Your resume describes your career accomplishments and branding statement as a current stay at home mom, which basically means that you need to do all that is possible to make any employment gaps as little noticeable as possible.
Using carefully formatted tables with little to no graphics or borders, this monochromatic template takes a simple while effective step towards depicting powerful highlights.
Keep the layout as-is or edit it by adding in alternative headings or removing dates from your work history descriptions.
Bar charts for proficiency levels are easy to alter so you can show what you can do, how well you can do it, and anything else you’d like to say about yourself in the section.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It lets me combine all those “professional experience” bullet points into 1 sitting without ignoring important details about each individual job because they were done in short order spanning several jobs (and during college).
It saves me two pieces: one background color to show up in those nice ol’ Word monster cards (I can only imagine what that must look like) AND it allows easy side-by-side comparison by simply double clicking on an item within word.
I don’t like how bulky my old one was, and I wanted my potential employer to know that I’ve put in effort to better myself. I’m also trying to find a way to stick it out to two pages without having too much fluff, and still including relevant information.
I like how it gives a visual representation of my experience and work despite the variety of disciplines and job titles. I also like how I can now add either commit points or skill points depending on the job I am looking at- very flexible and easy to customise.
It looks so neat; it’s very minimal (no additional columns or extra spaces, just a simple two-columns layout with a title-row and a section-row in the middle); and it plays up my last job title correctly.
I wanted to pay tribute to the masters at TopResume. com. They did a wonderful job condensing everything to just two pages, and yet it still feels so packed with content.
I realized that providing a visual summary for my work experience is much more effective than condensing down my experience to the last 10 years which is what other templates do.
It’s a functional resume. I thought I might have been developing too much of a love for graphics and typography (which is coming from someone who has been writing professional resumes for years – not a designer). Functional style is simply more appealing for me when it comes to writing a resume.
It’s so different than any other resume I’ve ever seen – a lot of these layouts follow a more traditional template, and mine is all new. it’s so clean – so clean, in fact, that I worry it may be boring to look at. Third, it’s so different in content from my other resumes.
I didn’t want to put my experience from school all the way back to when I started – it would look way too clunky and just weird to me.
My old resume looked like it was waiting for me to fail so it could put me in an uncomfortable position, and look bad. This does not happen. This cv template makes you want to press forward so you know exactly what you are getting into.
First is that it allows me to write about almost anything on there – thought achievements are carefully chosen as well.
It eliminates the need to put “reference available upon request” at the end of every job section. It allows me to fit all the relevant job info (which was once a pain) onto a single page. This was especially challenging because the jobs varied so greatly in what they required.
My old resume was very boring, with very few personality qualities or experiences associated with me. This new resume is visually appealing, and kids don’t right that ugly! My previous resumes were long winded, and everyone hated them. This one is VERY concise.
It’s very clean – no more headers in text! No need to add/remove margins either.
Lazy builder killed it in google drive; didn’t want to go through five installations just yet :/. Second – “profile picture” isn’t working due face recognition.
It looks clean, simple, and stands out. It’s a little less creative than the one I had previously (I think that may have had its day), and the old one kind of reminded me of a *broader version of the same template. *This new one also gave me the opportunity to REALLY pack in as much info as I could.
It’s very easy to manipulate in Photoshop or Lightroom after creating your CV without having export them as individual pdfs every time you want an editable version.
I think the color of the title is nice, and the whole “Résumé” part looks good (even if I don’t have a lot of experience, I feel like I should have some kind of statement). I think the whole “Relevant Coursework” section under the university is good.
It’s clean, uncluttered, and allows me to really emphasize the results I got during my internship. It also helps that it doesn’t make me look like a huge slacker.
It’s approach is simple yet effective: no columns!, just standard (i think) 2-3 line text blocks on top with some minor color variations to give off that “interior designer” vibe you mention.
I don’t like the traditional app experience type of template. They all seem the same, and I prefer something unique. Plus, I have read that HR people don’t like seeing a lot of the same things over and over. So, I’m sort of confused on why this one seems to be so popular.
It’s very clean, your job descriptions are clear and concise, and it’s optimized for ATS. I’ve been lurking on here for a while, and have found some templates really interesting.
I got rid of the “Human Resources” and “Training” sections, as they were two of my least favorite sections. I put most of my experience in the Experience section – took out a lot of irrelevant information and left a lot of white space. I made my education section a bit more personal by talking about my classes and my grades.
I like how the template uses a left-justified title with bold and italicized classified information. It’s clean. This cv fits perfectly on one page with a basic layout.
My old resume was just a series of pretty photos and word lists, with VERY little information other than the fact I was a cook. The new resume is a sleek, simple design that stands out.
