Fluidity is appropriate for any job type (even university students), allowing for a lengthy mission statement and boatloads of volunteer experience, if needed.
For those who want minimal graphics, the download bundle includes a second version (see above) without the skills chart in its side panel.
Since Fluidity uses simple tables in word, all you have to do is begin highlighting each section, copy your original resume information, and paste it in all the right spots.
The chart is easy to tailor to your qualities; above you can see how quick it is to edit its data in word.
The first left column boasts a light blue background, and brings much needed attention to your educational background and contact information:
The sample core-functional resume comes with an identically styled letterhead page, along with alternative infographics to mix and match along the way.
IDEAL FOR A MULTITUDE OF JOB SEEKERS:
- Career Changes
- Entry Level
- First Jobs out of High School

Your input is very much appreciated .
It saves me from having to put more thought into headings than necessary (a pain she did mention), while still looking clean (somebodies gotta eat).
It’s beautiful! It looks like professional document rather than any sort thing you’ll find on LinkedIn or Indeed lol (also **I** feel that way about many resumes as well). Second reason is because with most templates there are always exceptions to every rule haha.
** It’s simple and to the point:** I like how *this* simple template does just that: it’s direct and to the point. No more full paragraphs of “I feel this, therefore x, therefore y” nonsense. No more “I wish I were there, therefore I am” either.
It’s beautiful! Secondly (and mainly related to is that since most job postings use exactly one page anyway nowadays there isn’t much room left unless you make big changes anyways which i don’t like doing.
It looks nice in white space after changing to grayscale did yeaaaahSome other things:* The header feels too little since its only one page.
It saves me from having to explain what happened on every single bullet point in job description (i’m looking at you Google). What is also nice about it are its intuitive visual cues: by default when someone reads word-for-word or diagrammed resumes they tend go towards reading comprehension over verification modes like auto pilot etc.
I don’t want my resume to look like a copy/paste of my LinkedIn profile. I also don’t want it to be overly fancy, or to look like a template.
For one, it’s sleek – two pages was too long, and three or more was too long.
I don’t like to use a 2-column resume and I also like the way this one looks. Reason number one is that when I designed it, I counted the extra space as one column instead of two.
I think the first reason is that I was able to fit all the relevant information (education, experience, skills) on one page, which was a challenge before because I was trying to squeeze it in with no room.
As everybody knows who has ever hired anybody else- CVs are used to advertise job positions in spades more than they’re often given credit on paper (think WFH).
It’s very readable, and yet stands out. My previous resume looked like a kid did it, and that didnt work. I wanted it to look simple and easy to read.
It makes my resume fit nicely on one page. since my experience is not that strong, I wanted to make sure that the experience section was still readable. I feel like my bullet points in experience make that section relatively readable. Lastly, I wanted to highlight my language ability in my resume.
I think the template itself is pretty eye-catching. I know personally I’m a big sucker for a concise and clean looking resume, and this definitely does the job. I think the information in the body of the resume is pretty important.
It’s in 12 pt Times New Roman font, is on 6 x 8″ paper, and is left alignment.
I *hate* one page resumes. A few years ago I worked at a bank that had me in a retail role one year, then do a commercial banking job the next year, then did a relationship loan officer x years later. Oh, and I was also a customer service assistant five years prior.
