I think it’s very visually appealing. I think it’s very conscious and refreshing — not a cluttered, clutty resume. Third, it’s extremely flexible. You can use it for non-journalistic, non-media jobs.

For one, it makes your CV (resume) look a lot more consistent and organized. It’s also very minimalist, which I like, and doesn’t cause issues when upping the file size on LinkedIn. Another reason I like this template is because it allows you to showcase more of your skills and previous accomplishments.

I like to be able to quickly see what information I probably should include on a given job, based on the description alone. I also like that it allows me to show a little bit of everything, while still keeping things under two pages.

It’s very clean! (no more ugly bars) There are no columns to move around in when adding/removing jobs so it stays placed nicely whenever i add or remove some contentIt saves me literally 10 seconds instead of spending 20+ minutes writing long paragraphsNow if you guys can please go ahead an give your opinions on what could be changed / left out.

It’s very clean and minimal, yet still boasts a lot of content. It allowed me to fit all my relevant experience in a single page. It allowed me to fit all my professional experience (which isn’t necessarily relevant to my new career) on a single page.

It saves you from having to post your work history on each individual job site when uploading multiple resumes (ahem – helloooo).

I hope you guys love it as well. #1 A clean cv looks nice no matter what background color it is. No gray lines where it doesn’t need to be there. No gray areas where it looks like it might be too much text. #2 It’s easy to parse.

My old resume was just too bland, eye catching, and boring. With this one, I was able to really stand out and make myself feel like the hero I always wanted to be. No more do I have to constantly explain who I am. No more do I have to strain under the slightest bit of pressure.

It saves me from having to write an essay every time i apply somewhere (i’m looking at you airlines). Also it helps avoid potential problems when sending CV’s abroad through email because with most companies they only share info within company e-mails which makes copy/paste difficult.

There are no columns. That’s right, no more bedding-in your resume by columnzees. Nuff said. There are no plain-text interrupting **headings. ** For the most part, headings are exactly what they sound like: concise lists of information.

I hope whoever is reading this does too!this cv template is MUCH nicer than all the rest I’ve found online. The previous ones all look like what I have now which is pretty boring!I like that it is ATS friendly. I feel like this is a big factor for me when I am applying to jobs.

I hope you guys love it too!* Simplicity – this cv is very simple, to the point and fast-moving. It’s clean, direct and straight-to-the-point. I think this is a great style for new CS graduates, and if you see this style, it means my resume is probably good.

I hope someone can help me highlight my experience for the jobs I’m looking at. I’m looking at entry level jobs in a few different fields. One thing I’m struggling with is how best to write about my own background.

It looks so professional, and the blue is very effective. I noticed that when I open with G suite, and then some of the applications, like Job-Site, and use outlook, when I go to edit or make changes, it NEVER lets me.

It saves me literally tons (tens or hundreds) of time compared to just writing out each job/accomplishment again. ) it looks clean as hell . Everything is within easy reach. Until you click on “more”, where all those bullet points are listed like an HTML table with headings matching up exactly3.

I’m not putting my old resume on the internet. It had way too much info squeezed onto one page, and it was way too big in both font and text. I’m also trying to keep it as simple as possible, without using too many graphics or fonts.

It has that professional yet fun feel left over from those high school/college years when i was actually playing with style & form (graphic font etc. The “Interests” section is another winner – its cleanly formatted, lets you focus on your most relevant experience first as opposed to fluff in an attempt at being creative.

My old resume was (to put it mildly) dated, plain, and boring. Compared to this, the new resume is visually appealing, and it beats the heck out of my previous resume when it comes to ATS compatibility.

First off, I’m not stuck with just a regular black and white, Times New Roman kind of resume anymore. I’m not stuck only looking reasonable.

My old one was just a plain black n word, not greyscale. The little icons for each job were just regular shapes, not that fucked up pie charts you see on most resumes. And the little text notes at the job sites were just the usual stuff you would put there. NOTHING about the medical field.

It’s not overdoing it, and it’s not too boring. It’s subtle, yet vibrant. It’s also blue on the right, which is nice. It’s not black.

I like how it allows me to list my professional experience in one nice, clean, even sheet. I like that it allows me to break down my experience by each of the companies I’ve worked for, which I know will help when talking to potential employers.

It looks great on a tabbed-in, high-contrast cv sheet. I used a “fancy” template (I like to think it’s unique) that is reflected in the layout. The content is easily parsed by automated systems.

# It is minimalist without being barren; each heading has only what i think are relevant information to that type/job title (no essays or fluff).

The main thing I like is that it looks clean, and doesn’t try to be fancy. It’s not a resume for the “cool kid in school” to get a tech internship. It’s a practical resume, meant for people who may not have the same experience/education/skill set as someone looking for a tech internship.

My old resume was just a plain black and white, two column, gray text design that I had scraped together. It was BORING. This new resume is a very appealing grey color, with a border that is gray as well. It’s easy to read, and the words are nicely spaced out.

My old resume was a mess, and I had to rewrite a lot of it. It was hard to condense everything on one page, while still providing a reasonable description of everything that i did. The summary was also a little ambiguous.

It is creative! Aesthetically pleasing with its dark grey color scheme (I know many people say that black should be avoided on your CV). Secondly it looks sleek in addition to realistically presenting skills from experience – something which employers increasingly expect*.

The first is a functional resume that shows off my skills, and secondly, it’s so incredibly simple. No longer will I have to look at a wall of text trying to impress someone. Just focus on the awesome 8-bit graphics and the content at hand.

It’s very minimal, yet still looks professional. It keeps the same font size for each job, which is nice for filtering purposes if you have a little bit of space. This, too, looks very professional.

It’s very structured. And finally, it’s very effective at selling my experience. In addition, I’m thinking of using this same template for a few other jobs that I’m considering, mainly in the area of sales and account management.

No nonsense graphics or anything crazy lol. Second & most importantly it allows me to put everything on one page which is awesome because:-I have little experience in IT / Project management so putting all that stuff onto two pages was wasting space-it saves tons (easily up 50% ) data type with just 1page instead.

The first is the way the sections flow, it’s like your trying to put together a puzzle with each section representing a big idea or a big skill. the way the categories work is a LOT more intuitive than the old “pallet of lasers” system.

It uses a traditional uni typeface, not the typical weird looking ones you see on here. it uses the italic style for everything instead of the typical bold/italic pair. In addition, and most importantly, I can make it more minimalist while still being readable.

Secondly – being one page resumes aren”t necessarily *required* in Tech/Science related fields where you might have to tailor depending on which job application gets your foot into door.

It looks nice, it’s simple, and it allows me to fit all the info on 1 page. It also helps that I’m still continuing my education, as most positions in my field require a degree (and me spending another two years doing IT stuff is not something I want to pass onto anyone).

It beats the current plain format cv by A LOT. It is a one page, clean type format, which is ideal for an engineer. It is designed for an active, curious, creative career seeker looking to combine exceptional creative writing skills with cutting edge technical skills and abilities.

It’s just so freaking beautiful; I love how it flows like a book. It allows me to flesh out my experience *and* give more details about what I did in my previous jobs; it feels so important to give specific examples of what my previous employers were thinking when they hired me.

I know my experience really well, and I want to communicate that. It was hard for me to “show” what I’ve done because I’ve done a lot of things, and I don’t know a lot about. The creative preview makes it look a little.
