Resumes have evolved a lot over the past 10 years. Back in the day, job seekers used to a present plain jane document with zero formatting and a simple list of qualifications. Maybe they’d throw in some bullet points here and there. Which in hindsight, is no different than simply handing in a general job app.
Millstone is the polar opposite. It can be used for any industry, but this mock up is tailored for a financial analyst. The outline does a tremendous job at displaying your core abilities on every level, especially those with a lot of leadership qualities.
You may have the squares in the skills section changed to reflect your competency levels by selecting the fill option and choosing the same color from the library.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It’s clean, simple, and it appeals to my sense of style. It’s formatted using a lot of bold and italicized words which I think will help make my cv stand out from the rest of the stack.
It’s simple yet modern looking to make it easy read. Second – To highlight specific experience depending on job application purposes:Heading Resume title (i wrote about myself). IIRC in olden times if you applied anywhere outside your home country xd, they would most likely ask waiting period before y interviews.
It’s completely different than the previous 4 versions I had of my resume. No more blatant “I’m just making up stuff on the fly here” now it’s completely formatted and clean. Easy to read, hard to get confused with all the words.
It has a very readable and straight to the point format, it fits in one page, and it looks great. The main reason I got rid of is because I read online it was kind of outdated, and not sure it was a good idea.
My old resume, being a 2 pages long, was very dated in my opinion, and looked like a toddler did it in a fit of pique when his toy got destroyed. This new resume, I think, is much more professional, and just looks better as a result.
It’s minimalist yet still stylistic in nature (something that is frowned upon nowadays), it highlights great body parts which gives off an overall good impression, etcThe main reason i’ve decided to include these extra documents on top are because they serve multiple purposes.
First, it looks like every other recent text-based interview/resume builder that is designed by someone with experience in professional recruiting ( Rezi ), LinkedIn Recruiter / Klearner.
It’s clean, simple, and structured, yet still attractive. It follows the latest (CS) style guidelines. It’s EDPI for those that care. And best of all, it’s free! No gimmicks, no smoke and mirrors. Just straight up information provided in a friendly, approachable, and helpful way.
It’s clean – something that is frowned upon in any event! Secondly it looks great on mobile phones whereas word or other programs tend to look ugly (unless they are pdf formatted).
It’s free! No gimmicks or tricks to be found hereFeel no pressure though.
It’s beautiful! The colors are bolder/less subtle than most templates i’ve seen which tend to be very black & white (think corporate gigs). Second is that unlike many CVs floating around on google from top-resume — mine actually looks like an actual CV with text blocks running down both sides instead.
First – it is easy to read, even for someone with limited experience. Second – Although traditional, it is aesthetically pleasing, and people have said it is visually appealing even to people with very diverse background.
It has no borders (no extra space texts can go). The text size is 10 pt with normal margins beside each line so everything stands out nicely regardlessof font style or color. -It fits all on one page rather than two like most professionals apparently do these days.
It’s clean – not the usual “analogous” mess of most resumes I’ve seen. And it’s direct – you get straight to the point and you tell us what you did. Let me know what you think.
First off, I’m happy with how my resume looks on a third party website. It looks very clean and polished. Next, I’m really enjoying putting together my experience. I think it feels good to finally quantify some of my experience.
It looks so nice and is so easy to read. Also, I’m really curious if any ATS systems are going to screw with the layout.
It’s a very clean resume, something I’m very proud of. It’s not the typical “fluffy” style, and that’s a good thing. It’s a one page resume.
I don’t have a lot of experience in a corporate setting, mostly because of the fact that I was starting a company from scratch. I was also going through a stressful time in my life and couldn’t dedicate the time necessary to get a job in a corporate environment.
It looks so clean, and it’s so amusing to look at. My old resume looked like a laundry list of corporate names with “organization name” and “job title” three times each. This new resume looks like I’ve done nothing for the past five years except study and work.
It keeps me from repeating myself too much in long sections (I’m listing skills & experiences at least once every three or four years), it looks cleaner than any other way that i’ve seen them presented here before. And lastly – since most field managers won’t be looking directly @ top level position resumes directed toward their specific needs.
I think the first is that I’m pretty sure it’s the first time a truly ATS optimized resume has been created. No other templates I’ve found just display information across a text field, which can make quickly switching between templates difficult. Also, the design is clean and modern, not a wacky Times New Roman kind of thing.
It looks so neat, not like most templates I have seen which look very busy and not creative at all. It’s so clean and simple, something that any average joe can look at and get caught up in. No memes, no nonsense, no pain.
I have cut out quite alot from original CV due to running short on space (was trying not too make it look like an art project). This is really just based upon what experience i had in IT / help desk environments.
The first and most important is that it is visually appealing as hell. No more tired, bland, plain-looking resumes. Just looking at it makes me want to buy some blueprints and build some machinery.The second reason is that it is ATS friendly. Almost all modern template-based ATS systems can handle this format. Almost.
