- When you write your resume, make sure to use the same sections that the job description uses. For example, use reverse chronological order for your work experience. Then, include your skills, qualifications and any other relevant details in the work experience section of your resume. The qualifications and details for each section should be formatted using bullet points.
- While many people create a resume as a one-page document, employers expect to see a resume that is more detailed and includes more information than just your job history and duties. Rather than simply listing your job duties and the companies you’ve worked for, your resume includes details such as the specific skills required for the job, the company and position’s mission and its specific goals.
- The bulleted lists under each position should provide specific details about your duties and achievements. Use bullet points to create a concise, informative list. Try to provide numbers and percentages when you can to quantify your accomplishments.
- Be prepared with real examples of how you led teams to success in the past and how you would do so as a manager. For instance, if you were asked about your experience as a manager in a previous role, you can discuss how you organized the daily tasks of a team of employees, maintained communication channels with all team members and implemented strategies to keep the team’s productivity up.

Your input is very much appreciated .
I think the blue color is eye-catching. I am a little afraid it might be too much though. I think the one background color is a bit too much. In addition, the one line bullets are nice and short.
This template makes it easy to show all of the necessary education, even though I have had some gaps/schools in between. It makes it easy to show the different competencies/experiences I have outside of work.
It appeals to my human nature of conflicting impulse to quantify and make numbers visible for as long as possible. It allows me to put experiences I have not “worked” yet in a resume without it looking silly that I haven’t done anything yet.
It’s clean – something I’m always concerned about with resumes. It’s cute – not every resume needs to be a clear infographic on a white background. It’s witty – my resume is already loaded with keywords from the jobs I’m applying to, so using some snappy phrases to describe my experience would only be beneficial.
It looks very clean, and is easy to read. My previous resume had a lot of white space, so this new one doesn’t have that problem at all. I’m pretty sure it’s the first time they’ve ever had a recruiter look at it, and they didn’t mess it up at all.
I didn’t want to do a fully-fledged resume. I wanted to highlight my bilingual skills – I have studied Spanish for 4 years and I want employers to know that I can communicate well in Spanish.
I noticed a few grammar issues that were resolved in the revision. The revision condenses the resume text which, for me, was a definite improvement. Third, the revision drastically improves the template for making a resume as an infographic.
Looks very professional in comparison to many others i see on here that are just regular word documents with no graphics at all (I’m looking specifically towards applying within marketing).
When I worked at my last job, I wasn’t able to take personal projects such as creating my own games, making movies, drawing, programming etc. Also, I think they make my cv looks more diverse.
It looks so nice!I’ve had trouble with online applications where all you do is type in your information into fields that look like anagrams or straight copy/pasted from another document.
I hope whoever is reading this! It’s stand out It’s open for you to add your own personal touch, It’s concise It’s structured well
I don’t like the fact that resume builders are word-dense unlike a lot of the templates I’m finding here… and I feel like builders never give enough space to the companies/projects I’ve worked on.
Detachable cover letter, nice. Doesn’t have too many borders all over the page, yet still stands out cleanly. I think the one page format is a good idea.
After researching various cv templates, most of the ones I saw constrained you to a single page. While I like this design choice, it can be limiting in the sense that a cv should be an effective tool for getting into a position, not just a “handy” list of stuff to look at.
My old resume looked cluttered, with too many colors and fonts, and grey/black instead of white/black. The new resume is very clean, and doesn’t need to have any color at all, as it doesn’t really apply for the jobs I’m applying for.
Perfect for getting noticed at a glance… makes your CV very easy (and quick) read; every line speaks loudest without being too obnoxious or pushing out overlong paragraphs full.
The first reason is that it is so minimalistic. Since I am an engineering student, it makes my resume look very clean, and somewhat professional. Thirdly, it allows me to put my skills into easily digestible language, without having to go into excruciating detail.
And it looks damn good. The first reason I like this template is because when I was on the hiring committee for my last job, I would submit only a single sheet of paper because everyone else on the committee had way more stuff to put than I did.
Here’s a little background info on me: I’ve been in the public sector for about four years, and I’m looking to get into the private sector.
It allows you to fit **WAY** more info without making it look weird (or clunky), while still showcasing *ALL* your experience in one page. # Summaries:# Professional Experience You’ve worked professionally with customers as either an associate or sales representative – most recent position was Associates only.
The job title in experience is bold enough to look good but has more focus on your related work history.
It looks clean – not like every other CV out there which is just ugly! And it’s easy to read (you don’t need much space!). The color scheme works really well with both mine & co-workers’ backgrounds. – There are no grammatical errors in Spanish _because_ they’re regular words_.
