Your input is very much appreciated .
I don’t have like, a single example of any previous resumes I’ve done – all I have are screenshots of my damn Word document, because I’m so used to attaching my Word document and the screenshot is all my resume has.
It’s simple! No wide horizontal lines (as in recent CV examples).
Number 1, it’s a clean look, and the old one was just too much and I lost some text space (which is bad, btw). Number 2, I can fit more information on the new one and it’s not an overspread mess of a mess.
It looks so sleek and modern, there’s a large bold color that pops against the gray text, and it provides a unifying tone.
It’s very aesthetically pleasing, with a very clean and minimalistic layout. I think this is important to keep if you want your resume to stand out in a sea of others. You don’t have to put every single achievements and skill you have ever achieved. This is a resume.
It’s cleaner than previous resumes because all details are on one page There is no “overview” section (as in other ones i’ve seen) with summaries or objectives at beginning”Experience Efficient Team Problem Solver. ” that fits well into Experience: One column vs two columns.
First and foremost, I think the visual style is really eye-catching. Another reason is that this template allows me to showcase the different areas of expertise that I have. I have a reel and a brochure that together showcase my skills really well.
It’s a story. I’m a writer, and I believe there’s a lot of value in using a strong narrative to start each new section. I believe a resume should be like a story, and each section should be able to stand on its own. it’s a lot less bland than my old resume.
First off it looks clean – in an angular style more suited to me (I like things simple). Secondly when i was looking through resumes on Indeed they were all very similar with large gaps between them- not much “style”.
It saves me from having to write a whole paragraph of “selling” myself, and since I have only worked entry level positions, I don’t feel like I have enough experience to warrant that extra paragraph.
It’s minimal! No essays (or other essay sections) in sight; just relevant experiences & education that are easily verifiable online with little to no errors left behind at both ends or misspellings hanging like bad luck.
It uses a strong baseline of common and complementary colors and fonts to create a professional, yet refreshing, look. It’s formatted nicely to fit every last line of the page. And finally, it’s enabled me to fit my experience across the page without the waste of space.
It saves me 2400 characters 🙂 And it comes with an awesome “faces” section that is basically just picture-based categories to add typographic features/readability. Without getting messy! (I can tweak some things in text area as well)2.
I didn’t want to do a plain black and white, two column resume. I wanted it to stand out and look nice. I wanted it to be one page, and the template was doing that job nicely.
The template makes it easy to showcase achievements/awards/ribbons while keeping the background info to a minimum.
It looks so professional, I don’t feel like I can improve on it with just a few highlights. It’s made my previous resume look like shit in comparison. It’s formatted in a way that I *think* is easier to read.
It’s clean – something that is important when working in corporate settings (I come from an ad agency background).
It looks very professional, it’s readable no matter how fast you skim through it (6 second rule passed with flying colors).
# First, it’s very visual. LotsI’m hoping that people will really use their head out in reading these resumes :). It won’t hurt to show them some examples (a little joke going into details)# Second reason is due its brevity ; ).
It makes my resume fit neatly on one page, which is a must if I want to make it fit on one page. since my experience is not wide-ranging, I can fit my education and coursework onto the same line as my experience, which looks much better than trying to fit everything onto two pages.
There’s the color, chrome as on the top – looks great, isn’t boring at all and stands out immediately. in the bottom section there are lines of text which give it a bit of a professional feel, though you can easily remove that if you wish (although I’d recommend against it).
I didn’t know how to best showcase my (already extensive) experience without resorting to a large, bold “I’m awesome” attitude. I wanted to highlight my particular expertise – that is, my ability to tackle a problem from many different angles and come up with compelling (if not always successful) solutions.
To start off it looks very clean & professional with just enough color to make everyone happy (or angry depending on your feelings towards black&blue).
It provides a clean, uncluttered look that is still easy to read. It allows me to put my work experience in the proper context when talking about my skills and experience. And finally, it allows me to put my experiences (extra curricular and volunteer experience) in the proper context when talking about my skills and experience.
It is visually appealing as hell.It tells a STORY. My old resume just. wasn’t doing it for me. It was boring and lacked a little personality.My old resume was JUST A LIST OF PASSENGER THEMES. I don’t believe a person should have a resume that consists only of THEMES.
I didn’t know what to include on my resume. Since I’m looking for a job in the entertainment business I don’t want to include irrelevant work history like retail and food service. I wanted the resume to be easy to read and scan. In addition, I didn’t want to waste space describing myself in a third story of self effacing paragraphs.
It’s absolutely beautiful! Secondly (and more importantly) It really encourages you to use bullets instead blocks paragraphs like in standard templates which means less trips back/forward need be done just re-wording things again.
I like the linear feel of it. I always had a problem with multi-page resumes on here, feeling like they were taking up too much space. I like how it’s very simple and straight to the point.
It’s so different than anything I’ve ever seen before. It’s so approachable.
I like how the template is completely listless, yet visually appealing. The cv design itself is visually balanced and is sure to catch the eye. I also like how the text is selected and laid out in a manner so as to allow easy reading. The typeface used is Georgia, which is known for its readability and simplicity.
Never have I felt so productive or felt such a sense of accomplishment 🙂 I can fit more information than before in less space. Before I was using large blocks of text to basically just list off my job duties, now I can fit more information in less space without the text looking cramped (as you can clearly see by comparing the two versions).
Firstly, it’s very simple. Grey scale is a great color for engineering cv’s, and thirdly, it looks great with my current black and white design, so a little separated color scheme is working here. I am having a difficult time with this part of my CV.
