Your input is very much appreciated .
It saves you from having to go back through each bullet point several times in order make sure your bullets are all grammatically accurate (a common problem with individual sentences). Also like many people before me*, ive found that most job postings want their applicants instead applying via email or Linked In which ends up being very repetitive looking since everyone does it slightly different.
It looks so professional, being that I have no bad habits or glaring mistakes on it. It also provides a blank template for me to fill in my projects, or skills if I don’t have enough to fill the page. My previous resumes have always felt very similar, having to balance between project and job sections.
The first off the bat, is it just feels so clean. I feel like when I opened my word doc, it looked so clean and I can definitely tell the difference in the way I run my resume and what my resume looks like (I don’t want to use a crappy template though).
It saves me from having to cut and paste sections back and forth in my CV, and it keeps my CV concise while still detailing achievements. It also allowed me to fit all my previous irrelevant job experience onto a single page, which was a definite need considering my previous jobs had nothing to do with my career.
It’s beautiful! Second: It uses ‘drawings’ instead of simply showing text; which some companies / recruiters might like (I found out otherwise). Thirdly because when you make your CV online from Word/InDesign etc.
It’s very clean / simple. It follows an “old reliable” style which didn’t make any sense to me anymore after reading some recent threads on here about visual resumes.
It: Reduce number of “tabs” forward Lets me put more of what I’m actually working on here. Lets me fit all the best achievements in the first page. Lets me fit all my projects and relevant skills in the first page.
My old resume looked like a random mess, and while it did get a few bites, it wasn’t very consistent. With this one, I can confidently say that I’ve had at least 10 bites (and I don’t even have a dozen), and multiple interview requests, all with the old resume.
I don’t like the default Microsoft word blue font, it looks bad to me. Instead I went with a serif font, Helvetica Neue.
I hope that it does not fall flat. My old resume, as you can see, was a mess, with 2 pages that were not focused at all, and with a terrible layout. I am happy to answer any questions whatsoever, and I am glad to provide any bit of extra help that you might require.
It’s clean – something that is easy to read even when scaled up or down in size (something important if you want/need consistent formatting across various devices). The one-column format allows me manage content without leaving enough white space on two pages; while not ideal given CV norms, it does make things easier On another level.
It is professional. It is visually appealing. And it fits in 1 page. I used a free online resume creator to create my resume, and then I imported it into a word doc, which is what I am showing and telling you about below.
It’s clean – something that is frowned upon unfortunately- it fits in one page which i have heard & read works wonders, an eye catching format with good content per inch (whereas previous ones were all jumbled messes).
Primarily being that it is a free edit, and the template gave me the ability to add my old CV to it. It also allows me to customize it in various ways (though not as easy as having it externally. ) This edit will work on both **Microsoft Word and Google Docs**.
It’s an infographic: many companies prefer infographics over static pictures so they are more likely to scan your CV instead with just one glance spelt out on their own (this is partially true even though some people state otherwise).
I didn’t know how to format a resume without it looking really boring. I wanted the resume to follow the “I made it myself” style, while also being eye-catching.
Here they are: The title is not simply a useless word. It’s formatted for two reasons: most resumes are not being critiqued in a digital format.
My old resume looked like someone went nuts with Photoshop and added a bunch of stuff to it. The new resume looks professional, clean, and crisp.
It’s clean and minimal, yet still impressive. It’s aesthetically pleasing, and it’s a good size (it fits on one page without encroaching on the next page). It was originally written for a more business-oriented resume, and since I’ve changed my plans a bit, I thought it would be a good change.
The first is the typography, it looks so clean and easy to read. It keeps it concise, only having the employment history and education section to keep it down. It gives plenty of white space, even on the second page, which is nice for a designer.
It saves you from having to add pointless fluff:*text filled up white space. *relevant details are front & center so your audience can easily see what matters *no more looking at half-full pages.
It looks great because I know that my content is strong, it’s simple because I know how to write those great descriptions, and it’s free because I want to show my appreciation for whoever created this awesome template.
My old resume left so much empty space that I had to pad it out with some irrelevant stuff to fill it up.
The first is the way that the header is laid out. It’s a really nice touch, and although I could just about get used to it, I’m certain that after using this template for a while I will REALLY like it. The second reason this resume feels great is because of the way that the bullet points are laid out.
