Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds. Well, without a good resume, most of the time, nothing improves in a career.

At its core, Saxton was designed to capture the attention of employers—mainly due to its choice of earth-tone colors and clever table placement. Ideal for jobseekers that have a bunch to say, it provides enough room for just about any area of expertise you can think of.

(Retain its minimalist look as is, or throw in a few more background colors other than brown to spice things up some.)

With the 3 columned bullets under your executive summary, you can list off your hard skills, change the line spacing, and the text’s font face.

Don’t like the brown table background? Tweak the colors, change to a preset diagonal gradient if you want, and add flourishes or dashes to the outside border.

Seem too basic still? Get ideas from the extensive category library.

Switch the checkered shaped to a shade or pattern you like best from word’s fill effects options.

We’ve also included simple icons, images, and wordart in the download pack you can insert to liven up the resume a bit.
