- A thick gold border underneath header that matches lines and hyperlinks. You’re free to adjust each technical skill bar by selecting it and dragging over to the right.
- Nice round picture inserted within the left sidebar of this printable template ready for download.
- While you don’t need a photo, you can include one that resonates with your resume and shows your face, head and shoulders. If you include an image, choose a high-quality image that allows you to show your face and key areas of your body. For instance, you can use a professional photo of yourself or you can incorporate elements.
- The work experience section of your resume should include detailed job descriptions that list the duties and responsibilities for each position you include on your resume. Be sure to include the same language that the previous employers used in their job descriptions. This will help you relate your past experience to a new employer’s expectations for your role.
- When describing your previous work experiences, you should use keywords from the job description that relate to your experience. If you are applying for a job that uses certain language, consider using the same keywords when you describe your previous work experiences. Using keywords from the job description will help you pass any Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) that may be used by the hiring manager.
- You should describe your work responsibilities and achievements as they relate to the job you’re applying for. If you are submitting a resume as a job applicant, you can avoid mentioning your age or marital status to avoid ageism.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I am going back to my old resume, but this one has me looking like a boss. I am willing to share the rest of my resume if anyone is interested, but I am not sure where to put it down. It is definitely worth sharing though!
I have applied for more than 100 jobs in the past 3 weeks and I have had only one call back. I have been ghosted by 2 companies and had an interview with one company but they hired someone else. The one company I interviewed with asked me to drive to an airport and show my resume but when I did they said that person did not interview well and would not be a good fit. I did not get the job. I do not know if it was the resume or the person.
It’s far from perfect, but it at least gets me to the interview stage. Thanks for the templates, folks.
It allowed me to fit all the work experience in 1 page. I used to have a 2-page resume which was too long, using this new 1-page resume I have a clean, straight forward, and impressive looking resume. I used this template because I liked the simplicity and the design. My old resume was created with word and I didn’t like the way the formatting looked.
I used this template and got a job in under a month. Before doing so, I had applied for at least 10+ different jobs with no luck. Even the most qualified/best looking resumes usually get rejected before getting a single interview. In addition, I was using a very non-standard (I was even told it was unprofessional) format.
I used this exact template that had just the basics needed for a resume. I filled it in with information from my old resume and a few of the sites I visit on a regular basis to help give it that ” touch ” . When I apply for a job, I send it in with a brief note saying ” Attached is my resume which can be edited to reflect your company’s needs.
It’s clean. It’s concise. It’s not trying to be fancy. It’s not trying to be different or stand out. It just is what it is. It took me about 30 minutes to write. It was exactly the resume I wanted to write.
This means that even if you ordered every page from top to bottom in reverse chronological order (which is what most people recommend) there would be no white space on screen whatsoever which effectively dumbs down your CV immensely.
I’m a creative and I am a believer in the work-as-part approach to creating a resume. When you hold the creative in your head you start to do all sorts of tricks that are not easy to explain consciously. I am a believer that if you want people to read your resume you have to give them enough information to make them want to know more.
The first being it’s very simple, something that I think is very easy to read and understand. it’s color coded for my information. Instead of having the same word show up multiple times, it flows from left to right as I change the section title.
