Your input is very much appreciated .
I’ve always wanted to stand out from the crowd, and this seems like it does a pretty good job of it.I’m worried, though, that it may be too much and I should try to keep it at two pages.
For one thing it looks very inviting on paper – unlike alot fo people who go all fancy with templates here which always seem to end up looking like shit (not even copying from Word).
It looks very clean, is aesthetically pleasing, and is professional without being TOO serious. It’s not flashy, and that’s a good thing. It’s no Buzzfeed. I’m also hoping it’s easy to read and maintains its own identity without resortsing to over-advertising.
You see, when I was looking for a template to use, I happened to glance at a post on here, and decided that this was the one I wanted.It saves me from having to go to great lengths to anonymize my information. I want my resume to pass the automatic resume filters companies use.
Primarily being that it is so eye-catching as well:Secondly there are several specific points about hiring managers suggestions which i would like to implement in mine (not sure if they should be included at all though.
I’m not using a “fancy” template at all. It’s a simple . txt template, nice and minimalist. No graphics, just text. You can basically edit this template directly in Word, and it will look exactly the way you want it to.
I think it looks clean, without being too flashy or “flashy”. It’s readable, and doesn’t have that “exactly” the right “color” “look”. Plus it has that oh-so-important professional look.
It maximizes the space my resume occupies without sacrificing content. it makes it easy to swap out experiences on the fly. Finally, since I’m applying to entry-level positions, most of my experience is customer/client service based, and not sure if I should keep it included on the resume.
I think visually it’s very eye-catching (which was a goal of mine from being a creative in advertising). It’s simple, yet somehow still intimidating. I feel like this is a winning combination. My problem is that I have an employment gap from March 2011 to March 2015.
First off it looks so professional in color rather than black & white which is what most people do.
First off its clean – another thing that has helped me is to keep it simple in terms of designs & colors so i can focus on content (its very important when you do not have much job experience).
I think the first reason is aesthetically pleasing, since I use a sans serif font, and I also use a “clean” design as opposed to the traditional “stacked” or “stacked italic” look. I think it’s cleaner.
It saves me 2400 green words (that’s how many they are), which is exactly what i need to get on paper again.
I didn’t feel like I had enough information on most of my job descriptions. I didn’t feel like my old resume told a cohesive story.
My old resume was a mess, full of excess space and irrelevant (working in a different field) information. It’s aesthetic. It’s a pleasure to look at, and that’s important to me. It’s ability to leverage all the important work experience I have.
It gives me the opportunity to put skills slightly in alphabetical order on the left, rather than in the order described by the job title. This is an attempt to streamline my cv, and I think it works pretty well.
I didn’t know how to display my professional experience & education on a single page. So I made a two column layout to provide a good look, and two column layouts are becoming extremely popular. I think it looks pretty good for someone with my experience and qualifications.
From a design perspective, it’s very clean and modern looking, which is always a big factor for me when it comes to choosing a template. from a content perspective, it’s easy to read. I’m a big admirer of minimalist design, and this template does a great job of displaying only what’s necessary in a readable way.
I hope someone can help me point out any of the pitfalls I am going into. Reason # I’ve had trouble fitting everything on one page.
First off, it helps me fit all that awesome on one page when doing an layout. Once you download your dream CV formatted like mine (not recommended) ; then click save & upload image or file. You will get another perfect looking / creative cc =).
It:* Solves the “information too sparse” problem I was hit on in an interview and online;* Gives me a lot more space to put in certifications/education;* Meets industry standards for both formatting and spelling; and,* Many people have told me this is the template they like to use themselves.
It saves me literally tons (like *tonnes* )of time filling out **each** one normally.
I’m using my middle name as my first name for all of my resumes. Usually it’s a one-name only deal since my first name is so blatantly flashy.
It’s simple, yet effective. I think it looks great and stands out.I like that it gives results right away, instead of waiting for my fill in the blank resume to load. I think this is a good approach to keeping my faucet dry.
It’s simple because you *can’t* mess it up–there are no weird formats or extra spaces to worry about; other than that minor issue mentioned above there is absolutely nothing missing on here.
