Whether you’re just shooting for that first job, getting promoted up the career ladder, or your next big job as a lawyer straight out of law school… stand out with this easy to digest resume we like to refer to as Flatwood.
You can use a variety of word versions the existing photo to that of your own, Place it in the header, or don’t shy away from creating a custom emblem that represents your own professional brand.
Just select any element to make inevitable adjustments to the executive summary, your personal references, or temp jobs to do your justice in a multi-color tone.
- The first thing you should do before sending your resume is to carefully read the job posting for any instructions on how the employer would like you to apply. If the job description asks you to email a resume, the employer may also include information about the email address you should send to, the city and state in which to send it to and the instructions on how you should submit it.
- Follow these instructions carefully—if you don’t, you could risk having your application overlooked. For instance, if you’re sending your resume to a company’s website, you may include an incorrect contact section, which could result in your resume being overlooked.
- Consider using a professional email address. For instance, firstname.lastname@example.org is a more professional version of your name, while email@example.com is a more creative one.
- Avoid using nicknames or numbers. They’re often used by employers to identify candidates, but you don’t want to inadvertently give away your personal information. Instead, use your real name, and if you’re a recent graduate, use your last name.

It’s so simple, yet packs a punch. The information is straight forward yet provides you with everything you need. It’s beautiful yet modern. Easy to use yet versatile. It’s a resume you can be proud to send out. Hell, I’d even take it over a fancy studio resume.
I know you’re sitting there thinking, “But tim, everyone on the internet already says how terrible templates are,” but hear me out. I’m a recovering designer/artist/illustrator who’s been making his own designs since he was 13 years old.
No other template can match the combination of features and ease of use of this template. I’m not going to show you the resume in public.
It’s simple, beautiful, easy to read, and has that perfect amount of formatting to it. If you follow a few steps you’ll have a resume that will knock your socks off. **How to use:***To best show how this resume is structured, I’m going to assume the reader is at least somewhat familiar with how resume templates work.
I used this template to apply for 2 internships, both of which I was accepted to. I then applied to 4 more internships, of which I was accepted to 2. Of the 2 I didn’t hear back from 1 and the other I was rejected. Of the 2 I did hear back from, one was a rejection, but they had already found someone better suited for the position.
100%. It’s simple. It’s clean. It’s modern. It’s easy to read. It’s **not** flashy. It’s **not** over the top. It’s **absolutely** effective. 99% effective, in fact.
I’m so confident and proud of myself for making this decision. Up until now, I was applying to hundreds of jobs a week, and I would get maybe one or two call backs. I decided to focus on my education for the past 1.5 years and I achieved a pretty good GPA (3.56). I also managed to do a lot of volunteering and part time jobs to build my experience.
I used this template to apply for two internships, both of which I was accepted to. I then applied to a third internship which I was also accepted to, but was not able to go due to health reasons. The last internship was a last resort to get some money for my tuition. All in all, it took me around six months to find a job. Of those six months, I had two interviews and I didn’t get either job.
I know it’s expensive, but it’s worth it. 100%. My job as a content strategist at a digital marketing firm is incredibly boring. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but I’m not getting any calls back for interviews. I’ve been applying to tons of roles, but I’m getting none.
It’s incredibly easy to use, comes with a list of keywords to get you past ATS, and it looks damn good. I can’t wait for y’all to try it. Now I’m just trying to get myself into a new job asap because I am truly losing hope.
