text of your own into its place.
You can also throw in quantifiable results and other accomplishments to accompany the different sections. Keep things clean and simple by choosing from a large pack of icons, fonts, and more.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I had to change some parts to make it fit on one page. I am really proud of how this template looks, don’t get me wrong. I used the “favorite” link at the top of the post. You can then edit the resume in. I didn’t want people to have to go hunting for the template all over the internet.
Get your job history in reverse chronological order. This will allow you to hide all the gaps that are naturally occurring from jobs that you had to take in to get your feet wet. If you’ve had several jobs, focus on the higher level position that you had. This will allow you to show more engagement and growth from the get-go.
I didn’t have an interest list to apply for, I didn’t have a particular job opening I was going for, and I didn’t know a thing about the industry I was going for. It was the best of both worlds, and this template has allowed me to thrive. It’s a fairly simple format, and anyone can make one, but it’s a good idea to make one before sending out applications.
Stands out – Without being tacky or over the top. The template makes it easy to fit in all of the work experience I’ve done in the past. So many of us have kept a lot of work experience on old resumes due to the nature of the job.
I had to update my resume for the n-th time since I started my job hunt with a 2 year gap in my resume history. That’s quite a track record I’m setting myself. Every time I try to condense my resume history, it all just seems to come back to a “problem” with my last name. It’s a weird n-word problem that nobody has ever solved.
Now I know exactly what I want my resume to look like from top to bottom EXACTLY LIKE THIS. I landed my dream job and I’m super excited about it. I think using a minimalistic kind of outline like this allowed me to fit all the important information onto one page vs. the traditional two.