It’s beautiful! It tells you what to focus on at each position without masking important information. – Thirdly (and most importantly) there are headline numbers along with every job description statement that tell me whether or not someone is being honest in their assessment.
It is formatted in a very traditional WYSIWYG manner, which I like. I like the way the visual formatting gives names emphasis, without being obtrusive.
It saves me 2400+ words (I’m 6’4”) by trimming down previous write ups from several pages **and** it looks very clean because all information is tucked away nicely in distinct sliders to make fit more efficiently onto one page without losing legibility/impact.
I’m hoping that you all can help me highlight the best parts.I think the main highlight is the new header. I think it looks very clean and stands out. I also think it makes my resume stand out from the rest. I’m hoping that’s enough to get other employers to notice it.
1st – It highlights accomplishments over duties without coming off as such: “Fired XX employees” becomes much more powerful when you can explain why they were bad at their jobs2nd- The whole layout is visually appealing (my girlfriend even said so)3rdly–It gets me out from under ~500 keywords each month.
I don’t like the common “Experience” section, it feels very passive and for the most part, boring. I was especially unhappy with the objective section, which was something I made up.
Since most resumes are still based on the old “black-and-white, plain” text model, the visual appeal of a “creative” resume is appealing.
It’s very much different than any other template I’ve seen from companies or recruiters. No more “fluffy” line. Just straight-up awesome. it makes me think of a more “minimalist” resume.
My old resume just seemed childish and like it was from 2010 (if that even looks like a good thing). The coloring is also a nice touch, I feel particularly inspired by the way the template uses color sparingly, yet effectively.
It’s much more readable/clear. I think it’s visually appealing.Three, I put a lot more specific info on my Experience and Project info lines. Which means more stuff is emphasized. Four, I feel like I’m listing more tangible things.
It saves me from having to go back through 15+ years worth of work history looking at least somewhat redundant (as in no job was ever created assuming everyone is average or above). The narrative aspect helps reduce potential field gaps – if recruiters are left with only one viewable entry point into applicant data then they will have difficulty selecting an appropriate candidate most times.
It makes my resume fit neatly onto one page. since I am applying to a small company, I left out company names. I figured it would be more pertinent to include that in my cover letter.
It’s beautiful! The information is easy to findwhat you’re lookingfor quickly by just glancing at it. – You have some space in each sectionto specify what exactly your job title or position entailed., thirdly.
It looks professional, it’s fairly minimalist, it’s sequential (I don’t have a whole lot of “fluff” in my resume), and it’s still very readable. The only thing I’m not sure of is whether or not I should include the fact that I’m on the Board of Directors for the local YMCA.
My old style was word heavy with bullet points leading off each other which made it difficult to read., no such problem now! The experience is listed chronologically insteadofencychronently.
It’s very clean – another thing I’m looking for in a new job is a clean look. And more importantly, it’s personalized. I can’t think of many other job where I’d get to write my name in a sentence on the job ad.
I really like how the text is placed for each heading, and which fonts are picked out. I am normally one of those people who put their contact info in the small caps, and not in the normal font, so they are easy to see. I can also fit more easily since I have no extra space to float around.
It’s different than what most people use. I personally hate the traditional plain jane resume with their all black and all font type thing. I like my resume to stand out a bit. Most people make their resumes too long and include unnecessary information. This one is short and to the point.
It is a very clean, plain typeface, not the kinds of things I get embarrassingly funky with. it is designed to be read by a human reader, something that is near impossible to do when creating a resume for an AI.
This is organized very well with custom styling (as one would expect from an experienced designers) rather than someone forced into using some resume builder.
It’s not an eye-catching cv at first glance. It’s very simple and black and white. No highlights, no columns, just straight forward lines and simple fonts. It’s designed to fit on a single page. It’s formatted for ATS.
It’s extremely simple, to the point, and readable. It allows me to highlight things in the word document that I want to show potential employers.
I like the way it looks, along with a few other things. It uses a different color scheme than my previous resumes, which I’ve heard can be a good thing if you’re experiencing a lot of rejection.
Simple. Efficient. And it’s actually kept some of the formatting from my old resume. Reasons to like it5. Simple and clean design compared to my previous resume. It’s been a few years since I’ve had to change up my resume.
