You don’t go for crazy fancy, voguish type designs. That’s why this executive yet creative, business-like resume is ideal for experienced professionals across all industries.
The overall outline touts a corporate feel, while basing a focal point around your strength areas at the same time… tailor-made for standing out from an endless stack of other job candidates.
Because of the easily customizable columns, this template is considered suitable for any profession or amount of experience.
You can also throw in additional line graphs and key points that you feel are appropriate.
If you’re someone with a long resume, don’t shy away from utilizing both pages- just be aware however that you can easily just use the main page if you can fit all you need on it.

I’m not blind, I can see the difference between a real resume and a not so great one. I can use my real one to put up my own website (if I put in the right information).
It feels clean and concise, while still looking impressive. It’s a single page, which I’m told is a good thing in this type of cv format. It’s simple and minimal yet still packs a punch.
I think the template is visually appealing. I can use a .doc template instead of a .pdf, which I think is easier to read and some companies don’t like .pdf’s. Third, I know my previous resume wasn’t getting the attention I needed so I created a completely new, clean design.
I think it looks pretty professional. It gives me a lot of room to put down *content* and it doesn’t look like I’m trying to pad it.
I like how my old resume looked like a mess, with type sizes ranging from 10 to 11 and a confusing jumble of lines and columns. With this new resume, I was able to reduce those messes and get a clean, consistent type size. No more large blocks of empty space! In addition, this new resume beats out my old one in every category.
I have worked in a variety of industries, some in Tech Support.
It is direct and to the point. It is divided into two columns, each column being roughly 3 lines high. This allows me to fit more information while still providing enough white space for my entire resume.
My old resume was ATS friendly if you will. This one is not. I was told by a few that it isn’t a good idea to use a template that isn’t a .
I didn’t use a template I paid $20 for. when I edited it, it reflected the changes I made to my original cv which, to me, seems important. And, finally, the way I have it set up, it allows me to fit all the relevant information on one page.
I don’t like the classic “Job Title, Experience, Skills” format that most professional resumes follow. I also don’t know a *”fancy”*” cv from a plain text file is still a big no-no. So, I decided to give it a go and get one of those fancy professional cvs.
I don’t like the conscious use of typeface for professional cv’s. It tends to be very bland and boring. The story is presented in formats of a paragraph, each format with a heading that provides some context/background. I personally find it makes the cv feel somewhat incomplete.
I don’t want to give too much space to the companies I worked for when I wasn’t really a typical “stay at home mom”. I also wanted to highlight my carrer jobs because they are the most relevant to my job search, and I feel like they are the most important.
I think it looks nice–clean, readable, and aesthetic. Since I’m a software engineer, my resumes are usually heavy with technical details and numbers that only a select few will really care about. This template eliminates much of that, and instead focuses on what I said I was going to be about in my original post.
I didn’t think my old resume was all that good. this new cv template is much easier on the eyes, and doesn’t try to look like every other template out there.
It’s clean (no more “wall-o”). 2 pages ! Huge improvement over last one which was literally 1 page long tbh. * The job descriptions are conciseer than in most cases – to me at least they feel easier read.
I’ve been using a serif font (Helvetica Condensed) for my text, and the color scheme is so different (though still, monochromatic) from the rest of the resume. I feel like it’s pretty bold and in-your-face, and that’s needed for an analyst.
It’s very clean, very readable, and still looks professional despite being in a creative field. It’s black and white so it’s easy to reference, and the font is not boring looking Helvetica Neue.
I noticed that a lot of resumes that I came across here looked really plain in design.
It saves me literally tons data to use as needed during application tracking systems (ATS).
It allows me to fit all that information on 1 page with minimal bloat (unless i’m lying). Also it has some nice visual flourishes which are hardto achieve in microsoft word or anything similar.
The advice to “Show Your Work” in resumes has always bothered me immensely until now! For some reason it detects when i have used that phrase somewhere else on another document (i’ve had people tell you not show your work where others can see/hear). So yeah.
It’s beautiful! The primary color scheme is super easy to read & work with (boring black/white text vs multiple colors strung together looking all overthe place)I like that there are no columns or vertical lines in site as well. Nice 2nd paragraph section.
I thought it looked nice, especially compared to most templates I’d seen. I wanted a resume that is as easy to read as possible, minimizing the amount of information needed to know what I want to know.
It still has that great Harvard “I realize excellence is difficult to attain” vibe despite being published all over school journals (yes even if you didn’t win).
I don’t like to use a second page, and always have trouble fitting everything on one page.
It is so simple. It is only divided into two pages. And fourth, it focuses on achievements, not general job tasks, which is a good thing. Here is a quick peek:The next step for me is to create the cover letter.
It is very easy to read/follow along with. being a creative design major my background makes me a bit nervous about the traditional layout of resumes. And finally, I personally find the typical Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) experience to be a bit daunting.
I think it looks nice — no more boring black and white text. It stands out, and helps fill up white space on the page. I think it’s clean. I never liked those “ick” looking resume “pulls from somewhere” type of things. They really just make my head hurt.
Because it is simple, straight to the point and effective. because the template accommodates a very important part of my career – my most recent job.
I didn’t know much about professional resume writing, and now I am looking to get a job in this field. I hope that with this kind of CV, I can advertise myself to companies.
There’s the awesomely modified title: “The Google Resume 0”. The info is right there on the Google Docs template! No more fiddling with a Word document to figure out where to put a section title or header.
It looks like every other recent resume I see here on this sub. Every artist’s resume has a distinctive look, and it’s not just because of the bold colors. Unlike most resumes, this one actually has a proper timeline. It isn’t just a jumbledup of points and bullets kind of thing.
My old resume was all jacked up, with multiple bullet points from one job description repeated across different jobs. With this new template, I can simply condense those bullet points (hopefully lessened the amount of “wtf” factor) into concise, easy-to-parse summaries.
It’s in line with the navy blue color scheme of my resume. This is something I’m personally now very passionate about since I took my current resume (which is just a straight forward list of work history with no flavor text) and made it visually more interesting with small icons and lines.
