I think the main text is easier to read – a lot of resumes include long, wordy, overly-detailed bits of information. The design itself is visually appealing, modern, and not overused (a good thing, I think).
Plus I think since I don’t have much experience, a good resume should let my personality shine through.
There’s the simple fact that it’s clean – just like I want my documents to look. it’s aesthetically pleasing – not the usual “Ugly as Hell” type of ugly. Third, and probably most importantly, it allows me to put EVERYTHING on my resume that I want.
It’s easy to read/follow along with visual learners like myself who are used t look at stuff on computers or in magazines instead (like most people).
It’s simple to read/navigate:Nothing annoyingly flashy or “out there”Any text can be edited easily without changing formattingSecond – The title is concise & nicely crafty in contextThird– it stands out amongst competitionFourth-recruiters usually only request brief details about me (age group etc)firstly.
It follows the same color scheme as my standard cv (blue borders, white text). This makes it easy to find my resume when I put it on a lanyard or throw it in a backpack. It also makes the text pop, like it’s not just a blank slate.
I like how you can add a short description of a company just by changing a few lines. I like how each bullet point (job) gets its own bullet. I like how I can add languages skills under my certifications header.
I hope someone can help me: So many times I see resumes that have ugly layouts. This one is clean and straight to the point. A while back I had a couple of friends critique my resume and they said it was boring and didn’t tell a story.
It’s easy to read/follow along with visual layout alone without reading all those boring lines. – No more line spacing issues due tbody text defaulting back into normal form after creative alterations have been made (attempt #2 above). – My headings are clear enough where even small font adjustments don’t affect anything profoundly.
First off its clean & simple which is great if i’m filling out an application that will be viewed by someone other than myself or one person at most (companies wont spend much time looking beyond their first glance).
First off all those “Profile” sections are just too many to have underneath one text box (eg: Education – Qualification – Awards). Second is that with what looks like small margins between each section there isn’t enough white space on page either; though it does maintain legibility.
It looks so nice and is so simple to read.My main reason for choosing this template is due to the ability to customize it to whatever resume you put inside. Since I customize my resumes very often, I can quickly change the design if needed to (I already have one that I just made for this post).
It is very easy to read/scan. It is very professional looking, yet creative. And third, it highlights *everything* I have done very well. An example of what I am talking about would be the description for my role ‘Developed communication and cultural skills within an international unit’.
It looks clean – something that is important when you are looking to work in an international company with multiple countries involved (USA). My Name Here seems visually appealing as it stands out from other names without being too flashy or overbearing.
It eliminates the need to list my “skills” or describe my jobs – two major sources of confusion for me regarding my resume (which is fantastic).
First off, I’ve used a lot of templates in the past, and the usual “thin” design is one that I’ve disliked. Thicker, with more color, looks much more professional and is easier to read.Speaking of fonts.
I’m a bit concerned about ATS. If an ATS can’t read or parse my resume correctly, it will most likely kick me out.
I can fit more info on less space. It’s aesthetically pleasing as well. (Btw, I’m a photographer. I’ve seen pictures where the photographer stands around, takes pictures, and then sorts them and posts them on the internet for free. That’s not me.
My first worry was all those extra pages with responsibilities – after reading some tips on here though, most people seem split between having just one page or 2 in addition tp have additional columns/sections.
It’s incredibly easy to work with, is modern and clean, and the blue color is great for marketing (your employers will instantly know that you want to be looked at). My first issue is my work experience.
I feel like the main one is that it takes up less space than a typical “traditional” resume, and it doesn’t have a boring, plain look. Another reason I like it is because it’s the first time I’ve used a template to create a resume, and I’ve never been super happy with the results.
My old one was very boring – lotsus+tenses often – hence me being hired as an under-the table professional from doing entry level jobs such service coordination in warehouses/warehouses. (of course now i’m officially working legit). My other problem (which maybe it’s not that big) is when going over previous resumes to check references / where they studied.
It looks so clean and simple, and still has that smooth stroke that I love.
My new resume is a good 30-40% formatting overhaul, and the main change is a massive reduction in size, from 2 pages to
I think it looks professional — my name is in a nice circle, for example, and the type of content I include is generally consistent. It allows me to put experience in perspective, since different jobs have different levels of experience, and reinforce that.
It is very easy to read, I am right handed so it is a different perspective than many have.
It’s very minimalistic, yet still has that professional look. It’s written using a tiling template, which makes it look even better. It eliminates the need to put the same text under different headings under the same section. It allows me to list my education without the “expected graduation” line.
First off, I **do not** want to have to recreate my resume from scratch again, I’ve done that too many times already. I **do not** want to share a company I don’t want to list in public under my LinkedIn profile.