My old resume was just a wall of text from my college career center. It was an absolute mess of outdated/non-relevant work experience. I decided to devolve it into a more practical, key skills focused version.
The first being it’s so simple, something that a fresh grad can easily edit without having to wonder around in the dark. It looks clean, uncluttered, and lets the experience speak for itself.
It’s in line with modern aesthetics. I like how the design of a resume looks, and I don’t like how stuffy and stuffy they can get. It’s easy to read and scan. Again, I like this despite the design.
I didn’t know how to fit more on the page. I didn’t know a good way to emphasize my experience abroad. And finally, I wanted my experience to seem as large as possible. So I ended up making it like a advertisement for myself. I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not.
First off, I think it looks very clean and contemporary. It doesn’t scream business, it screams you’re trying to be sophisticated. I think the list of company is very important. I think it’s very relevant to show that I have dealt with some big name companies and been involved with media that perhaps wouldn’t otherwise show.
My old resume, for reference, was this big mess of 5 different resumes all with slightly different information for the same job. I think a big reason I was having such a hard time getting interviews was because my resume was an absolute wall of text.
I am completely unsure of the graphics I used (if I used the best ones out there, it would be a 0.5 page resume). I am certain that my old resume had far too many bullets and was very hard to read (I even had to turn the text gray to try to hide some of the clutter).
It’s very minimal, yet it looks professional. It’s in the classic Times New Roman style with a single color block that I want to keep as simple as possible while still seeming professional. My old resume was twice as long as this and looked like an absolute mess. It had that overly complicated block text layout which I no longer want to use.
Second, some jobs ask specifically about Web Development skills so i included small projects to showcase how much development goes on in one field(web). And lastly (what imo) most job positions dont focus too heavily o n side project experience directly related t h an IT space.
There are no columns – which many of my peers have and find confusing. the template is extremely simple, which makes it stand out right away. Finally, I like that it gives me total control over the look and feel, while allowing me to still include all the important info.
It follows the latest in a long line of simple, clean templates. Next, it’s designed to be readable and easy to read even if printed in direct colors on thin paper. And finally, it allowed me to highlight my skills without overdoing it (that’s what I’m trying to avoid!).
With this template I don’t have to worry about my wording not being perfect. With this template I don’t have to worry about my formatting looking bad. It all fits nicely on one page with no gaps. Finally, I can afford to be a little more experimental with my formatting since I’m only dealing with one page.
It’s clean and minimal, yet still stands out. It’s aesthetically pleasing without being too over the top. My previous resume didn’t call attention to itself and fell flat on me. This new one gets attention to the fact that I work well in teams, what my responsibilities are, and how they contribute to the company.
It looks great, it’s easy to skim through, and it holds a lot of information (unlike the old resume which was a jumble of headings and I struggled to understand).I feel like there is a catch. It’s “easy to skim through” – meaning that the text is small and centered on the page.
It saves me from going back/forward in time by listing previous positions at companies that are no longer around (and often times drama filled).
It is interactive; clicking on each category brings up additional details about that category. I can type out “honourable mentions” for some jobs and instantly see all the companies I was mentioned at. I think the “listen” feature is really helpful when describing jobs.
It’s very easy on the eyes, and because it’s a lot cleaner, easier to read. It beats the hell out of MS Word or Google Docs, because it’s a lot simpler. Third, it beats the crap out of the ATS, because it’s clean and simple.
There are no “Objective” sections, because I have read that they are unethically done. The design is very accessible. If you are reading a resume with a lot of information, you can always look at the top and find the type of section it’s in (e.
I hope it can be used to it some ways, since I *have* heard conflicting things on this.
This cv template has enough space to properly display all my experience relevant to the job I’m applying for. It lasted just over a page, yet allowed me to include all the experience that was relevant. This template has enough *material* on it to properly advertise myself.
It looks very clean and is aesthetically pleasing, it’s a lot easier to read when in a word doc, and it’s really nice and easy to skim through (no more tab stops and line breaks to worry about).
