This vertical design resume template includes several unique characteristics that you can edit in word including its table formatting, custom section headers with partial borders & icons, and rectangular shaped photo area.

Enquirer’s small page margins and monogram make it most suitable for multiple job types, including electricians, and even logistics-related work.

  • Strong borders surround a boxed-off first and last name area, with double lines above and below every section heading.
  • Select the corresponding cell to adjust the skill bar images. It is rare to have formatting to a degree as high as this. So if you’re sending it off to that business school you’re trying to get into, or if its just to get some extra freelance work on the side, Enquirer gets it done.

It looks so clean and serves a specific purpose: to make the reader focus on the most relevant information (skills, education, experiences, etc. It’s minimalistic and functional. It doesn’t upset the reader with too much text. It’s practical and effective. It’s **stunningly** beautiful.

My text size is 10 point font, and I definitely would like that to be the font style you all recommend. It’s structured very well. Every line tells a complete story, and no two lines are the same.

First off it’s super easy to maneuver (at least on mobile). Second its very clean – again no worries about looking unprofessional with some gray outline areas Thirdly if you own your content like real companies do online, finding out who is behind an individual email becomes far less important than having that person by their name in one place. This makes me hopeful.

First off it looks like every other word in English is shaped correctly (it’s not that ugly), secondly – since most companies use ATS systems to filter out CV/resume information on application review- there isn’t as big an white space near “Experience” section which hurt me before.

It’s not an eye catcher. No insane amount of infographics or graphs. It’s super readable. I didn’t want to make a wall of text and clutter, and keep things vague with vague wording. Instead I went for a short, yet detailed, resume.

It saves me from having to post my resume in an image via imgur, and it keeps my professional experience in the midst of my entertainment experience without creating weird gaps. I’m also trying to use it on a macro level, so the font size stays the same regardless of the paragraph width. That’s not a sure thing, though.

First off: With previous resumes – even those that seemed professional by today’s standards-I was always left with one or two questions hanging after seeing an ad on Linkedin & Fine Home Design asking to see someone “proficient in LinkedIn” (which is weird considering how many people share their experiences publicly across social media these days).

It saves you from having to write your CV twice because it creates an internal space within each page where other text can be placed. The black color makes identifying quick reads easy as if reading something in print – only needingto look up terms under “Education” or underneath maybe some bullet points.

Primarily, the design makes it look like I own the job I am applying for. With the way the design is laid out, it makes the text on the top and the entire resume look very professional. Finally, the summary at the top is a good touch, and matches the way the job title is often described.

First is that it’s beautiful! Second (aside from being totally free) – all job advertisements are balanced on their 1st page only except small companies/startups where there may be more than one employer in your field. – This layout allows you to fit everything onto 2 pages unlike most which can reach 5 or 6 without overcrowding.
