Cordova’s layout download contains 1 resume document and 1 cover letter MS Word file with two extraordinarily designed columns:
The left column used to label its corresponding section next to it, and the right hand column serves as the overall body of this professional template.
A well-crafted sidebar with big inserted monograms on top of the headlines of its sections:

Your input is very much appreciated .
I wanted a format that made it easy to move information around, re-arrange, and just look good.
It is simple, versatile, and aesthetically pleasing. It also allows me to put in my career experience (which is lacking on my resume), something that I desire. The fact that it is a template does not hurt my feelings one bit, and I am sure you are aware of the importance of cover letters in your job search.
And also the way its structured puts my experience first. Which is something that has always been a problem for me. Before this, my experience listed first was in chronological order. Now, it is in a reverse chronological order.
It’s simple, it’s clean, and it’s organized. It didn’t take me long to create a version that I’m really happy with.
It is simple, clean, and structured in a way that is very appealing to the eye.
It looks clean, unique, and stands out. It’s also all on one page which is a plus if I’m applying for a creative or publishing job. Here’s my issue though.
This template is very simple, which is always a big plus. Additionally, the design is very eye-catching. This makes it easy to spot the resume in a stack of cvs, which is a big problem many of my peers/coworkers have had with previous iterations.
I’m usually told that my longer, multiple-page resumes are ATS friendly because they get pulled into the database before they are submitted. I tend to have really strong IT experience on my resume as I spend a lot of time during my internships managing technology for my department.
It’s clean! No more crazy coloring that goes “berry” funny under every word in your job description.
It’s clean! No more tiny lines showing where each company shows their name in previous careers (a huge no-no). It makes me think about what information is relevant to employers when looking at ancillary info like education or languages etcThird.
It saves me literally hundreds (if not thousands) from having to re-write each time. * My old resumes got way too many “rejected” messages in terms of rejection rate mid 90’s generation 2 printers/personal computers etc. And now that i have 3 kids. I fear they are even more filtered out than before.
It’s clean – a big thing for me is having a nice looking resume, and The template is visually appealing which draws the eye down and makes it look more pleasant to look at.
It’s easy to read, and doesn’t squeeze too many relevant details onto one page. The design is very readable, and doesn’t draw unnecessary attention. And finally, it’s easy to customize in order to better fit the details of your cv.
#1 it fits on one page unlike most that are busy as shit. #2 It saves me about 20 lines per application where before they would each be around 30 or so line to show off various things such an education level etc of mine#3 Since we’re talking customer service here.
First, it is visually appealing as all good templates should be attractive.
It’s clean, organized, and perfectly suited to the job application process.
I think the color is nice – it’s like a striping of sorts, and I think it looks nice.
And it’s allowed me to put my accomplishments and experiences front and center, saving tons of space on what is otherwise a pretty dense page. It helps avoid the common pitfall of having a “skills” section that is awkwardly worded to be a complete opposite of the text underneath it.
I think the black background makes the cv stand-out perfectly, especially when compared to other, white, bland cvs I’ve seen. the wordy first paragraph is totally unnecessary. By the end of the cv, I want them to be able to tell straight away that I’m a serious candidate for the job.
There is no column or section break in the middle as you can do with most templates I see. This makes for a clean, organized resume. the template is a simple text-only format. I like this as it gets my information down simple and straight to the point. This is the main reason I like this template.
I haven’t had to create a resume in nearly 7 years, and even then, it was only because I was hired as an intern. Through trial and error, I was able to learn the “key terms” of creating a resume for a marketing company.
Although it is unconventional (I think), most likely no one will ever know that its been modified like thats because they are all formatted similarly from Microsoft Word to begin with or were created in Photoshop after graduation anyway. And secondly, even though i have only had two jobs since graduating – certainly not extensive experience as such just trying *to be thorough*.
It:* Is very clean. * Has lots to help with keyword optimization (this is especially helpful since many jobs are looking down their scope).
It has a clean, simple look that I think will appeal to people on both sides of the screen (people on one page vs. People on 2+ pages). I tried to use action words to describe my job descriptions to make them sound more “biologically” accurate (vs. Literary).
I don’t like the previous experience section, it’s kind of a jumble of work experience, with irrelevant positions thrown in. I don’t know which section to take out, or even if I have any to take out. I would like to highlight my degree.
It’s simple.One page.It’s clean.Simple and clean designs typically beat busy, and busy designs generally beat empty resumes.It’s easy to read.The text size is adjustable, so if you need to cut down a lot of stuff to get things on the page, you can do it easier without ignoring the rest of the resume.
It looks good because it’s simple – you don’t need to look any further than its format alone in order assess whether or not your information is valid enoughto be put into an applicant tracking system (ITT). Furthermore, with no color added on top except what links out from each item within.
Crystalient has the prettiest text that I’ve seen (and the only one that I think is actually pretty). the template is visually appealing. Third, it is relatively easy to navigate. Fourth, and perhaps most importantly, it allows me to include a cover letter.
It is interactive – you can click on any of the headings and get a pop-up message with additional information. It is highly stylized – a large amount of work went into creating the design of this cv and I like it a lot.
I personally feel a big problem with many people using a bland black and white “standard” design. I went with a “chess” color scheme (no squares or other elements), which I think looks great. Additionally, I made the text white to help with readability in printing, and to help hide distracting visual noise.
I like that it’s black and white, which I think helps me stand out among other resumes. since I’m still a student, it’s very concise. Third, it has a nice border that gives it that “final touch”.
Firstly it looks nicer on all computer monitors regardless if they are high-def or not (smilies included). Secondly because everything is neatly lined up making retyping very easy.
It is a functional resume, which is different from a traditional functional/design resume. I am guessing, as I am a non-UX designer, having a functional resume may hold more appeal for recruiters who are looking for a non-business oriented professional.
I’m a big fan of using a classic template in order to differentiate myself from other candidates. With a little bit of color and a emphasis on visuals, I think it helps to make my resume stand out.
Since it is a docx file, I can fit more information on each line without it being too long and looking cramped.
The template is visually appealing, It gets the job you put your mind to across the page, It allows you to fit ** ALL your job experience ** into 1 page, and It allows you to focus your experience & achievements/duties to a page.
It’s a lot easier to parse than the old format. Since it’s a lot easier to read, it allows me to talk about my experiences more effectively. And lastly, it makes my languages/qualifications stand out, which in my opinion is a good thing.
It’s so clean It’s super easy to read It saves me from having to write a cover letter for every single position I apply to. It allows me to adjust the position of the header to whatever job I’m applying for, and still come up with a neat template.
I have seen some very stylish resumes with this template, and it is so much easier to read (for the most part). I am also partial to the way the word “focused” is incorporated into the word “managed. ” It just feels so right. Lastly, I do not like the way the phrase “paid IT support” is written.
I know that it’s probably not very good, in terms of actual content, layout, etc. I just wanted to show that I’ve not just slapped this together. The reason why I’ve included the hyperlinks is because I want prospective employers to be able to see what exactly I do, i. E. My main job functions.
It’s aesthetically pleasing, i. It doesn’t look like many cv designs I’d seen before. It’s a single page, which is great if I’m handing out a CV for example, where I might not have a lot of space to make it worth while.
It is open-source, meaning I can edit it and make it better. It is wordable. Because I am not a native speaker, my resume seems dull and hard to read. Having a word-wide search function helps me to see if my resume is making contact with keywords.
First and most importantly, it looks very much cleaner than my last one, which was just a mess of many things all over the place. I think this one looks much more professional, and it also makes me think that I’m getting interviews because of the layout itself, when I’m not doing anything to deserve it.
