Horizontally sized, multiple boxes act as distinctive section dividers. Between each box, headings with nicely spaced letters give each of Retro Canny’s 3 pages pretty clean typography.

Obviously initially made for experienced professionals because of the tremendous amount of space it provides, Retro Canny can be expanded to as many pages as you need, or shortened down to one page.

Listed first in the sample is a long summary of qualifications, where you can emphasize as many key points as you need to. Take a look at the red outside borders, matching it’s corresponding heading.

While maintaining it’s core-functional formatting, the template switches from an eggshell backdrop to a white backdrop to provide further contrast and distinction between sections.

If you have a degree in progress, under current education you can use the same wording as shown in the sample above. Don’t forget to specific the amount of college credits you’ve obtained thus far, along with your major and minor if you’ve declared already.

It saves me visually writing long descriptions everytime (IIRC that’s what HR reps are looking at) it gives specific examples rather than general bullets about skills etcThat leads us to.

It looks clean, organized, and allows me to fit all the relevant info on one page (instead of two, as is the case with most resumes I see). It’s simple, yet effective. It doesn’t try to be fancy or “unique” — just focused on the important details.

I have always been a bit of a confused person when it comes to resumes, as I feel they are a strange hybrid of an application and a piece of art. As most of my peers were getting their degrees and I was stuck in customer service, I never fell in love with writing or with the art itself.

It makes my resume fit completely on one page. Most people’s resumes are always so packed that you can hardly read the damn thing, and it rarely even makes it to a second page. Since it’s one page, I can fit more keywords in it.

Reasons I think they’re important: – I’m a huge believer in minimalism, and I think that’s especially so in resumes. Any client communication will occur through the recruiter, not me.

I like the way the icons for each of the sections look – they are simply eye-catching and I think get the point across well. I like that the cv is still single-page, and doesn’t try to cram too much stuff in there. It is a good size, and not too wordy.

It looks clean, nice and uncomplicated, and still has that familiar Harvard template look. My previous resume was multiple pages long and had lots of random info that wasn’t relevant at all to the jobs I was applying for.

It’s the most minimalist, and readable resume I’ve seen! It’s so simple, you won’t even believe it. You will believe it. It’s extremely useful for efficiently sharing information.

I didn’t have to cut and paste job responsibilities. I didn’t have to list experience in chronological order. My experiences are either all related or all related to each other. I didn’t have to list my education. I could list my education, then responsibilities with coursework.

It’s a clean, plain design, which is nice if you’re applying to a creative field or something (like me). The info and flair fields are separate, which is nice if you’re applying to a business-related or technical position (like me).

It makes your resume stand out. It helps you stand out when applying for jobs out of state. Third, it helps you stand out when applying for jobs within your local area who might not have the best reputation. Fourth, <it; is a bit cleaner than the typical <etc company logo.

It allowed me to fit all my valuable work experience in one page without sacrificing important sections (I knew my experience was valuable because I received a raise almost immediately after I started working there, and this increased the value of my experience).

It’s very similar to a MS Word template, which is something IAK 3000+ in every category.

First off its clean – another thing i really value in job applications is that they should look “clean”. Secondly it allows me to put all topics under one main header instead put everything into two separate sections (such as experience/responsibilities etc).

Saved me a ton of time – I only have to update my contact info and my current position since the last time I updated my resume, and the other info is the same. # I can fit more of the information on the page.

My old resume was just a plain black and white, two column, PowerPoint-y mess. This one shows me how to list honors and activities, plus pays respects to the design industry (albeit facetiously) by using a strong color scheme. It’s also been slimmed down to a single page, which I’m really confident will help the professional, yet lively feel.

It saves me what would have been multiple pages to upload individually in most cases. It looks clean (no ugly borders or weird scroll bars), each section can be quickly skimmed through if needed based on context rather than reading like an outline/template does.

There is almost no overlap in what job I am looking for. since I am going to be applying to tech companies, I want to make the focus on my skills, almost as much as if not more than my experience.

It looks so clean and crisp, while also allowing enough room for projects and education. My old resume looked like a mess – too much stuff for too little space, and it wasn’t easy to read/navigate. This new template doesn’t have that problem.

It’s simple — one page instead a half-dozen easy to read columns!Second is that each job has been well fleshed out with specific examples from real work experience. – You can tailor your CV layout according tot he jobs you’re applying too see fit (ie by changing between paragraphs/bullets).

The design is different – I wanted something that was simple and modern, that showed off my ATS as I usually submit in ms word format. I wanted to add a professional image of myself.

I don’t want to post the actual template (file:///C:/Users/cchri/Downloads/Blue_Print_Template_NEW/BPM_Template_NEW. pdf) because I want to keep it this way for best results. I also don’t want to give away my exact position.

I think the visual aspect of a resume is important. I believe that my previous resume looked very “boring”, with very little personality. I think a visual resume is much more appealing than a text-only one, and makes your resume stand-out in the pile of other resumes that are also stuck in the filter.

My old resume was very traditional, in a random order. This one is much more functional.

I always get confused on what fonts are fonts, and which format is better for resumes, and I always get confused when I see a weird combination of fonts and formats. My old resume used a very traditional. Docx format, and most of the fonts had only one style. My new resume uses.

I’m not a native english speaker, so I felt it necessary to add a bit of scissor-work to make the resume readable. I wanted to use red to create a bit of contrast with the white background. I didn’t want the background to be exclusively white. In addition, I wanted to emphasize my foreign name.

I hope it does for you too. Here are reasons why I think it’s awesome: It’s interactive. You can make changes right now and it’s actively being updated. It’s simple and clean. No more ugly table rows or columns. Simple and clean – you can easily parse it. The template is amazing: it looks like a real book, it’s clean, minimal, and nicely spaced. It’s easy to read, and the information is easy to pick out.

It’s very easy to read; every line is only one of many lines in the document, and the readability/coloring of the text is deliberate. No more beachball-gaping at top of page. It’s very easy to turn into a book.

Most of the templates I found online had a really bland, almost comic book like style. It has a very classic appearance, and that i love. This cv is much more centered around work experience and whatnot, which is what I’m looking for.

My old resume was a mess of many, many, many fonts. I had used a very common (according to my HR) serif font for my text, and it looked very unprofessional.

It’s totally different from any other resume I’ve ever seen before. Not only that, it’s amazing how simple and yet incredibly eye catching it is. I think it might be the “wow” factor talking here. Most of the values here are very important to me, and I know most people would agree.
