Prior to whipping out your application for grad school, show your expert design skill-set with your two-toned, uncluttered resume and cover letter.
- This double pack of templates help not only job applicants’ careers’… but they also help the trajectory of students’ futures’ thrive by aspiring them to leave the right impression.
Comes in two styles for word:
- The five main tables in the body have grey borders from corner to corner… fitting all of your resume’s content onto one page. Utilizing classic and sophisticated fonts to provide blue and black accents, Fuego is a template named for it being best described in one word: it’s a fire students.
Above is a quick pic of what the scholastic achievements table looks like. It highlights your GPA (which you should only list if you graduated with more than a 3.5 or above), in addition:
- It lists multiple colleges (to cover your associates, bachelors, and/or masters degree)
- It states where you obtained your highschool diploma & what type (whether its an honors program, general diploma, or GED).
- It tells what scholarships you’ve achieved while in school.
- It gives enough description space for any extra curricular activities (like a fraternity or sorority you’re an alumni or current member of) that you can supply with your own school details and names.
You may opt to change the honors and awards section to an impressive letter of recommendation from one of your professors if you are listing current education information.
- You can retain the college credits line, or add emphasis to the name of a degree that you may be in progress of completing along the bottom of the header.

I’ve worked in the restaurant industry since I was 17 years old. I’ve worked jobs that only lasted a month or two and others that have lasted for years. I’ve worked jobs that I don’t have any references for and others that I do have references for and the employer knows my current job. I also have a college degree which is something most people don’t have.
I can say that it has improved readability, made the information more concise and easy to digest, and it has improved my ability to communicate my knowledge and skills. In addition, it has made me more confident about presenting myself and communicating my ideas. When I began the process of creating my new resume, I knew it would take time. I was wrong.
I used this template in combination with the “Job Title – Company Name” and “Job Title – Company Name” combo and I got a call back in less than a minute. I’m not trying to brag, but my company’s president said I was the best candidate he’s seen in years. He wanted me in on the company’s new “HR Stack Exchange” project to build a stack exchange clone in 24 hours. I built it and now it’s live.
I have applied for more than 50 jobs and I have not gotten a single response. I am starting to feel like it is not worth it to even apply for an engineering position using this resume template. My hope is that I have created a good resume, but that it is not being seen by anything but HR managers.
You will not regret it. First of all, your resume is a living, breathing document. If you do not like it, change it, revise it, and then send it back to me for approval. I am the master of reviewing resumes, and if I do not like what you send me, you do not have to send it to me. Second, your headline. This is where I get to play with words to make your resume stand out and grab attention.
I’m posting this on behalf of my sister, who is working as a project manager on a software company’s engineering team. She is extremely happy with her decision to use this template.
I have always been a people person and I am good at getting along with people. I believe that seeing people you would get along with them and not put them down would create a better company. That is why I decided to put my contact info in the header and not the footer.
It’s much easier to skim through and find relevant information. I’m still working on improving the readability, but I think I’ve done a fairly good job overall. Also, I’m aware of the weird indenting issues in the Education and Work experience sections. It’s not a big deal, so I’m not really worried about it.
I had to apply to 100+ jobs this year and only got 1 interview. That’s it. No job. I did have a 2nd interview but that was a bust as well.I could not figure out why I was not getting any callbacks. I had a stellar GPA (3.93) and participated in all sorts of clubs from Mathematics to Cross Country to Varsity Soccer. I was even in the marching band.
I used an existing resume template and made my new resume from scratch. The old template was way too wordy. This new template is much more concise. The last position I held a two-page resume. I tried to trim it down to one page, but I’m not sure I did it correctly. Also, I’m not sure how to list my education.