It’s very simple, and clean. All job titles are little hyper-links to the source on my page, so they’re easy to find, and click through to the details of the job. They’re on a new template, so there’s no more white space before the text.
I noticed an obvious visual difference in the way people write their resumes. Previously, most people used a very “dense” and “black and white” style. Now, most of the resumes I’m looking at are much more sparse and graphical.
Cleaned-No color scheme shifts from one page to another in any direction which would distract you immediately upon first glance.
It’s functional: you can see where things are going to go once all your content is in.
The first is the way the bullet points are laid out. No more awkward looking lists of things I did! Now everything is easy to see, and the job duties easy to see as well. in my old cv, the job title was a generic title given to the position, such as Financial Advisor.
I’m hoping that no matter what theme I choose it will be easy to tell what’s the same and what’s different. There are a couple reasons why I like this particular template, and you’ll probably too. It saves me having to Google search for my information.
My old resume was NEARLY 2 pages, which I think did me a disservice. I cut it down to 1 full page, and simply moved everything up to be next to the section name in the header.
It integrates well with a common serif font. It’s minimalist, so it looks good given that I’m going for non-fiction positions. Third, it allows me to list my academic experience in a more traditional, reverse chronological order (I did graduate work).
It looks clean – something that is very important when you are looking to work in an agency or corporate environment (where aesthetics often matter more than substance). My husband really likes it as well!It’s styled based on four common templates found online.
It saves me 2400 hours cab 50 font (twice as much space) by only showing information relevant to an adress or company. **Ever since i saw.
I hope you guys do too!In my old resume, I basically had the same information/position listed under 3 different job titles (assistant, retail & customer service representative) which made it look like I was hopping all over the place when I actually only stayed in one for a few months.
It works well for me because I am a introvert, I am a female, I have an education history of “just get it, learn it, get a degree and move on”, I am a literary scholar, and I am a large believer in continuous learning.
It looks so neat in Word; it’s very readable (as most resumes on here are); keeps awesome short & concise info about me without needing to fill an entire page(which is great if you’re applying somewhere with strict ATS requirements *cough*Google-ing.
It’s clean and crisp, the typeface is very clean and a comfortable size. (There are 13 different font sizes and each one looks great as well, well presented and easy to read. )The content is also well presented. All my past job history is presented in a logical order with the most recent company at the top.
It’s simple and clean – graphic design focus. The information provided on the top is most likely the most important part of the resume for most people. I can include more details about my work experience if it is relevant to the job application.
I was tired of seeing mostly blank space on the page. I feel like I am much, much less likely to get passed over for an interview if my resume is mostly blank space. I noticed that I am much, much more likely to get a call back when I submit my resume online.
I’m pretty sure it’s the first template of its kind ever created.
It saves me roughly 15-20 minutes from having to blank out every detail on *every* page. * The advice that each individual context gives is extremely relevant – it feels like some kind wordy explanation about why you are qualified/what your experience entails vs someone who knows exactly what they’re doing.
This new template features a great design of the title area, showing the company name and a brief about it.
My old one was very basic with an incredibly boring layout (view large image to compare).
I feel like it looks very clean and contemporary. It also looks very nice on any computer or any printer. My last resume wasn’t even updated in nine years. This one looks brand new.
My old resume was just a wall of text, with no style to it at all. It also makes me look like a pro, which I think is a good thing.I’m going to use this resume to apply for an front desk job at a hotel.
It’s so different – the old one was *boring*, and I didn’t like the plain black and white design. This one is so stylish, and has a very “fancy” feel to it.
I’m using consistent font size for all text ( 10pt ) throughout. I’m using a consistent typeface throughout (Arial with 5 pt font). I like that it doesn’t “stretch” as it were I know that 10pt font doesn’t look great at 5pt size.
It looks clean, simple, and modern – perfect for someone like me who isn’t afraid to mix it up a bit. It’s a quick read, and all the information is easy to understand.
It’s clean – no more graphics messing around with any fonts or pictures on it2, There are clearly defined professional roles/job duties3- jobs that were once “xxx company has zero relevance to anything ive done before” have been rebranded as simple tasks in here4.
When I designed it myself, I wanted it to be easy to read, and to stand out from the rest of the stack. I chose a very simple template, and used it on both the top and the bottom to keep both the top and bottom as visible as possible.
