It’s functional! In traditional resumes you have your **Objective** at top-center then under each position in chronological order with some color to make them stand out (they do look visually appealing like that).

It is very minimalist (no columns or horizontal lines), which feels nice on mobile devices; it’s aesthetically pleasing to look at without being too over-the – top with graphics & colors associated w/ corporate branding in general. ; And finally its written entirely within Word., making changing styles via Adobe Indesign rather easy.

It’s very minimalist, yet still eye catching. It’s also in black and white, which adds to the “punishability” of any individual page. The first and second pictures in the upper left corner are both my initials, which I also like.

Looks can be replaced with a nice illustration or graphic, which for me, sucks, because then the eyes are waiting for a hook to grab them. using percentages makes it visually *pop* and not bland.

I don’t want to disregard the fact that I have to fit everything on one page. I’m also not sure if 1 page is enough for entry-level professionals (most cvs I see are 5-2 pages).

It saves me 2400+ characters (I’m in european language) since previous ones were just too long & included many irrelevant details that didn’t help at all with getting word-of -mouth jobs or even interviews. Creates impression instead awkward dates.

Mostly that it mimics one big file (I know how Microsoft Word is), so converting back to. Docx might not be such an issue with you guys on here. Anyway! Natural 1-2 years experience in content creation/copy writing required.

It is functional: you can tell what section/job title each category fits in without having to open another page with redundant information (a big plus when space tight). Second, its extremely aesthetically pleasing as-is; anyone who sees your resumes will pick out yourself immediately from their first glance!Thirdly – It saves me time.

It has summaries on almost every position to make it easyto read. Also having positions listed by organization makes database searching easier.

My old resume had NO awards or accomplishments in the previous three years. It was just pure accident that I was constantly taking notes and then throwing them away. I decided I needed to put some of these things on paper, so I formatted it and started cutting out old junk.

I got the idea of using a simple, classic template from this sub. It’s clean, balanced, and aesthetic. Classic, simple, and effective. My old resume was far too text heavy and visually busy. I’m a believer that hiring managers care more about your resume as a *collection of experiences* than they do about the content.

My work experience has basically been the same company over and over, so there isn’t much to change in this versionOther than my personal hobbies & interests section which is very limited, I moved the dates for my current company to the bottom despite having a few positions that were only a few months each.

It’s clean! No more chucking away resumé filler words like “process analyst” or ( God knows why they keep saying that) Salesforce Administrator.

It’s functional: you can actually see what your doing in terms of writing etc (which is something that other templates don’t do).

It uses a consistent size font, so it’s easy to read and doesn’t look cluttered. the text is not centered, which is something I’ve always been told to do.

First off it’s super easy to read / follow (I’m sure you could argue that its readable). You can also easily add impressive numbers from 10 in many areas if required by your particular career etcSecond, even after reformatting several times myself i find hard typing out pretty much any information without some kind Font or style change.

I hope it’s not too over the top. I’m having a little bit of trouble with the education section. With my new cv, I only have one school listed, and its the only school/private teacher hired school in my country.

It’s nicely organized. It has a slightly more modern, non-Times New Roman style. (I like this cv template)Another reason I’m really digging this template is that I can use it for any job based on this template.

It uses a simple layout, instead of the complex layout I had previously used (which, IMHO, had its own problems). I like the way its structured. It follows a similar structure to my CV and my cover letters.

Plus – it’s green ! :)The old one:My other concern is related to job descriptions. Some require extensive knowledge in specialized fields which may contradict with each others’ skill sections (i’m itching learn VBA yet were unable turn an ambitious dev into 3-5 months worth hours spent mastering impossible ad hoceworks because he needed coffee).

It’s clean, simple and at the same time very eye catching. It also happens to be a really great balance between having a CV like this and a resume. The first thing people will notice is that I have condensed my long resume into a single image.

I think that with a bit of imagination, anyone can come up with a on a creative resume. I think that a creative resume, with a bit of imagination can make the difference between getting an interview and not getting one.

My old resume was just *a* resume. I’ve never been *loyal* to a company or a position, and didn’t go to college so I didn’t have to be “tested” by the real world. No one would hire me because I was ‘too good’ for them.

It looks so neat on paper! First off it’s clean: no fluff anywhere in sight. * The plain text is easy to read (boring old “mission statements”)* Besides being simple yet tasteful – **it stands out like Jimmy Johns**In addition there are other things that make me confident t hat when employers open their mouths.

