Take a straight-forward approach to making your resume with this contemporary template featuring vertical framework, a two-column layout, and built-in quantifiable results graphical elements.
- It also uses multiple font faces relating to Open Sans, all very readable – that give it a clean look and maintain its professional headlines as well.
- It’s simple and uses a .25 inch thick page border in a lightening shade of black for a tranquil mood.
- Your professional goal can be one of your strongest assets, but it needs to be clear to read so a hiring manager can quickly understand your career change. Using resume objectives that are too long or contain little relevant information can make a hiring manager miss important details about your professional qualifications.
- Try to include as many relevant skills and qualifications as possible in your resume objective. For example, if you are switching to a sales role, you might include skill sets related to prospecting and selling, but you may also include skill sets related to your new technology or familiarity with industry best practices.
- For hiring managers and recruiters who may not have much experience in the field, a summary or objective can be an effective way to introduce yourself and your qualifications. If you have extensive experience, you might consider a mission statement – considered more comprehensive and more widely accepted.
- Let’s say you have a significant amount of experience using a particular computer application. Well, you may be able to ask for a recommendation from someone who knows more about the application you need to use. This can help you qualify for a position with more ease.
- If you have a significant amount of technical skills but not much work experience, you may be able to use the job interview to highlight your strengths and improve your work ethic. Focus on how your abilities can benefit the company and the role you’re applying to.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I used the CV (which was good but didn’t really have a template) and then I customized the resume. I ended up getting 5 phone interviews with it, and one of them was actually for a management position! That was a whole lot better than I expected. I’d love your thoughts.
I had to change my resume several times to try to improve my chances of getting interviews. I would love to share the template if someone gives me a chance on good terms.
I used this template for my last 3 job applications and I got two phone interviews. I’m pretty sure it was the resume. My old resume was a mess. I had a few short-term jobs that didn’t help me get further in the process. I also had a retail job for a few months that I left early to go to school.
No more running around trying to find a job that isn’t looking for you. Just focus on your job search and you will have the rest of your life to enjoy it. Happy job hunting!
It allowed me to fit all the relevant information on one page without sacrificing the story I wanted to tell. I believe if I had tried to fit everything into one page, I would have missed some important stories and important opportunities. Plus, as you will see from my other resumes, I have a strange love for brevity.
I used this template to apply for two internships: one at a large hospital in my state (overseas travel was no problem) and one at a large public hospital in the state I am currently living in. The applications were submitted via the federal government’s portal, so I did not upload a resume or provide any information other than my name, email, and dates I have worked at my previous positions.
It got me my dream internship at the #1 non-profit in the country. Without a doubt. If you are looking to make a career change, and don’t know how to tweak your resume to make a career switch, look no further. This template has helped many people land a career they wanted, and have never thought could be possible.
You don’t need fancy skills to be employable, you just need to be a capable human being with a modicum of common sense and you can land a job. The reason you don’t need fancy skills is because you don’t need to make everything perfect. You just need to make enough of it to satisfy the person reviewing your resume. He/she is more interested in how you made the process rather than how much work you did.
I have a lot of experience, and want to communicate that to potential employers. I’m also trying to keep it as one page as possible, while not skimping on the information. I am going to be sending my resume out to the same type of jobs that I have had previously.
I used this template to land a job as a marketing assistant for a startup company. My resume used to say “I know I don’t have much experience, but I’m willing to learn”. Now it says “I know I don’t have much experience, but I’m willing to learn”. That’s not a good message to send out.