The first is the coloring – it looks so nice! I can’t wait to see what you guys think of the rest of it. I’m going to be using it to apply at local tech companies, as well as some larger ones.
The main being it looks clean, stands out, and is easily readable. Second it would help me out a lot with making a functional resume since it is necessary to list skills in a sentence, not a list of skills all the way down the page.
There is no obnoxious “filler” of sections like you see in most templates I’ve seen.
First and foremost, I **knew** I was going to do this exact thing at some point. ** So I Googled “modern resume template” and I was presented with so many different formats I didn’t know what to do.
It saves you tons (tens)of characters while still looking nice:And it allows me to fit everything on 1 page insteadof wasting away whitespace with useless information that nobody will ever care about anyway.
I feel like the main body of my resume fits better together, rather than me trying to fill in the space by breaking up the sections into subsections like I had been doing. The main body of my resume fits nicely onto one page, rather than the old format where it was three sections spread out over two pages.
I don’t like how stuck I was in my old one, and I was always left with the feeling that my accomplishments were fairly pointless unless I were leaving big companies. Plus, this new template feels much more approachable. It’s definitely not a 1-size-fits-all-template, which is a good thing.
I think it’s very clean. I think it’s very conscious. I think it’s very effective. Now my question is this. I am unsure of how to list my education for my degree.
I feel like it’s very clean and easy to read, and it doesn’t get cluttered even though I have a lot of experience.
First off, it’s very minimalistic which feels right; getting out there is important. Secondly has gaps between its sections–a good thing in 2016! It will be passed around hopefully at work soon.
I was able to include all the important info (education, certs, careers, etc) on one page, and still keep the previous formatting. I think this is a must for all job seekers. I would love to hear what you guys think of it.
It looks so clean and readable, it’s nice and minimal, and it pumps the life back into my resume. Bonus points for using a consistent size font, and **keeping it clean** without adding extra crap to the page! I’m hoping I can get my first web development job with this style resume, especially since I already have some relevant projects and experience.
It’s awesome! It works well on mobile too if you enable PDF uploading. * Every detail is accountedfor: experience (job title), education level when there are differences in levels like highschool vs college.
It’s inspired by an awesome work from KSai in which she gives us her “dressing” or summary/personal info first before showing all artworks (which is what most people do). This makes sense to me as someone who has worked primarily freelance & Indievally with clients if their interests were unknown based on past experience etc.
I think it looks nice, being a pure black and white, 0.Brightness, design, typography, etc. In my opinion it stands out a little bit.I added the “Hobbies and Interests” section I found a nice mix between professional and personal.
I don’t like having a “Skills” section – it’s boring and I feel like most skills are covered well in my relevant experience. I don’t like the “Experience” section because I’ve read a lot of stuff on here about how bland that section is, and I agree.
Number 1, it stands out from the rest of the applications that I am applying.
I noticed an overuse of the “keywords” idea. Many of the online reviews and online job postings suggested that I should have a “Keywords” section where I listed word or words that should be emphasized for a specific job. I am attempting to apply for 2 completely different industries (IT vs.
It looks very visually appealing, it’s clean (no more columns! Woo!), and it’s executed really well. Let’s take a look.
First off, I’m tired of starting from scratch on every resume. Saving time and having the resume done correctly (cleanly, concise explanations, etc.) saves a ton of time, which means more money to spend onenture.
It’s clean, uncluttered, and focuses on achievements/skills instead of mundane daily tasks. It also comes with a professional picture that’s also a smart move. I’m not the best at composing my own personal photos, so I’d definitely welcome a few pointers or a critique.
It looks so professional, the dark background helps hide mistakes and inconsistencies in formatting (like bold letters and spacing that is a bit too wide), and since I’m going for a more creative resume, it helps hide some of my personal information from the average eye.
For one, it is so easy to read/follow. since it is a designer/web resume, it allows me to include more content than a standard plain text resume. And lastly, it allows me to include my online activities (since many people believe LinkedIn is a required part of the job application process).
It is very easy to read/follow/follow, unlike the old one which was very difficult to read/follow/follow. Also, the cv design is really eye-catching, and isn’t just a simple line-by-line description of the job.
First is that having spaces between words makes me think hard before going forward instead waiting to see if they fit together as intended – which happens more often than expected. -Secondly being able type short paragraphs easily without worrying about so many accidental key-words leads naturally into next point.
Reasons I love it: Simple is awesome. I feel like a lot of the resumes that people create are so full to the point where it’s almost not seeing anything. This template is simple, yet still brings out the personality. Not many templates with photos on them. It’s a single page.
I got my old cv from an international job fair, and was quite impressed by how well it summarised my experience. My info was obviously formatted differently, and I had to interpret it myself, which didn’t help me get past the online application.
