We loved this user submission due to its multi-industry true hybrid design. On face value it looks like just another minimalist resume template characterized by its mirror-like, symmetrical full-page setup.
Play around with the background patterns in word, add filters, swap font faces, insert section borders, illustrations, and a watermark to it’s gorgeous vertical design.
Be a dork by adding months to the dates on the right. Parsing some action words from other samples isn’t a bad idea either…
More Tips and Tricks for Word. Right click on the shape the covers the left half of the page and go to the ‘Format Shape’ option on the bottom. Then, under the Fill tab, select ‘pattern fill’ and change ‘small grid’ to ‘dark downward diagonal’ and see how that looks!
Did you know? Professional and educational achievements can add to your resume’s credibility, so include them if they are relevant to the role. For example, if you are applying for a job as an assistant professor, you might include information about your teaching accomplishments, publications or research.

I used this template and got 3 phone interviews within the first week of applying. Not only that, but I made the changes myself, without any template, knowing exactly what HR managers look for.
I had to change from a traditional resume to a digital one in order to appeal to the modern professional and keep it under one page. I hope I can convince you why I should be the one getting the new job. First, let me say that I am a specialist in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and I have been working as one for a few years now.
The perfect change from the usual “fluff and fluff – more fluff” type of resumes that I’ve been dealing with (in terms of samples found online). This is formatted appropriately for ATS, and very efficiently structured.
I applied for 20 jobs last month. Got 8 phone screens. 8 interviews. And 2 offers. I did not let the first interview go to the final round because I realized that the 2nd interviewer was more focused on my lack of a degree than my experience. I am still on the 2nd round. They called me today to tell me that the position is filled. I was ecstatic.
I used this template to land a job as a content writer with nearly perfect reviews (98% on a 1-5 scale) and zero interviews. I was also able to land a job as a non-editor in the same company (paid as an intern and not a full-time employee) for a year and a half.
No more “lost” internships or “mixed up” experience years. You have one consistent resume with a clear career path. I used this resume for 100 applications with great success and landed 18 interviews. 19 companies hired me. Obviously, if you are a top performer, your resume will be seen quicker. I found this template while searching for a new job recently.
I spent hours and hours trying to come up with a new template because I am tired of using what is essentially the same format year after year after year. Each time I sit down to do it I just tweak a few things here and there until it works. Then I apply for jobs and I am completely lost when it comes to the online forms and the actual resume itself.
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. After a little more than a month, I was accepted to the third internship. I have heard that you should do a quick apply to jobs so you have time to fix mistakes on your resume.
I got a few interviews from it, and it has gotten me a few phone interviews, but I am not getting them at the level that I was hoping to get. My current position is not ideal, but it is a step up from my previous role.
I used this template to apply for three internships and landed all three jobs (that I know of). The only thing I didn’t include on this resume is my senior capstone project. I heard that some companies only accept a maximum of three senior capstone projects. If I had included that, then it would have been a 2.5 page resume. I also had a 4.0 GPA my sophomore year, but I decided to leave that out.
