Slightly tinted backdrops and grids naturally take a methodical approach, and this sample CV named Elemong incorporates a barcode into a visually stunning design.
Formal enough for professional workplaces, baby blue accents soften the layout… engaging the reader more and more, paragraph after paragraph.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It’s very clean visual format (no more pages full from years ago!). It would serve as an example to other job seekers or hiring managers trying “out”of their usual formats. – Because many jobs posts want qualifications in writing is no longer necessary!THanks so much !!!I wish everyone here was half way decent.
It’s exactly as described by its title: A clean visual narrative that is simple yet refined.
My old resume was, I guess, just kinda me. An old, boring, and VERY unprofessional resume.
Number 1, I LOVE that I don’t have a long, drab resume. I feel like my old one was a bit too long, even though it wasn’t an exact length (I always thought it looked like I was trying to hide something).
Since it is a template, I can change any and everything to fit my needs depending on the jobs I am applying for. Since I am still in school I can not get any more experience (job or internship).
* Efficiently fills one page;)* Doesn’t require me to explain/repeat myself many times in an interview (I’m comfortable enough saying whatever question comes up whenever – excellent communicator already!);. * Has lots as well-organized thumbnails per role with accompanying bullets showing versioning if needed (“More Than Experience,” “Prior Company History”).
It was hard to make out what I was trying to say, and it didn’t tell much about me. The new resume is very visually appealing, and breaks up the black and white blocks of text into bites. It’s easier to read, and creates a very friendly and personable tone.
It saves me 2400+ characters, it is simple and clean, and it looks great. Also the bullet points feel way more impactful and important than the old one which just had bullet points of “DATABASES”.
My old resume was just a plain old word document with awkward formatting that seemed like it was meant for printing. This new resume is very clean and simple, using a dark grey color scheme that I think is modern and stands out nicely. It also uses a fixed size font, which I’m told is a big factor for ATS systems.
My old resume looked like a child’s, like someone had taken a nanny out of a Disney movie and put her inside a Dr. Seuss book. This new resume, I feel, has a grown up, adult feel to it. It isn’t until you see the original Dr.
I noticed that for every job application I do there is a slight pause that makes me think, “Oh, they are going to ask about my gap year, or my teaching assistant job, or my odd-even traffic ticket.” I think it looks like I pretty much cleared all those questions.
It’s very clean: no more tabbing (which is frowned upon) since each job position has its own section.
It highlights what will be highlighted in most resumes: education + experience = (pretty much) certifications It saves you from having to put your CV out into an easily searchable database like Indeed or LinkedIn Thirdly if all went well by that point.
My resume used to be pretty bland to me, with very little personality behind the bland text. The design makes my resume stand-out, and it’s a lot easier to read/scan, which is always a plus. The design is also interactive – clicking on any of the check boxes will animate the text to show you what it would look like in code.
It’s very clean, yet impressive. Also, it’s very positively received. I’ve received a few calls asking for interviews based on this resume alone. The biggest reason I like this template is because it does *not* look “user friendly”. No random stuff on the screen. No extra spaces.
It looks so clean and simple, yet still eye catching. It’s a matter of me being overwhelmed though, and I feel like it could look even better if I was a bit more attentive to details.
It looks so professional, it’s hard to do this kind of thing with a resume that is exciting and nothing like other people’s designs. It’s also a lot more efficient because you don’t need to worry about filling up your valuable space with junk information that does no matter and can be easily overlooked.
My old resume looked like an afterthought. It was a mess, and there were a couple things that wouldn’t make sense to me whatsoever. By using a basic 2×2 table to group my sections, I was able to put everything I needed on one page, without making the resume too long or too cramped.
I want to be able to add on to this cv any time I want and not have to worry about updating it everytime I apply for a job. Also, I want to be able to align the groupings of my professional experience and my education to the right.
It’s beautiful! Secondly (and more importantly) It would allow me to focus on actually giving potential employers what they WANTED before wasting any further time in an interview process that currently feels like throwing pebbles into Niagara Falls.
It looks so neat in comparison to all the others, and it’s low stress to look at.My first reason for liking this template is the ability to create different headers for different job titles.
It saves me 2400+ characters to trim down some paragraphs as well give all information about each experience/offense taken in context so that is what i have done.
I like how the side margins are a bit more relaxed, leaving the main part of the page to look clean and undisguised. I’m also pretty happy with the way the text looks, and how each of the sections is designed with typography and design.The problem I have is trying to describe my experiences.
I don’t like the traditional cv designs with headings and text. I feel that it gets quickly lost to the page’s margins and to the eye.
It’s formatted in a way that is easy for me to read/parse. It beats the hell out of trying to word-by-word articulate everything on my resume.
First off (and it’s kind-of complicated), when you apply to any organization in Spain, including hospitals or schools:Your CV is analyzed by an computer algorithm.
My old one was just blue text on white paper with no designs or colors to it whatsoever (insurance).
It saves me from having to add unnecessary, ugly bullets to my old resume. this new template does a great job of removing white space between words, which helps to reduce them from becoming covered in bullet points. Last, I don’t have to worry about my font or spacing being too small or large. All of which makes this new template the real deal.
There’s the simple fact that the template is minimalist in design. No huge, obnoxious headers or artworks messing up the otherwise clean look. It’s simple, clean, and easy to read. The template enables me to fit more of my job experience on one page.
I think the template is beautiful. It’s minimal, and stands out. It’s not just a boring black and white document that says nothing. This is a resume I could easily send to a potential employer, and it wouldn’t make me stand out among others.
It saves me 2400+ characters to add more info! Plus it’s extremely minimal with respect tp formatting (i was told by an advisor i should go full borders or text boxes because recruiters skimming profiles will get confused).
