- It doesn’t matter if you’re someone in need of a more detailed resume to better demonstrate your scholastic background or to hide many employment gaps, the optics of a cv is one of the most important parts because it adds personal value by highlighting your input set of quantifiable results.
- Look how well Cyrtostyle showcases a principle list of hard skill sets for a person with zero job experience…. This section is often a key part in getting you hired, potentially promoted to the position you’re aiming for, or at the very least connecting you with employers who are interested in interviewing you.
While most resume objectives are one sentence, some are longer. For example, if you are writing a resume objective for a job in sales, you might describe your experience and skill as a sales manager. If you are applying for an executive-level position in a corporation, you might describe your experience as the director of marketing.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It looks so professional, and the blue is bold and pops. It’s hard to match that blue, without being over-the-top. Plus, I don’t have to worry about my silly little resume being filed away in some gimicky file and forgotten about. It stays on the top, and is easy to reach.
It looks clean without being cluttered in any unnecessary areas; it is aesthetically pleasing yet sophisticated looking ;); there are no line breaks within paragraphs which can help avoid errors due to auto-reading software (I have seen several instances where lines get cut off entirely on these systems) . Margins: In addition they also look nice.
The first is it’s clean: –* no clutter, no “fluff”. Just facts, info, and a quick statement of what I did. The second is it’s a single pdf: one page to read, one to post.
My old resume looked like this:I knew it was too busy, too many things going on. Plus I thought the blockquote was repeatable and looked nice.
I’m still not 100% convinced it’s the greatest, though, so I’d love your thoughts. the wordy part is for the purposes of the post.
It’s clean (stupidly so), and visually appealing. It eliminates the need for a ‘profile’ section, and puts all of the important information front and center. My old resume had wording that was hard to read, and thus was ineffective. This one is fairly short, and straight to the point.
My old resume had a boring layout, and most of the information was covered in well. My old resume did not seem to attract interviewers.
There is no filler. Keeping a few letters for a professional email or name is beneficial. the design is clean. No more yard work to get the photos. Third, it is easy to read. No more “awkward” horizontal lines.Fourth, it is professional.
I think the template makes your resume stand out and pop from the rest, secondly, it’s extremely concise which allows me to fit my valuable experience in the few page timeframe.
There isn’t any filler words – just straight up text. No funny looking characters, no extra spaces, no extra lines. Just straight up text. No nonsense, no weird formatting. Just perfect for an engineer looking to perfect their resume.
Formatting! Second: it highlights relevant experience while still looking clean (at least on paper). And finally.
It’s easy to read/follow along because you can be referenced back into years simultaneously without confusion or gaps.
It’s clean – no more ugly lines following bullets or short-lived appointments/jobs that didn’t last . The typeface is easy to read (Theion Pro Bold Condensed), while still looking professional 3. ) Employment info spills over onto page #2 so it doesn’t look like there are unimportant points left off 4.
I like how it features a class experience section that is mostly filled, except for my most recent positions and a few internships, with relevant quantitative information. I like that I can sort job by “What I learned / taught” or “where I improved” rather than “when I left”.
I – always dreamed of being a design-driven person. I believe that a resume should *seem* like something that is going to draw attention. Bonus points if the resume also happens to be unique!My first thought on kinda where to put this is ‘Profile’, then followed by ‘Work Experience’.
First off all- good on you r/resumes sub as always to provide such helpful information! – It allowed me fit everything onto one page which is crucial when moving up in industry.
It takes up such little space on the page. Most resumes are HUGE, with typically over 15-20 pages.
It is visually appealing from the get-go. I am a fairly visual person, and I tend to like visually pleasing stuff. So as soon as I saw this template I was intrigued. It is very straightforward.
First off it looks nice with bold headings rather than just list items like in most templates which tend to be more cluttered looking.
First off, being a Graphic Designer, I am used to pushing all the design elements to the background and hiding details that aren’t important. Instead of hiding things – I’m trying to make them more visible. For example, I added a circle beside each project name to show more about the project.
It’s clean – something that is very important in our field! The info means things are clear to read/see while also not being too wordsy (professionals will know what i do anyways). This makes it easy find their keywords. Secondly, as someone who works remotely there IS no true way.
You’re not bound by any rules when it comes to formatting your CV; you can do whatever makes sense from an artistic point-of view!Go crazy :)**My old.