It looks clean. My info is bolded and not watered down like it is now. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a candidate’s resume and commented on how boring and/or unimpressive they looked, only to go back and fix those problems on their resume.
It’s simple: no columns here! No more wasted space between lines because you can’t have that much empty white area in one page (which is what most templates do).
My old one was very boring (text-only) with lots legible “fluff”.
I think the design is very visually appealing, and that’s important for a resume that you’re going to want to stand out even though your experience is limited. The lines that separate the sections are straight and thin, making the sections look bigger than they actually are.
It’s quick to update, simple yet eye catching, and the color combination looks great together. Plus it saves me from having to spend a whole lot of time coding up my own resume code. I’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible. Just a text box with some graphical elements.
My old resume was just a wall of text, with most of the text being repetitive and.
I hope you guys can help me improve it. I feel like it is too plain and boring.
It saves me 2400+ characters, it is very easy to read, and it produces results both visually & legible. PS: You are free to edit or even rewrite the contents of this CV. I just put my CV together, so I couldn’t possibly check every single word.
I personally feel like the old one was a bit too much info and not enough accomplishment. I wanted to highlight that I actually did something with my life a few years ago (going back to my college days) and not just stood around and did nothing for years.
Also, I know it’s got a bit of white space, which I’m going to fill up with some of my academic stuff, and I’m not sure what I should get rid of/cut down. So please, feel free to rip it to shreds since I’m always looking for constructive criticism.
It fits in one page unlike most that are two pages or more! It’s focused on jobs within information technology so thats why there is only 1 section with skillsets (these cover things like Microsoft Office)Thirdly these types software were from when i was younger where you got programs by default rather than paid.
It is simple yet versatile. while my previous resume was wordy and clunky, this one is very direct and to the point. Finally, I found a word count of only 32 words and still felt it was too little.
I, personally am a huge fan of this template. Once you open it up it looks clean, crisp, and is still relatively easy to read on pdf or .pages format.
It saves you from having to post each section individually, it helps prevent formatting issues with ATS software ( Google Drive/Docs link below)By default google drive shows all your open document when viewing yours so make sure they’re where we want themTo show company size in millions rather than specific digitsWe prefer 1 or 2 column formats.
Since I do work in TV & Radio, I wanted to make sure that my resume was reflective of that industry. I went with a dark navy color, and it’s not black. You can **see the difference when I link my resume below.** I like it.
I’m almost always sending my resume in . doc format, and this looks just amazing. I can adjust the headings to whatever job I’m applying for, so they’re always the same length no matter what I’m applying for.
It uses a different set of “tabs” than the default resume. I am a stickler for formatting, and feel like this is worth mentioning. and most importantly, it follows a very common formatting layout, which I find very easy to use.
It is simple and to the point. It is designed with a “human” in mind. Humans like simple things.
It looks very clean (compared to many others on here which look like they were just scanned from an ad) it stands out in color unlike alot i see posted or uploaded into job sites without any discussion as well its highly colorful (#f00).
It’s clean (no drafts or messes), it’s minimalist without being boring, and it’s aesthetically pleasing.
The main one being that all job applications will now need to pass it before they can be shown on your page (avg time in integration is reduced from 10s down)My old CV had large blocks within big frames which made viewing slow / choppy since you couldn’t really see what was going onto screen.
First off its very clean – no more art room wall paper or weird grey lines on your CV! Secondly it has colors which makes me feel well groomed (its navy).
It uses a different layout than I had been using which resulted in a lot of white space all over the place. Since it is a creative design it stands out nicely. And lastly, since I am a recent graduate it makes my resume look a lot more impressive than it actually is.
It’s simple enough that I can easily keep it going, while still looking good (no more worrying about whether or not it “looks right”). It’s also minimalist, and reflects my current personality and goals (which is very clean and straight to the point, for the record).
I’ve never been really good with resumes, and I have such a hard time “crafting” a good one.
It’s minimalist: no clutter! Unlike all those “ROAST ME” logos you see on so many modern resumes now that look like they’ve been spray-painting by hand with permanent marker stuff. # Side note:- No fonts under 10pt.
It is easy to read/scan. It is very simple, which is important because I am in the government and we sometimes have to stick to a very simple template (no columns, not much color.
It:* Is possible to fit more work experience in one page; e*.
