Laredo uses huge custom icons, circular-shaped, to help label each section you opt to include in your resume.
Entirely formatted using multiple tables in word, this core-functional layout emphasizes your top seven core abilities.
Try to only list what’s relevant to the job you’re applying for. Change the coloring of the baby blue circles to red to change your proficiency levels.
Be sure to throw in as many keywords as possible into your about me section, particularly words relating to your desired industry… this is a clever way to get picked up by more applicant tracking systems, and ultimately getting you noticed.
Click on the inserted photo and replace it with one of your own favorites. If you don’t want to include a headshot, grab a logo or illustration of your choosing (sample images are also included in the library).
For additional sections, you may want to consider any certifications you’ve obtained throughout your career, any academic accomplishmentsƒ??or, if you only have high school for education, it’s best to go ahead list any other training you’ve attended. Even if you didn’t finish the course(s), simply list the dates you attended. Some college is always better than none, most of the time.
HIGHLY SUITABLE FOR.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I hope the content is also good. #1 I can pick out different words and phrases throughout the text easily. #2 It looks clean, as in no color or patterning. Clean lines are good. In my old cv, all the lines were jagged and looked messy. #3 It uses just one page.
It saves you from having to type important information multiple times (yes even where it’s repetitive). Moreover s/he / she makes your CV look neat without making any scant lines visible.
I like how the template did not include a Profile or Summary section. With my old cv, I always found myself skipping over this sections because I felt my experience speak for itself. I also like the way the new cv follows the traditional 4 section format.
Yay me!! It comes with some absolutely beautiful color designs which really make you stand out from everyone else 🙂
For one thing it makes me feel like what i’m putting in there is actually truthful instead thing saying “fantastic job you guys got here”. Secondly speaking about types. There are many different opinions on resumes into specific fields – Petroleum Eng. /Mechanical Engineering /Others.
Normally I feel very self conscious with what I put on paper, and not just because I’m a designer. My last few positions didn’t require a lot of creativity. I was quickly approved by my boss for a new “creative” format. She didn’t like the old one.
It’s very legible no matter how small your font is (mine isn’t even that). It keeps things simple yet still offers enough information to make me stand out amongst other candidates :).
It looks very clean, like a professional CV should look. It’s easy to read (I’ve tried to remove all instances of color or shading where practical) and it’s structured well. Anyway, I appreciate the compliment.
It’s much easier to read/scan It gives me more room to talk about my experiences and It doesn’t list my education.
It saves me from having to put work experience in with skills (which is what i had been doing tbh), it looks nice overall presenting on paper instead of microsoft word’s flashy text (. Docx vs.
No more Specific Interests sections, which were a waste of space and didn’t give anything substantial for the companies I was applying to.It was easier to format since all the sections directly related to what I was trying to show.It was easier to integrate the job descriptions into the other sections.It was cleaner.
It’s organized nicely. ” lines. Simple and beautiful, just like my new resume. Now for some issues I have:I have had a lot of different jobs.
It uses a very common (for CV’s at least) 2 column layout, which I love. it gives me the option to write longer descriptions in my experiences, instead of the standard boring text below.
It’s beautiful! It really makes me want to get out there in front on creating something great again.
It’s beautiful! Secondly (which is critical to me)is that every single picture in here was taken by myself or someone else who knew what they were doing. No rush / fake colors etc.
It looks cool with school volunteer work , like a kid drawing or a college kid in the beginning stages of their resume – just let loose. It’s easy to read, because every line is a clear instruction to the reader what to look at next.
Primarily being able to put my past experience on the same page as current, instead of the other way around, and being able to fit all of it on one page. I think my main selling point is being able to fit so much into such a small area.
It is visually appealing as hell: Grabbing your eyeballs is good, as far as I’m concerned. Efficient use of space: In the old resume template, I’ve guessed the total space needed was about 30%.
My old one was very cluttered overall (as you can see from pictures), with several lines per section talking about work/life balance & project roles vs technical ones; many tech companies use automated screening tools to filter out candidates based on prior experience etc., so each job post is essentially three or four full pages long.
It uses a custom font that I think looks great. Next, themage code is readable (if you set the correct variables, of course). Finally, the whole thing is on one page.
I primarily use the header bars to define the content of the sections, and they look great. I also love that they give a brief description for each section, and that they are ATS friendly. One of my biggest frustrations with my old resume is that it was ATS unfriendly.
It’s very aesthetically pleasing, and stands out from the majority of cvs out there. It offers me some useful tool to set my credentials in a nice package.
