Nimble-Witted starts by listing your education at the top of its right table column. Often chosen by executive assistants and similar administrative roles, its a template that uses large headers above their respective sections.
The graphics represent two primary areas of strength of your choosing; with bar graphs stacked on top of one another and pie charts placed adjacently.
Sift through the writing guide for instructions on how to edit the pie chart data in word. It only takes a few seconds, just right click and follow the edit data function.
As all core-functional CV’s should, it begins the second page by displaying your employment history detail; in this case we used two mirrored columns shown above to list your prior employers & position titles.
Swap out the bio area for a branding statement if it better suits you, or scratch that section entirely and toss in a quick summary of your qualifications.

Your input is very much appreciated .
My old resume was very bare bones. It was just a few lines of my experience, education and experience. The old resume didn’t even have a professional summary.
I feel like a lot of the other templates I’ve seen are just *trendy*, and I feel like mine is *unlike* any of those. It’s very “Achievement-focused”.
It’s very refreshing to not have a boring, bland resume on the side of the file. in regards to formatting, it’s very easy to read and follow. Third, I can adjust the typeface to make it easy to read in both color and text format.
I’m not the best at “selling myself”, so to speak, so I really try to think of a great sales pitch for myself. This is my first time trying a true ATS template, and I’m really impressed. Before trying this template, my resume was very mid-range and kind of boring looking.
It looks clean, has a well-organized layout, and is only two pages. I’m currently working in a highly toxic area of engineering, and the cv inspired me to want to get out. It will be interesting to see how this type of cv is perceived in the engineering field.
Reasons I think are a plus:My resume used to be black and white and gaudy looking with poor font choice. It made me look short of everything while huge of everything else seemed huge of me. I feel like with this new template I’ve made a lot of improvement to the look and feel.
I don’t like the previous experience section at the bottom, it just kind of floats there and isn’t used. I can now add my recent development experience (I’ve updated my software development skills along the way), and it looks clean and organized.
I originally read here that you should leave relevant coursework out of your resume, only include things that are relevant to the position you’re applying for. Well, after using this template, I am completely reworking my resume.
It’s extremely readable, I can’t tell the difference between what’s actual information and filler from the company. It’s very simple, there isn’t that “thick” font that makes people put their picture on their resume (I’m looking at you Google)
The main part that I’m not sure about is the project section. I heard that projects are sometimes ignored, so I wanted to put a few projects on there to prove that I can do projects.
It looks clean – something that wasn’t easy to get with even previous resumes.
I was able to include my skills in an organized fashion, I was able to cut down on unneeded details, and I was able to even cut down on the amount of words.
It’s very minimalist, and that’s a good thing. A resume should be simple and easily readable. It has a nice layout. It’s full-grey, so it’s not overused and doesn’t give off a “cold” grey color.
It’s simple: no columns or horrid little lines showing every bit as you can see in moderncv today; none that aren’t meant to be there (yet).
It is simple yet eye-catching; perfect if you are on very brief notice (old gig didn’t ask me to stick around much after their contract ended).
I think the dark blue is very eye catching. I think the one column format with a dark purple header and unique color of each section is eye catching. Third, the header alone is very eye catching. Lastly, the paragraph format with the unique color of each section is also very eye catching.
I was tired of seeing mostly the same resume used again and again – so I like that I can pick and choose which jobs I want to submit. I like that it feels clean and contemporary, yet still old-fashioned.
First off it looks great! These kinds of templates are clean & simple which is something that can get lost in temp agencies or found on sites like Monster/Craigslist.
The first being that I loved the “levels” analogy the original graphic designer had.
I’m confident that if I keep this style, it will end up in the top 25, and possibly the top 50, of job search results for my resume. It’s simple and clean, and it doesn’t look like a wall of text.
I don’t want to do a full page, because I’m not sure that I really need it. Plus I heard a few services only do that, so I don’t want to be denied out of hand an interview because they think my cv is too long.
There’s the color, it’s bold and beautiful and stands out nicely against the black of my resume. I think the chevron/arrows pattern is visually appealing.
It’s beautiful! Don’t know how anyone with normal vision does resumés like that. And secondly. It highlights some awesome achievements in each position which can be hard to see during an interview without powerpoint or on bad pdf viewer (like google docs).
First off, I don’t think I’ve ever had a “professional” cv before.
I think the way the sections are set up, most people will read the contents of the sections before skimming over the resume itself. This makes sense to me, as it saves space if you’re only applying to a few places. I like how sections are named.
It’s very easy to read. Every line is looking like a big white block of text, and that’s not a bad thing. In fact, readability is a good thing. Every line of my resume is either exactly one line or two lines long.
I really like the ability to include my freelance work (which is almost always relevant to my job). I think it’s neat that in my latest job, I’m the only person at my company who can speak Russian.
