Submitted by user DinahP, long time recruiter for IT placement cloudgrad has quickly become one of the more popular choice for jobs requiring functional AND core-functional formatting due to its clever section placement within the body.

Quick Tips.

  1. Your opening statement should be one of the first things someone reads when they pick up your resume. Since your this is basically a headline at the top of your profile, it is one of the first things a potential employer will read. If your headline is impressive and provides useful information about you, consider using a title that reflects the position you are applying for.
  2. For example, if you are applying for a copywriter position, you might use a headline such as Copywriter.” If you are applying for a marketing director position, you might use a headline such as “Marketing director.”
  3. You can use this section to highlight your experience and skill set as they relate to the role youƒ??re applying for. Include previous positions youƒ??ve held, the company youƒ??ve worked for, your job title, years of employment, and any notable achievements. If youƒ??re applying for a role in a company, you can also include any leadership roles youƒ??ve held, such as a deputy director or president.
  4. You might have wondered whether you should use an objective statement or a career summary. Both options are acceptable and it will depend on your experience, career goals and what you want the employer to know about you.

I personally think the font is very look-able and stands out from the rest of the page. I tried to keep the content as concise as possible, and kept a part of my academic projects on the next page to show more work experience (I have done a lot of TA and research assistant positions).

It’s a lot easier to read and doesn’t require the reader to zoom in very much. It also doesn’t require me to put in a wall of text, a common feature on a lot of cvs I’ve seen which I personally find very difficult.

Can’t complain at the price. Cool how some bullets are shown with large blocks, so I was able to drag them bigger and smaller.

The first is that I know I won’t have to edit it much if I stick with this format. It gives me everything I need with the exception of the small personal statement at the top and a bit more around the skills section.

My old resume was just a wall of text, which most likely discouraged an employer from looking at it. Since I plan on going into Student Development, it is likely they will be looking at Student Development courses, rather than my work experience, which is unfortunate.

A lot of resumes look like they’ve been designed in a “what’s-its-name” layout. This makes it difficult to read and understand quickly.

I personally feel that it’s very clean and simple, and it’s direct. I think it’s the most professional looking resume you can have and still be creative. It’s a big statement because it’s not flashy or over the top. It does the job of saying “I am committed to the work”.

I like how instead of having several columns with text in all directions like most traditional layouts, this one lets you just paste your information into one column as if its already there.

I hope this post is appropiate. I’m an IT engineering student looking for a job in automotive engineering (as it was suggested by a friend). I’m looking for any advice on the content, I know it can be a little dense.

It saves me 2400+ characters to add more info! Plus it looks professional :p with fancy formatting.

Editing in MS Word is head and shoulders above other file types. The grid system is 100 times easier than resume builders – which all use columns & lines either horizonal or vertically – those are a pain to change designs.

The info is easily parsed, there’s a single font, and it looks great on a pdf. I’m particularly pleased with the work history section, it’s been a while since I’ve delved into a work history section (was focusing on school and barely had any workplace experience).

The first is that I know it’s a lot easier for a recruiter to read than my previous one, and that’s totally fine. The second reason is that it matches the job I’m currently pursuing which is (from what I hear) a very difficult and vague job title.