Primarily it looks like a real professional CV, it’s not a list of duties I expect them to do, it’s a look at my life so far, it’s an appreciation of what I’ve done that can’t be expressed in a list. Secondly it’s uncomplicated and straight to the point.

And it’s got some color back in a couple places. But, I have to say, I’m almost tempted to put a few more of my key skills and accomplishments, because they’re:-Probably overrated.

It keeps my CV concise, yet it looks nice. I can add or delete parts as needed to suit jobs better. It helps me to be more concise in my description of roles/achievements. And it keeps it clean and simple without sacrificing readability.

I don’t like how wordy I am feeling my current job descriptions. I feel like I’m using too many active verbs and I want to cut some of them out. I want to cut them down to 1 page. I want to cut them down to a single page. I want to use this same template for my cover letter as well.

It saves you from having to fill your CV/Resume with random irrelevant details that won’t read well on paper while still looking like an eye-catcher (obviously these are limited resources). Also it gives each job its own space so there’s more vertical room than if they’re spread throughout; inspiring us all.

I think the template is really eye-catching – I like the combination of a solid, classic design with a touch of color, and I think it’s interesting to look at. I think the wording is more efficient and clear. I didn’t want to repeat myself, and the wording is also consistent with each other and with English laws/regulations.

My old one was very basic in layout; some how it just looked boring despite being beautiful when you were done with your work (no typography or color).

It’s so different than what I was using before. I found a template that I think looks very clean and stands out from the rest. And finally, I noticed that when people open up your resume in a text editor, they often highlight your job descriptions.

First off all professional enough to know that you should put your name on it! Second its in. OTF which is very easy enter via text fields into word programs (i use Adobe) Thirdly i like how each section has “Provenance” so whenever people see what project they did.

First off all sister companies are shown separately in two columns instead clumped together like they used to be at company X (where Y was parent organization). This looks much more professional than previous where brand A shared space with Brand B even though those brands were separate entities no one would ever know about except from industry names behind generic entity such as ABC Company or XYZ Co.

First – I’m going to use this cv to apply for Business analyst and Senior Business analyst positions in the Netherlands, so it needs to be a little different from the norm. Second – I’m from Europe, so I really struggle with the whole “Western” thing.

The first and most important being that I know I look like a scoop. I know I have the body text size just right and the length just long enough to hold someone’s attention. The second reason is that I know I can be concise and straight to the point. This makes me feel confident in describing my duties without the need to explain everything.

It’s above the competition with an *excellent* design. It’s not boring, varied, ugly, or chaotic. It’s a**bold** color scheme (used a deep purple) with a black background. Great for ATS.

It’s clean. every line is aligned to the right (alignment tool doesn’t do a great job on this). In addition, every text element is large and bolded.

It saves space by not including “related jobs” full time employees (like me) or even internships that were short term in nature (*as opposed to saying 2014-2018). Also it lets you showcase more experience since most resumes are just one page nowadays anyways. #My main issue is there isn’t enough on here.

It is designed so that all your content fits on one page (or at least doesn’t overwhelm). Second – Being based around an infographic design makes it easy to manage without getting lost in text; while still being interesting/not overwhelming depending upon what you look At. – The main heading has been made more readable by adding bullet points.

Number one is the USE of colors! Seriously, they are so much more interesting when you use color, especially in a professional setting.

I have a feeling that is has helped that it has gotten me some results. I am sure there are some formatting/template mistakes, I used a template that was recommended by a friend. My job has been pretty unsettled recently due to a lot of factors, and I have been trying to get some things done as quickly as possible.

There’s just something very satisfying about opening up LaTeX and having it output something that looks like a painting that you paid money for.

Most of the job market seems to be doing away with personal cover letters as best as they can, either doing them on the online application process or dropping them off wherever you apply. Having grown up in australia and doing au pairs for a few years, I really value and love giving people a personalised gift.

It is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It’s simple, yet versatile, and not cluttered. It stands out, while still being ergonomic and modern. I know from personal experience that it’s good to take some sort of visual aid when starting out on a project.

Having the template on my page allows you to control where on the page the text and graphics go, which in my opinion is a very nice touch. Next, because my cv is very simple in design, it allows my text to be easily read, even when set in small text sizes.
