A fantastic modern outline ideal for long resumes in either chronological or functional formats. Named Coho, it also comes with various icons for your interest, reference, social, skill sets and awards sections too.
Since all of the colors used were kept to a minimum when it was designed, it makes this template much easier to skim right to your core achievements in less than six seconds. This means employers won’t miss out on any of that good stuff you’ve got in store for them.
There are a ton of subtle additions that make this one of our most sought out for designs. Take the horizontal line placement above, for example. Making simple use of word’s lines and shapes, the sidebar is lightly decorated with adjustable proficiency bars. Pretty clever right?
Switch to different awards by swapping out academic for employee achievements.

I have always been told that a resume should be written in a matter that puts the focus on the accomplishments and responsibilities of the job. I like this style of writing because it gets right to the point and makes an impact. I also like that it is chronological and functional. Functional because it reflects my work history and it is easy to read and follow.
I’m so grateful that this resource exists! The only problem is that I’ve applied to 100+ jobs now, mostly consulting and investment banking (I’m based in NYC, so that’s the main industry we’re targeting). I’ve only had 1 company respond with an interview (which I didn’t get), and the rest either ghost me or send me rejection emails.
It’s clean. Simple. Efficient. It doesn’t overwhelm. It’s easy to follow. My old resume was long and had a lot of text. That was a bad idea, IMO, because it made me look less professional and it made me look like a flake. That’s not what I’m about.
It is very easy to read. It is professional, yet fun to look at. It is easy to categorize. It is a great conversation starter. It is guaranteed to get you hired!
I had to change some of the defaults in Word to make it work with all the companies I wanted to apply to, but once I had that sorted I was able to submit the applications quickly and easily. The only thing I didn’t have on my original template was the “Profile” section. That was added on my own. I also decided to try using a different format. I didn’t want to do a chronological resume, I wanted to show my growth at each company.
It landed me an entry level job in the quickest possible time. I’m not saying this because I’m bragging or anything. It’s just how it was. The only thing I would say is that it would have been better if I used a fancier template, but I’m not complaining.I’m just saying that this particular template had such amazing results because it allowed me to showcase the information in such a simple manner.
I’m not saying it was the only thing I did right, but it was a huge improvement over my old cv, and it definitely made my resume stand out from everyone else.
It made me feel like I was able to express all of my past experience and help myself to stand out. I am a hard worker, I excel in team environments, and I am confident in my ability to perform. I am looking to get into a career in healthcare, preferably management, but I am also open to sales and marketing if that is more appropriate.
It’s simple. You don’t need a college degree to get a job. There. Done. It’s modern. Up until now, we’ve all been dressing up our resumes with buttons and pops and borders and fluff. This template makes no assumptions about your experience. It simply provides the information you’re looking to get across in a very easy to read format.
I had to explain everything in the most concise way in the cover letter. That alone saved me 30 minutes over the next person. Without that, I would have been there for at least 2 more hours. I’m not saying this because I got the job, but it’s because I had to follow a template to a T. I will never go back to a different template. Not even for a high-paying, XYZ kind of job.
