Need to reformat a resume ASAP in word, but don’t want to go too far with a zillion colors? Draco is a top-notch template known for it’s effortless, fast customization. Some claim to paste all of their information in just seconds, which – exaggerating or not – isn’t too shabby.
You can personalize the middle column of the resume body by plugging in your old job positions, followed by a concise description of what your responsibilities were for a typical working day while employed there.
Now the right column uses graphs to represent your strengths… all placed horizontally and ready to be labeled ƒ?? in it’s monochromatic style, it uses black headings against a white backdrop, and no borders lining the columns.
Adjust the working dates and their calendar icons. Resize the sheer black lettering and add a pinstripes footer to the page. Finish it off by adding a tint to the page number box at the top of the page, and try as many edits as you can quickly.

I’m 40 years old and have been doing this stuff since the 70s. I worked in a corporation and was later a contractor for a few years. When I went from contractor to employee I got a new job title, received a pay raise, and all the benefits that come with that. I’ve now been with this company for 12 years. Every decision I’ve ever made has been because someone else made it for me. Here’s how it works.
I started with just a black and white, no font, no color, no design, no nothing. I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t get any calls, and I knew it had to be my resume. So I decided to add a little bit of color and make it look like what everyone else was doing.
I have always been a person who likes to layout his resume to optimize readability and I have gone through several iterations of my resume with this in mind. As I am sure you will see from my resume, I have gone through several changes and the layout that I have is the best one I have created.
It’s simple, easy to browse, and gets the information needed to be searched, seen, and tracked. Using a resume like this gets you hired! Best of luck!
In just a few days I went from not knowing how to write a resume to having one that has gotten me two job interviews in the first week! I couldn’t be more happy with my decision to go with this template.
I’m 40 years old and about to finally graduate with my BS. I’ve been a homemaker for 15 years and I’m beyond ready to get out of the house! I’ve decided to change my career path and I want to go for project management. I want to get my foot in the door in project management positions. I’ve applied for several different positions within the company I work for. I’ve been turned down for a few positions.
#1 – It is easy to understand. #2 – It is professional, yet creative. #3 – It stands out from other resumes out there. #4 – It is still simple, yet fancy at the same time. #5 – It is still under a page long.
Get your references and phone number ready. I can tell you it’s a pain in the ass to get hold of your references and phone number. You have to keep track of who you have contacted and when. Write your resume. This is where the magic happens. I am here to approve of your resume and help you put it into shape.
I had applied for 100+ jobs without any luck. Not even an interview. The only company I was able to get a phone interview with was with Paycom Russia. They had some open positions and I was able to get in front of the boss and his team for just the 2nd time. They made the decision to go with a candidate who had better experience, interpersonal skills, a better written resume and more marketable qualities.
