Your input is very much appreciated .
In my previous position, I had to make do with an old, column resume that was very cluttered. Google Docs seemed like it was never going to be able to clean up this mess.I wanted my new employer to be able to quickly see exactly what I did.
It looks so clean and polished, and it’s a very easy read. I’m not sure I could ever go back to the old style with the multiple columns and extraneous info.My old resume was around 3 pages, with a shit load of info. My current resume is a single column template.
It saves me 2400% in space (I cut out a lot of junk), and it’s easy to read/follow.
The old one was just too bland. This is much more eye catching (for me at least).
It allows me to fit all the information on one page, and still have enough breathing room to add a little something. The color scheme also adds a little something too traditional and sleek. I think it works really well.
It beats the heck out of my old, word-filled mess! it beats the heck out of the old standard resume which, I think, was inadequate for the amount of jobs I was applying to.
I think it looks very clean and stands out from the rest of the paper. with a little bit of tasteful coloring, it makes me look like a “professional” (again, probably not the best word) which is important because I’m trying to break into a non-profit organization.
It’s simple! No columns, just normal tables with no bullshit nonsense on top in any direction. (You can’t tell from viewing attached file)Secondly – you don’t have to put every job held onto your résumé!.
First off it’s super easy to maneuver – every header gets its own line like everything else (still wants some white space though) which is nice if you’re applying everywhere or having multiple people look at your CV.
It’s clean – an important first step if you haven’t already gotten that right straightened out before hand.
It is very easy to read/follow. it is very easy to customize. In addition, since it is a template, I can edit it to fit any specific job I am applying for with out changing the content itself.
I’m hoping it looks pretty good for anyone considering a redesign.I’m hoping it looks pretty good for anyone considering a redesign.I’ve been looking at a lot of advice on here and also trying to read the various sample resumes available. So far I’ve been really impressed with most of them.
First off it makes me feel confident knowing that once i’m in front of an employer ,i have what they are looking For on thier endoscil model :). Second reason its so great is because each position gets one personal business contact giving info about you prospective candidates before any interview can take place! *sigh* lets keep our fingers crossed.
One thing I really liked was that the template included a section for work experience, accomplishments and related skills/competencies.
I like how this cv template includes details on the PDF version so you can see what the actual formatting looks like. I find that many cover letter templates do not do this and make the text look somewhat grey/blue.
It’s clean – something that is vital in our field! No more “filler” lines between jobs (in traditional templates). The text sizes are large to make charts easier fit on one page; yet small enough so you can still clearly see all your information without being suffocated by it.
It’s a very traditional resume which is exactly what I wanted. I’m really talking myself up at the expense of my skillset and experience. Third, I’m just plain exhausted from working such a competitive industry and my last month or so has been particularly hard.
The first is it’s very clean. I never had any trouble keeping it clean, and it doesn’t look like a dang CV. it’s not boring. Every single line is either strong, interesting, or both.
It’s clean, simple, and it appeals to my sense of style. It’s a bit oversaturated with color which I’ve heard is a big no-no on this sub, and it’s formatted in the traditional manner with a very clean and plain design.
I didn’t know a better way to start my letter – all of the ones I saw started off with a greeting or something, and it felt very unprofessional. So I started it off with a short, simple, and to the point letter. I am a bit shy.
It’s a one page resume. It highlights accomplishments and value added rather than mundane tasks. It’s a pleasure to look at and a pleasure to read.
I think the dark background color is pretty dang awesome. It adds a bit of grit to the mostly white and blue resume and makes it stand out. I added a section to my skills that are directly relevant to the job I am applying for. I tried to show off the details and give them a bit of a focus.
I’m hoping that the blue is clean enough, and the way it’s set up, it’ll be easy to read.
It looks clean – not like most resumes which look somewhat rough in appearance (even though they may appear cleaner). The typeface is very minimalistic with just enough depth to it’s width so that even large characters aren’t printed upside down when you view them on your computer screen or printer without laying out some paper beforehand.
No nonsense design with lotsa color to set it apart from regular resumes which are either too colorful/gaudy or have sections.
There’s the typography, it’s clean and modern, yet still has a touch of classic feel. there’s the way the bullet points are put together, they’re grouped by impact and purpose, instead of left to right and up and down, and they all fit together well.
I’m a huge sucker for any good color, and red in particular. I have a weird complexions, and being a nervous wreck didn’t help.
I didn’t want to do a normal template with a bunch of huge, empty spaces. I added a little bit more white space to the body (where the actual resume text is) and I made the font a bit more dense to emphasize my Asian/Middle Eastern names. I think it looks much better already.
It is very eye-catching. It is structured differently than most cvs out there.
I like how it plays with type:From left to right, the headers are:* CONTACT* LANGUAGES* AVAILABLES* PROFILEMy initial thought when I saw this was that I need to maybe change the type of each header to match the job application.
It’s clean, organized, and essentially displays what I think you should show in a resume. It’s also been a real treat to work on, as I’ve been turned down by several hiring managers for terrible resumes that could use a little sprucing up.
First off : The old one was just too cluttered with “references”, so i removed those & condensed it down to make things much more readable (at least on paper). Second: an issue many people have had is that they’ve listed different positions in their time at companies; Google has several departments you can move around within if your skill set fits.
I found a new font, and it’s awesome. I like that it’s readable, and it doesn’t look like every other template I’ve seen. It stands out because it doesn’t have a lot of filler, and that is what I need.
It’s clean, organized, and comfortable to read. It’s also been helpful learning to describe my experiences on my own terms instead of those based on the job I had just mentioned. Having said that, I do find myself missing the clinical skills section.
It’s clean – something I’m a bit concerned about because the old resume was very cluttered. The template uses a nice grey color, which is great if you’re applying to jobs in Canada. The bullets for my job experience are bolded and made to look like they’re above the line, which makes them pop.
First off, I’m looking at a change in companies coming from the field (the big 4 tech companies as I’m sure you can figure out). As you can see, this template is designed for those kind of positions, with a few more details than the previous one.
I love the way that it is very clean and straight to the point. No fluff. Only relevant information for the position I am looking to apply for. No non-relevant positions or “skills”. Just what my industry needs.I really like the way that it is organized.
It’s actually a pretty sweet shade of purple. It kind of brings me back to when I worked at a university, and our academic adviser was a nice lady who had a purple passport.
It looks clean, modern, and packages all the information from my old resume into one page. My previous resume looked like it was rushed. My old resume was also 2 pages, which I now know is too long, so the ideal is to keep it at one page.
The first is that I know exactly what I’m putting on my resume and it can be tweaked slightly each time it’s needed. The template is visually appealing AF. Third, the information on the page itself is easier to read and is in a more logical order than it was previously.
My old resume was pretty much just a list of the jobs I had. It was wordy, and basically said “Here’s what I did, pretty much. “My new resume is much more descriptive, and really stands out from anyone I’ve worked with before. It doesn’t say “Here’s what I did, pretty much.
It looks like a professional resume, it stands out from the crowd, and it is aesthetically pleasing.
My old resume was around 3 pages, and it was just a Pain to look at, with its cramped up jumbled format. There was just too much irrelevant information as well. With the new resume, I was able to condense it to 1 page, and still keep the information relevant.
