A green shaded word resume with an identical cover letter for jobseekers wanting to make a unique first impression in comparison to those submitting plain jane resumes with zero coloring and no tables. That’s because the library has thousands of circular interests pictures ready for your choosing.
- Comes with an alternative version with jade colored header without a sidebar.
- Big letters for your full name enclosed within rectangular 2.5 pt thick width style compounded lines, but with enough text space to showcase a profession or focal point inside of the shape.
- Every component is easy to change. There are two docx files in each of the theme versions that are in the download.
- The first thing you should do before sending your resume is to carefully read the job posting for any instructions on how the employer would like you to apply. If the job description asks you to email a resume, the employer may also include information about the email address you should send to, the city and state in which to send it to and other related details.
- Next, review your resume to ensure it’s visually appealing and well-formatted. For instance, check for headings, spacing, alignment and spelling. Try to avoid using complicated language and complicated formatting, and stick with simple and easy to understand fonts. Your resume should be around one page in length.
- Definitely review your resume for grammar, spelling and accuracy before submitting it. If you’re submitting your resume online, you can also type a PDF version of your resume to ensure the resume looks as intended before submitting.
- Employers are looking for candidates who have similar skills and experiences to the ones they’re looking for. Therefore, your resume should be tailored to the job you’re applying to, incorporating the skills and information from the job posting. This will show you’re qualified and show your interest in the role.
- Finally, remember that your resume is an advertisement for yourself and the company you’re applying to. The goal of your resume is to show the hiring manager that you’re a great candidate for the role you’re applying to. Therefore, your resume should be positive and focused on your future. If you’re currently employed, you can include that to catch the hiring manager’s attention.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I know it’s not the *only* thing that will get you hired, but it’s a damn good bet. 99% of the sites that ask for the resume don’t even have a search function. If you’re using a crappy resume template with a bunch of random bullet points, it’s going to get trashed before the recruiters even see it.
It’s simple, it’s clean, and it’s effective. Thousands of people have tried to copy this template and failed.
I’ve had ZERO luck with the old cv. I work for an ISP in the US and we have to submit our online forms to get approved for service and then a real person has to call us to tell us we are approved. The call itself is slow and the customer service that person has is terrible.
I had to adjust it to fit on one page, but it’s so much better than the first one. I’m still on the hunt for a job, but I’m hoping this will help me stand out a little more. Thanks for all the help guys.
I have been told by so many people that I should use a graphic design as a resume template. That is what I have used, and it has looked great. But, I have also been told that I should stick to a simple template, because ATS systems will not be able to read it. Well, I found a great looking resume that was created in Photoshop.
I applied for 30 jobs with this resume, 7 got back to me and 7 got rejected. It’s not that I’m ungrateful for all the help I’ve received, I know I could have done better. It’s that this particular template is so much better than the dozens of others I’ve tried, and it’s so simple to put together. I wish more people would try this out.
I have applied for so many jobs with old, messy resumes that did not even allow me to submit a good application.
It is simple. It is **not** too simple. Countless resumes are lost to the digital abyss because they are too fancy with their formatting. This is direct and clean. It is consistent. This is a resume that a recruiter or hiring manager can glance at and know what position you are applying for right away.
I am telling you from the bottom of my heart, it is the greatest decision anyone could possibly make. I am telling you from personal experience, it has changed my life. I am telling you from a very strategic and careful standpoint, it has set me up for success.
It is simple. Customers have short attention spans. Simpler is better. Stick to one page. 2. It is easy to read. No more bullet points. Bullets are good for sales jobs, not resumes. 3. It is professional. This is a resume you would send to a business. It is not a college student resume.