My old resume was just a wall of text at the top of my resume, and it was just too much to read. By using a template like this one, I was able to cut down the amount of text I write without the information getting too farcical, and still being able to make it make sense.
I think it looks very clean and minimal – a things a priority. I think it looks very cool so far, and it’s got me thinking about the look of my new cv, and what I want my overall resume to look like. In addition, I think it’s very versatile.
I have a very non-traditional family situation, with multiple children living with us and us working around the clock 116 hours a day. My SO is the primary breadwinner, and I help him with the wife’s job, children’s school, and when we move, I help with the move as well.
Formatting! Second: it makes me think about what each job title means/means in relation to marketing beyond just listing broad fields (which is all most resumes do). And third.
It’s clean & organized (something which was once problematic with previous resumes), it offers plenty in terms on personal development tips given throughout various media sources/blogs etc.
I’m on the fence about the style and size of the texts. I’m currently using a “summary” style and all the pieces of info are 1/3 the size of a regular resume.
It saves me from having to cut and paste the same information multiple times, and since I have an education focus, it keeps employers from thinking I’m only good at what I do in school.
It’s beautiful! Secondly (and more importantly) It saves me timeI don’t have to worry about if i’m formatting correctly everytime they change Word/languages on their computers. Instead just update what file. And optimize harddrive spaceUse windows 7 & up.
It looks clean because it doesnt contain as much color – something that always bothered me about resumes before is alluring text on colorful background While working in politics i stayed away from flashy ones (too many colors) That being said. This format seems extremely adaptable to individual applications etc.
You don’t have to put your contact info in bullet points anymore! No table-jumping necessary 🙂 Second reason is that alot nowadays resumes are just rehashed old CV’s with more buzzwords thrown on top without much thought as wether or not an application would benefit from them unless it was already stated somewhere (in informal cover letters especially).
First off, it makes me feel confident going into an interview knowing that everything will be recorded. Secondly its extremely clean & simple to read Thirdly there actual mentions on accomplishments instead just tasks done which is very refreshingFourth thing — It comes pre-loaded with skills like Microsoft Office.
I think the first reason is that I like the way its structured, each section being a key reading and able to stand on it’s own without being overly intrusive. The second is that it mirrors the reading of the job I am applying for like a mirror, making the text easy to read and improving readability.
It feels clean (as in not cluttered) yet is still attractive. (.
I teamed up with a friend, in our small college town, using this exact template. We went around to companies courting the most amount of job offers possible, and we both applied to the same companies at different times. We both got a lot of callbacks, and I don’t think there was ever any competition.
It’s very clean unlike most out there now!Second & more importantly It focuses on what you’re trying to say not how much information is placed in each category.
First of all, I think it looks nice — no more black lines! I’m a creative, and a lot of my ideas are very functional. When I design, I try to focus on form and design and making it look nice.
I didn’t have to use a template. I dislike that I have to change the style every time I get a new job. I like that it’s a one page resume. I’ve always been told to keep it one page or it gets ignored. In addition, I like that it’s accurate.
It’s so minimalist. No unnecessary crap from the company of the last paragraph. No more stupid little lines that are either too far apart or too close together. It’s all on one page now, which I love. And third, it’s so professional.
It’s clean – No more “filler” lines and text. I’m sure many of you hate the look of these random lines showing, especially if you have a lot of “filler” text.
I hope the content is sound, concise, and appealing. With that, I’m off to good start! 🙂 *Fixed font in photographs, and omitted few items to expand, and make them fit to one page.
Mostly, it’s the layout that I am most in favor of. I’ve read several conflicting views on resume layout, and now I’m conflicted too. It’s not typical.
It is very easy to read. It is very legible. And third, it is not a wall of text like the old one. In this image I show you what I mean. The old resume was a muddy mess of different fonts, with weird bullet points and big ugly spaces. No thanks to this one.
My old one was very industry specific (looked like an ad copy), lotss keywords/phrases slapped on it to pass automated screenings without any thought as too “important” or long-lastingFor some reason i felt that showing off individual projects more accurately reflects ability than does putting all those short term positions in(what we call System Administrator here).
I like how the template is minimalistic, yet colorful. It also allows me to fit all the work experience in, while still fitting each position onto 2 pages. The template also makes it easy to fit in all the skills and languages I have.
My old resume looked like it was constructed in a different time period and was very “flashy”. Other than that, I haven’t done a major resume update since I started 10 years ago.
I looked at some templates online, and some of them are really ugly.
I’m hoping it will help me stand out from the pile of other resumes that are clearly just put here to get a few more dollars and last a little bit longer. I’m hoping it will help me get my foot in the door for interviews.
I tried to follow the advice of the pros (on google) and eliminate irrelevant information. I’m confident in the design, and I think it’s professional and clean.