It’s visually appealing. Everyone says that a resume should be simple and clean, and this one is.
It is functional – all the info is relevant to the job I am applying for, so it should be easy to find what’s relevant. It is a ton less wordy than my previous resumes – all the text is the same size, so it should be easier to read.
I didn’t know I would’ve liked the traditional blank space on the top. I like that it’s a functional resume; you don’t have to read it as a chronological one.
I didn’t know how to write a cv that doesn’t talk about myself. I am aiming for a management position. In addition, I want to use a formatting that is visually appealing. And last, I think this cv could use some improvements on layout (the bullet points for example).
Number one, it’s a clean look, something that isn’t ,000,000 plus. I think it’s clean because I’ve been using a lot of ATS on the jobs I’ve applied for and the more typical looking resumes don’t pass the tests. It doesn’t look “unprofessional”.
It’s beautiful + sort of interactive. Like, you can make the text bigger, make the margins wider, add photos, and choose from 3 different fonts.
My information is easily accessible. My job titles are more specific and relevant than the average resume. It’s 1 page. #5 – It’s a word-of-mouth thing.
While a single page is ideal for a typical resume, getting a two page resume to fit on one page is pretty common. **a lot of the standard templates tend to pigeonhole people into a single industry**, requiring them to only list projects pertaining to that industry.
I haven’t had to make a resume in a long time, and I want to keep this kind of information private from my employer. I don’t want it getting into a big pile of other resumes/links to my LinkedIn profile.
It’s extremely easy to read/follow / scan. since most of the text is small, readable, and aligned nicely, it creates a very uniform feel throughout the page. Third, since I typically work in journalism, I thought it would be a good opportunity to mix things up a bit.
I don’t like that it’s in bulleted points like the original. I like that it’s a bit more text-heavy, and doesn’t have as much white space as the original. In addition, I like that I have a career summary section, rather than a experience section.
Uncluttered templates like this will help people focus in on the most important information (in my case, my strengths and accomplishments).
I like how it looks, with the side margins and all. I also like how it’s a single page, filled with achievements and not general job duties. It also makes it very easy to fit every last bit of content without leaving any empty space.
My old resume looked like mine is based on the “traditional” template of two columns, images and text. My headings were just lists of buzzwords that were meant to be skimmed.
I think it looks nice and the company logos are a nice touch. Every time I open the file in Adobe InDesign (which is what I do most, style and margin/fill issues in word) I get a nice little preview of how it will look like on a pdf.
I think it looks nice:I think it’s very simple, yet vibrant. Thirdly, I think it’s a very “retail” look, which I prefer.
My old resume had a boring layout, and used much Word content, which was a pain to work with. This one is very eye catching and fits in a small amount of space (without being cluttered). Also it was created in Photoshop and is saved as a PSD, which I heard is a big no-no.
It’s a functional sort of template. I know how to use the software, I know how to enter data, I know how to calibrate the scope of my work, I know what problems to solve, etc.
I believe the blue color that I used for the header is very eye-catching, and I think it’s a nice touch. Besides that, I kept the columns and the default margins really small, like really small. This is the first time I really scrutinized the formatting of my resume, and I think it came out really good.
This means that even if you ordered every page from top to bottom in reverse chronological order (which is what most people recommend) there would be no white space on screen whatsoever which effectively dumbs down your CV immensely.
It’s easy to read – you = your past experience. CV writing is traditionally an old-fashioned practice considered too artistry. ) “Classy. “4. “) You get bonus points if:a.
No frills; just clean lines & effective use-case usage (bolds are used to highlight important information). Second: It follows Semantic Web principles by being able display content in an offline webbrowser with no need ever access Facebook or Google+.
My old resume was just two pages, and looked like shit. This one is organized very well, in my opinion. It saves half a page exactly the way I want it to look, and is just aesthetically pleasing as well.
It looks clean, ATS optimized, and is still easy to read. I was reading about different variants of the standard MS Word template, and there are differences in the styles. Some have line breaks above each section, others do not. Some use bullets, others don’t.
First off — it’s simple! It doesn’t have colors or text boxes that look shitty on scans (those sneaky devils!). Secondly – since most jobs are 90% phone-based anyway — you need to stand out in plain sight if your application is going through an actual person rather than straight up nonsense– which makes sense because call center managers work by numbers.
I think a simple template with a single color makes the resume stand out a bit more without being too flashy.
It makes it easy for me to fit all the relevant info onto 1 page. It looks great, clean and modern. Third, it gives a good idea of what I should highlight and sound intelligent while still being aesthetically pleasing. Fourth, it gives me the opportunity to show off some extra things.
I think it looks nice – doesn’t look like every other cv in this style, and it’s not boring. It integrates best to the main template I use.
First off, it’s just really cool to look at – no boring, bland black and white text here! since I am tailoring my resume for each job I apply to, I can make my resume stand out by coloring it differently based on the job I am applying for.
This template follows a very common & very easy to remember format, something I’ve personally found to be very difficult with other CV templates. Unlike most templates I’ve seen, this one isn’t boring. It’s colorful, it’s unique, and it’s easy to read (something I personally have trouble doing).
I didn’t want to just copy a plain jane template because I’m not sure what happens when the background of your cv is made black.
My old one was just a simple left-aligned bar with no shading, and no graphical elements at all. The new one is very functional, using just text and a border for the body, and uses a shadow instead of a border to give it that ‘3D’ feel that I think is important for a professional CV.
My old resume looked like it was custom-designed content, and it was very difficult to tell where the information came from. The information was hard to parse. My new resume separates the sections into easily identifiable chunks, and makes the formatting of the information pretty much identical to the content. It also makes it much easier to parse.
