Larus defines the word classy, giving graduate school applicants the freedom to draw as much attention to their resume as they want to the key academic and career experiences and achievements that directly relate to their particular area of study.
That said, by choosing Larus’s simple layout, you can avoid excessive descriptions that are irrelevant while concentrating on the 5 to 6 key points filled up with action verbs of your choosing.
As a purely well-rounded CV should, it highlights scholastic honors you’ve received as an undergrad right after stating writing accomplishments on top.
In the end, you’ll be left with a business resume consisting of a small watermark ready to be personalized with your first name, 13 social icon options, and a sample letter of recommendation to boot.

Your input is very much appreciated .
No more writing cover letters, because the information is embedded in the resume. Slight tweak needed, but this is it.
It is simple. If you have 100+ skills and experience, there is no need for a resume that is longer than a single page. A resume that is longer than a single page is a disservice to whoever is reading it. This is about you, your accomplishments, and your goals. It is strong.
It’s so simple, yet does an amazing job of selling you. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to pass an interview with this resume. Every single person I know that has tried this find that they have at least one offer letter or offer in the bag after the first or second interview.
It’s simple, easy to understand, and incredibly effective. 99% of the time, recruiters choose customers over job candidates. This is the perfect resume to give them that “We didn’t hire you because we liked your qualifications, we hired you because we needed someone to do that job” moment. 99% of the time.
It’s so simple, yet packs a punch. Best of both worlds. A resume that’s easy to put on paper, yet looks good on the computer. Best of both worlds, baby. Best of both worlds – the resume that looks good on paper, while still being easy to skim through. Best of both worlds, friend.
I used this template for my first job out of college, and it worked perfectly fine for me (I didn’t even have to brush up on my resume). But then I had a few other jobs that required me to step up to the professional level, so I re-did my resume. And as I was doing that, I discovered that the one resume template I had been using was **very** bad for ATS systems.
I have had no luck whatsoever getting interviews with the old format. I had one potential employer immediately tell me that he thought I was “overqualified” and that’s why he didn’t call me back. He did call me back after I finished his initial draft, but I felt like I didn’t have a fighting chance before he called me in for a second interview.
My old resume was a mess, full of excess space and irrelevant (working in a different field) information. It’s aesthetic. It’s a pleasure to look at, and that’s important to me. It’s ability to leverage all the important work experience I have.
I decided to go with a “basics” template in the belief that I am better off with a basic, yet functional resume. I have received the most success with this template, and I can definitely see why HR people tend to like it. I personally find the “classic” templates boring.
I used this template to apply for two internships, both of which I was accepted to. I had no intern experience when I applied, so I just put my high school education and lab experience from undergrad on this resume.