It looks clean – all text on one pageThink about how your CV is supposed to look likeLet’s talk detailsPlease ignore that we are in Canada not US Sorry it isn’t posted here Deduction/specification question:I worked six years at an underwriting company as A / then B role (my first job).
It looks fresh (at least visually), it accommodates more skills (I have more listed than I did before), and it fits better with my profile (I changed career paths). I’m not 100% sure which of my references I should keep on the cv itself, though.
Three, it was kindly provided to me by YouStrong, and allowed me to use their awesome “romy” template (picture is a screen grab of the web page, my apologies for the shaky one).
It’s very clean! Single column – no more trusty table between id/position & company name Spacing is nice despite being fairly large Companies are mostly in one page (I know single-column layouts aren’t always best) Idk why Google Docs isn’t including hyperlinks.
It:* lets me put all relevant information on one page; including job history/bio. — Think Tim’s OBrien offices from The Office– You gotta tell ’em how ya feel about it.
It looks clean in comparison to many others i see on here which include color schemes that get overwelmed when viewed with an old CV saved locally from word (which can happen if you save it as pdf or too).
It looks so fancy and is so clean. I think it’s very different and stands out from the rest of the stack. I’m also happy that I got to see the template before anyone else, as I believe it will help me look ‘elves-with-ears.
I hope this is of some help to those who are looking for new opportunities!Things I love about this template:* The ability to control exactly where I want my title to be. * I want my title to be under my name, just above my contact information.
My old resume looked like a generic list of skills; it didn’t tell you much about me. My skills are still concrete things that you can see.
I was tired of always using a super basic black and white, all text, on a gray background resume. I wanted something that was a little more.
It’s so much easier to manage (I don’t have to worry about accidentally “ignoring” a field when changing it). Since I’ve been using it, I’ve noticed that when I change it from word to pdf, it prints slightly cleaner (no more white spaces).
Is that it uses a simple teal color scheme that I really like. It follows a common convention for ITC sources, which is to put the name of the company at the top followed by a title, and then another section with more info about the company.
It looks great on a number of computers (I’m using Mac), is easy to skim (as far as I can tell) and doesn’t leave much white space (a big problem I had before). It also doesn’t try to be fancy or flashy, which I like. My only issue is with regard to the work experience.
I like how the template uses bullets for bullet points, instead of the big block paragraphs you get when you write in the normal way. The personal details and hobbies/interests section are both centered and large, making them easy to read and clicking the text into the right places.
It’s professional – your resume should look professional even if you are applying to entry level jobs. It’s not the kind of thing you show your friends or family. It’s for a specific purpose. The type of job I am looking for does not require advanced reading skills.
It’s a LOT cleaner (I think) than my old habit of writing a giant wall of text. In my old resume I felt like every single job I listed had a little bit of opinion content, and it just didn’t feel right. In this, all I have are bullets.
This kind of change to my resume is a breath of fresh air. I’m tired of writing the same damn thing. I’m tired of having to write about myself (what I think). And finally, I’m TIRED of standard resume advice that everyone says you need to do.
It mirrors the Eye of New York template very closely – no surprise there.
I think it looks very clean and is easy to read, which is always a step in the right direction. Unlike most CVs, this one is focused on the jobs I want, which are language translation and editing jobs.
Most importantly – it’s the first cv I’ve ever made in English, which I’m pretty sure sucks. (I’m looking for a job in european countries, and thus in english – it’s not required in my country to have it.
Number 1, I found the template so easy to edit, I thought it looks way too nice. I changed it so that the bullets are just 1-3 lines, and I think it looks way more professional. And number 2, I notice a lot of people use tables to format their data.
This cv template is very clean, allowing me to fit all the important information on one page. It is simple, yet eye-catching. This template eliminates the need to put a “Skills” section, as my skills are mostly covered in my experience.
First off, I **literally** love the simple line style. It feels clean and is visually appealing. It doesn’t scream marketing major or anything, which I think is a good thing.
It follows a very common & traditional template, which I love. It is in color. I am a person who likes to mix things up, and this color scheme really makes my resume pop. It also helps to show off my writing skills, as I am also writing the profile for the job.
I hope it helps you guys. Before I start, I’d like to preface this by saying that I’m probably going to change/change/change some of the choices that I’ve seen here.
