  • For a formal resume with sophistication, it’s recommended to only use two to three colors. It’s also best to opt for white backdrops to make sure your sections are readable under any screen resolution.
  • Replace the mock up photo with your favorite headshot next the objective part.
  • Striking word elements of the template include complimenting symbols for bullet points, interest and social media images, and icons designed for your contact information at the center – following the blue-brown shading motif of the header.
  • Experiment with different data sets for the horizontal bar graphs and pie charts on the second page.
  • And, the bold availability heading lettering sends the message of exactly when you can begin work.

Additional Tip:

Your work experience section should include the names of your previous employers, your job title, years of employment, pay rate and any other relevant information. Use this section to highlight your work as a host or bartender, rather than a waiter or waitress. This section can show potential employers your dedication to the field of hospitality and the respect you have for your employer’s expectations.

The first is that instead of just listing skills like “Programming”, etc., it actually has some substantial content in each skill (i’m thinking you could put things such as *”Implemented object-oriented features to create efficient objects/military logistics support systems”).

Every line is easy to read unlike many others on here that are full color bombastic shit pies with little or no space between any 2 lines (this was pointed out by another wiki administrator).

It’s clean, simple, and it works really well. My old resume had a bunch of objective statements bullshitting me into thinking that I was a good fit for some jobs I applied to. This new resume stays true to its name – it’s concise and to the point. It also helps that it’s only two pages.

It uses a different font than my old resume (Times New Roman, Helvetica Neue), and it uses a slightly different style for the header and body. The font is also larger font and easier to read. Additionally, the text is bold-lined and printed in black.

MT: I think overall the new template looks better. I personally feel like the old template just doesn’t look creative enough and cluttered. I personally like the modern style of the new template better. I tried to make the resume a little bit more clear and concise.

I think it’s very clean. It’s simple, yet still takes the reader by surprise with how smoothly it works. In addition, I think the bullet points are another thing that are done very well.

It looks clean, and though I know my experience isn’t Heavily resume focused it should showcase the “meat” of my experience.

I never actually finish the “Skills” section. Usually, it’s a list of soft skills, something like: ” fluency in x, y, z programming languages, experience working in teams, attention to detail” . etc. I think it’s kind of a useless space and it’s repetitive.

The sample GPA area is very clean – a major plus for me since I’m not particularly creative. the template is cleverly designed to allow me to list my education without actually listing the schools, hence no “[School Name] College” listing. That’s a first for me.

It looks so professional, and the blue is just amazing. It’s not overbearing at all. Plus, it’s a fairly simple template. No weird margins or weird lifts or anything like that.

This looks much nicer than my last resume, which was just a simple word doc with no flair. I think the new one looks a little more professional, despite being only one page.

I think templates are cool. I think the old one just isn’t very good looking in general. The old one was just a wall of text. With this one, I can actually leave out the job experience and it’ll still look pretty good. “Latest Company News” is no longer relevant.

Reading my resume was like putting soup on my resume. I feel like it’s a very “American” design–something that is easy to understand and easy to brand. Third, I think it stands out from a pile of other resumes which is needed.

It saves me 2400% in space (with all it’s stuff on tiny paper lol) This is also how i’m going to be writing everything that includes “work experience”. The first part has what im doing now as work exp.

It looks very professional, it’s easy to read, and it’s extremely readable. Readability, in my opinion, is extremely important. One of my biggest struggles in the past has been trying to make my resume “look nice”, with lots of color, and lots of words.

I don’t like the fact that my previous resume was a wall of text and literally looked like a toddler wrote it. This one, I feel very readable and clean.

The main thing is that when I apply to a position, I don’t just hand them my resume and be done with them. Generally, I tailor my resume for about 5 positions, going for positions that seem like a good fit for me (i. Administrative Assistant, Customer Service Representative, Project Analyst, etc.

My old resume had a boring resume with very little color or pattern. It made me look “boring”, and not in a good way. This new template goes back to the “choose yourself” style I’ve seen so many people run with, and I think it’s so much more appealing.

Simple is good :DSecond: It follows some very strict principles when writing an CV (minor revisions/formatting etc based on key words in job description).

It follows a recent idea I saw that split resume into two columns. I like this because it gets us away from weird layout and lets recruiters get to see more of my experience. It allows me to fit more keywords on the page.

I don’t like how visually uneven it is, especially at the bottom. The text is smaller in size, and less dense. I think it looks much more readable.

First off it looks clean – no need to include an “About Me” section where every job entry in recent years has been some variation on *I like pizza. * Loads more professional looking than last time around which was just ugly all round.

I think it looks very clean. Although, it does get my info on a single page, which some people may dislike. I think the one-column format gives a chance for me to showcase more of my skills and experience.

It allows me to have flexible ordering according ot whatever work i do (which is usually one page), it looks good with or without any “fillers”, since they aren’t necessary there anyway.

It offers me a nice clean look, no add-ins required. In addition, it allows me to list job titles rather than just bullet points, which is what I’ve heard from many peers and former employers.

First off it looks clean – two columns with nothing from 2000 years ago running along each side (that would mess up searches in Google), which is important since most places want you to upload your CV online rather than hand out paper copies.

I am hoping that you all can help me highlight those reasons.* The weird coloring of the title is just my headshot from the top, it’s not an attempt to be a “creative” type of resume at all.

It has a clean, simple look, and is graphic efficient. It’s a bit unconventional, which I think is important. And it was a bit hard to come up with on my own, all those bullets just kept arising organically from the different things I’ve done.

It uses a nice uncluttered template with a different text color for each experience, which I find visually appealing. It follows the current style guidelines of the company I work for, and they have clearly indicated what should be varied within a job, so it’s been easy to change around and make it my own.

I prefer a single column layout over a two column or more column layout. This new template is easier to place with respect to white space and effects, as in the old one, and it is easier to read.

Being based in the UK, I am quite used to full-page cv’s, and for the first time I have seen ones with a bit more of a semi-transparent feel – a bit like this one. It also follows the european style I believe, which I feel is a good thing.

It’s essentially one page It presents a clean, uncluttered front. Now I have a few problems, as you can see. I’ve been out of work for a few years due to physical injuries. I have limited freedom, and am limited to what I can do.

I am able to fit more information since before, my resume was either 1 or 2 pages long. Now, with the new format, it’s all fit on one page. I no longer have to make myself jump back and forth from the work experience and education sections to the experience and skills sections.

There are no weird white spaces in the margins. That’s nice, and happens to be the way I like my resumes done. The design is visually appealing. Third, I know I can use this template to fit the job I want in the future.

It saves space (didn’t want to add a second page, or unnecessary responsibilities) and because my experience is pretty much everywhere (I work a regular 9-5 job and don’t have a college degree), I can say stuff like customer service and get away with it.

This template is simple yet still looks very professional. It adds a bit of chill to your resume’s design. This cv template is easy to edit. You can always go back and make changes to the template if you feel like it.

The main thing being that I can fit more information on less paper, which in my opinion, looks much nicer than the traditional bare-bones format. It also allows me to showcase my skills better, which I believe is important if I wanna work in a highly competitive field like investment banking.

And probably most importantly, it’s completely different than the boring, generic word-for-word-on-the-back-of-the-business-contact resumes I usually see.
