Morsel is a resume that automatically brings out a ton of ingenuity in anyone. It’s first page, along with its sample letterhead page both share the same appealing header. Of course, you can edit and/or customize it further in microsoft word.

  • It comes with two specialized fonts that polish the design very well, along with a large bundle of 60+ vector icons that match the layout coloring and appearance.

Show off your marketing expertise by personalizing the branding statement, summarizing the positive qualities you possess, or go with a general objective and let your experience quantify your qualifications.

Give your social media links more style by adding a matching icon next to each hyperlink.

Decorative lines give this layout a classic look without taking anything away from its monochrome styling too.

Did you know Morsel comes with a large pack of 100s of monochromatic toned icons and vectors? You can easily insert and drop them into the design.

It’s beautiful! Secondly, It beats all those that use tables to display information ( A table has more space between each cell while maintaining proper sizing throughout ) And lastly. Totally sucks in terms use.

I think it’s very interesting to see how other people design their resumes, and cool as well! I really like the fact that it’s very structured. I’m used to handing people’s resumes one word at a time, not in a word document.

My old one was very plain looking (text-only), black & white with no bold or italics – an eyesore even worse than usual at first glance. * The wordiness! This thing is chock full o’ words!! Which isn’t always best.

First is that it looks like every other Word document on an employer’s desk; no more ugly horizontal lines to worry about getting messed up in somebody else’s update later (also nice when you need formatting help). The text size isn’t large enough where even small font changes arenoticeable.

It looks so neat on paper (I don’t think photos work well in general). Secondly, it allows me to put all sorts and typesof stuff onto its pages. You can do word-perfect or really weird shit like adding pictures from your middle fingers together with smileys & hearts etc.

My previous resume looked like a wall of text, which was confusing and not eye-catching. The new cv template uses a simple format, and allows me to fit my work experience better. It has become habit to do small revisions to the old resume, to make it current and eye-catching.

No weird spacing or margins to deal with outside business trips/family vacations that could introduce errors if someone opened one in some countries (I’m looking at you Malaysia). It also helps avoid any employment gaps since all travel is outof town / temporary work.

It’s so simple; it reads well, and doesn’t pique the interest of the eye. It doesn’t draw you in with flashy colors and posters. It’s a fresh new look, a little less flashy, and (I think) a bit more professional. it’s done in InDesign, which I love.

It saves me from having to parse through paragraphs explaining what each experience was about — something that could really ramp up an already long resumes. * Most importantly: it looks clean! There’s just no way around saying “this job involved A” or listing every company name under which you worked. Even if they were all very short-lived (which most weren’t).

It’s organized according to content (education first on top). This is smart because when you have years worth education separated by sections like languages & levels etc., looking at year 3 right away isn’t helpful as each one does stand out nicely its own way if grouped randomly.

It saves me 2400 characters (I’m in european country) since google docs doesn’t allow that long filetype ) Also it gives creative control to each job position/cornerstone etc. As you can see there are big companies like amazon who use their own format which is really hard put into words without looking comic book-like or too typical.

The first is it matches so many different job descriptions that come your way when you Google “modern resumes”.

It saves me 2400+ characters to add/remove items (from 10-12k), in addition it still looks clean despite getting several job changes since undergrad like promotions etc.

I don’t like how wordy my resume is, and second, this new template makes it easier to zero in on the good stuff in my skills section without having to “wrestle” with the sentences and word choice in my descriptions.

First is that it’s functional: you can actually see what information on your page was parsed from its parent container (the text area). An inspiration to me as far writing goes when designing modules in mate.

It saves me space (I didn’t want to waste any color or text on unimportant positions), it allows more headings per page which can help when printing is involved (~2 pages worth maximum in our weird one-page type system) And best.

My old resume looked like it was waiting for the client to determine if they want a Jr. , Mid, or Senior level employee. The old resume didn’t even have a profile or summary area. The new resume puts those in the profile and summary area, and puts the rest of the resume in the work experience area.

Firstly it looks like every other word in CV land – consistent, clean & clear. Secondly its color scheme is nice (blue text on grey background).

Firstly it looks very clean on paper (no wild graphics that might distract from experience). Secondly ,it’s designed to fit nicely in an A4 page – something i always despise since spacing is so important when you’re writing **sof**word-long descriptions.

It saves me 2400 total characters (more or less), it fits in 1 page instead of 2 pages without sacrificing content/feelings ,and most importantly. It looks nice! No more “joke” thinning out your CV with extra crap text at questionable locations resulting from pasting over multiple times file:// /home2/#CVTextFormattingWith that said.

I think the first reason is that my previous format was very traditional and boring. I got my resume down to one page by removing quite a bit of information.

It’s so much easier to organize everything cleanly. No more messy, scary columns! Just a simple table with some nice, simple, clean lines.

I am aware of recruiter’s concerns/top seconds’ thoughts about blank resumes. My old resume was wordy and looked like a dog’s ass. My name is practically unpronounceable

First off, there are so many graphic design-oriented people out there (GIS/geology/Map design, UX/UI designers, etc.

It saves me 4000 characters and it is very easy to read. I especially like the way the text is shaped, like it flows like a comic book.

It’s a LOT less cutesy than my old style, and that’s a good thing. I think there are some important details about me that aren’t always important in a ‘work experience’ resume, so I like to be a bit cheeky with it.

It follows the recent Google standard of using a simple form-style layout for admin and executive jobs. It’s a bit more “clean” — I try to avoid a lot of noise and excess, and this shows. Third, it’s a bit more professional than my earlier designs, which I did while in college.

I personally think the “profile” section looks nice and is not overdone. Thanks.

It was an exact replica of the template. It was boring. This one is simple and straight to the point. My old resume was talking about every little thing I did. This one is very concise. My old resume had a picture of me in a suit. This one doesn’t.

I noticed a trend – people tend to use templates that look like they are copy/pasting from a template. Not knowing any better, I bought into the trend.

The first and most important is that it looks so clean and gives a definite finish to my resume. Often times I found that IT guys and women are so wordy and infodump and I found myself skipping over this part because it just looked silly.

It’s clean – two, it’s a lot less “exposed” than my old one, which was also very “exposed” (in a bad way).

The template is so visually appealing; it looks so clean and yet still flashy. I find the template allows me to fit all the relevant information on one page which in the past landed me some pretty embarrassing-looking resumes (I even had a friend from school look at my resume and comment that it was ugly.

It’s simple and clean, not a drag queen re-do job. It takes up very little space on the page, because you aren’t forced to read paragraph after paragraph of work experience. Benefits – You get to the point quicker, and the content is clean and easy to read