First off it looks very clean on indeed/linkedin (or google docs if you’re not into pdf views). It’s simple yet effective – another thing i really appreciate about their templates is that they are based around simplicity rather than graphic design as far im concerned*. Secondly, despite what some may say regarding linkedIn being an ‘anonymous’ setting.
I didn’t know how else to organize the information. It’s nice to see all the detail and variety in experience. I think the dark background makes the text more readable, and keeps the whole page from looking too cramped.
No more stupid lines. it makes me feel so good when I look at it. Obviously, the title says, I put my real information in their, out of shame for not sharing my full name in that case.
Appreciate the sample with a current job listed. My old resume was just a plain black and white, no design at all. It was boring and had no personality. This one has a nice simple design that works well with most computers and is easy to read. It’s also color coded for education/experience so they know where I’m coming from.
In colors! Boom-you’ve got multiple CV’s eyes at once lighting up whatever street fashion you’re walking down (which again is important since your target field can be quite diverse). Second – breaking it into columns gives way to more readable text without sacrificing visual interest on either side.
The first is aesthetics – it looks great on paper or screen and is simple enough yet has enough variety to it that it will appeal to a variety of recruiters. I like the mono-column format, and it’s easy to skim through without getting lost (I’m looking at you ATS).
The dates on left setup eliminates the need to constantly look for the best way to condense a ridiculously long resume. This Lets me put my experience in the most effective way, by setting the right mood I can tell the story of my tasks. And lastly, it lets me put my salary history + skills in an elegant way, by not making them feel like an afterthought.
It is very readable, which is important since I am adding to a non-professional area. I like that it feels a bit retro, yet modern at the same time. In addition, since I am a creative professional, I want the resume to have a little pop to it.
The first is it’s very clean. I feel like in the old one, it was a little too much. There was a lot of stuff going on and it looked like there was just too much going on. The new one I feel is very concise and tight. Also, I like the way it looks.
It’s simple and clean, nothing flashy or over the top. It’s a constant personal project. I don’t re-do it based on whatever job I’m applying for. I make sure what I have is good, and then I make sure it’s better. It displays my skills in a very concise manner.
First off it’s so clean – just like facebook “unfriendly” or you know. No graphics to speak about (already highlighted that) Also since most companies ask if your CV is in English only. This will make their life easier as far being able differentiate between what they want & need vs looking at all text thats sometimes written very poorly here& there.
First it’s in line with modern aesthetics – nothing flashy or busy, just straight tothe point.
My old one looked like shit (click to open full size)And there was some weird formatting issues that have since been fixed with your version.
I think it looks fantastic. It pops! it’s interactive like a good resume should be. You can edit it, and while you’re at it you can also add some extra pictures and icons to make it really pop. And lastly, it’s under 1 page. Yeeees! Only thing is.
Reasons that I can think of off the top of my head are:It’s a cleaner resume overall, with fewer lines to read awkwardly.It saves me literally hundreds of dollars that I would have spent formatting my resume in a traditional manner.
It looks clean, for one thing. I think it’s positively simple. This, I think, is important because ATS systems don’t consider text-heavy resumes that contain lots of color and graphics well. Lastly, I think it’s nicely laid out.
It saves me 2400px wide (I’m 5’8″) by keeping only what is necessary in each category: Education / work experience **Notes on design -** * Anything more than just explaining technical terms would be appreciated!* Also. * The education part will change depending upon which internship/co-op i get.
I tried to follow the suggestions to keep it simple while highlighting my skills (which is what I feel needs the most help).
First and foremost, I think the color scheme is eye-catching and great looking. It’s very different from the standard black and white, boring layout we’re used to. I think the column layout is very clean and minimalistic, yet impressive and grand. Third, the fact that I’m a recent college graduate hurts me.
I hope this proves to be an effective and economical solution for employers and job seekers alike. It is immediately recognizable as a HR CV. Job seekers will immediately know why they are clicking on my links to “resumes”. There are no ads, spam, or nonsense on my new template resume.
It looks very clean and is a pleasure to read (i’m sure my friend reading it will attest to that). It highlights what I am trying to get across and does it in a straightforward way.
It’s very easy to navigate. Third, it makes me feel awesome about the work I do day to day. I *flattered* you.
I hoped it would look nice as a user-friendly template, especially since I’ve been told nice things about this template by recruiters/HR people in the past.
I’ve always hated the word “Relevant Coursework” so I’ve ditched it for most of my resumes. The header with categories is nice and easy to read, the bullet points are dense with information, and the larger-format format is nice for reading on mobile.
