There is no substitute for hard work. Regardless of how challenging it may be, you should never stop shooting for that dream job. A resume template like Tolchester gives you plenty of ways to be a standout candidate with it’s simple styling.
It’s basic and crisp name header is in black and red with varying font sizes. The silhouette style, black and white monogram is oval-shaped and fades cleanly into the background.
Red and black text work together well to give the core-functional format a professional yet gorgeous quality that creates clear distinction to structure the layout appropriately.
Arrows, decorative borders and bullet points are designed to make any work gaps not as obvious without any dates.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It’s a step above the plain black and white traditional cv’s I had been using, It gives me more space to put my skills/work experience and It makes the format easier to read and not so annoying to look at.
I’m not a regular font size:I’m probably going to be using this CV for most different kind of applications – student, graduate/entry, mid-level career positions etc. Here are my main reasons for loving this template so much: It’s simple and straightforward
It’s clean (to me at least). There are no random white spaces that look odd in picture 3 due to digitizer software editing out word outlines/templates The text aligns nicely4,5:# Topological Data Table with Visual Alignment6.
It uses a functional format, which I like. it gives me the option to list skills/volunteer work/other projects. So if I need to cut some parts out, I can. And finally, since I have only worked one job, I can use the same style of resume for all jobs.
It’s visually appealing as a lot of templates look very busy and not eye-catching. It beats the heck out of my previous word-processed cv, which admittedly I’ve used before.
First off, I *think* it’s cleaner than the old one because there’s just so much more space to work with. because it’s easier to read, I feel like it’s more concise. Third, because it’s a little more professional, I feel like it’s easier to get compliments from other hiring managers.
It’s clean, simplistic, and memorable. I think it’s a great balance of modern and traditional.
Primarily it looks like *something* done by an actual person (rather than that ugly black & white thing most templates use), which is nice considering how creative industry tends to be. Secondly It saves me having omit information from previous jobs due NOT being related AND has some cool character lines in IT since they’re relevant here.
It works great for my needs as a recent university graduate with limited experience in applying for professional jobs (I didn’t have to use a resume since my first job in Canada was already part of my experience). I don’t have much work experience as I’m still a student, and I wanted to keep the resume at one page.
It’s minimalist: no graphics whatsoever! No funny fonts or colors to speak of; Just straight-forward text with some color where needed (within reason). It accommodates various skill levels well enough even if you have less than optimal experience/education Levels 1 & – The top section is basically stripped bare.
I hope you guys love it too!* One page – To me, one page resumes are the norm now. I like this style because it’s simple, yet still gives a professional summary. I got my previous jobs all on one page! Two pages and I had to use a functional resume! This one is clean and modern.
It saves me 2400 screenshots (unless you zoom in) so any one-click diagnosis is very helpful especially if your screen recorder isn’t great at firewallsI thought: 1.
I don’t like the fact that it lists my technical skills in a separate section along with my volunteer and academic experience. I feel like my volunteer experience is irrelevant.
It’s a lot cleaner than the old one, which was ugly in comparison.
I always struggled with summaries- in reality they are just descriptions at their core (albeit good ones). Also most job postings today highlight your achievements rather than quoting you or what has been done to achieve those goals etcThe old one was wordy & contained useless information that didnt fit anything.
The first is it’s really simple – another thing that helped me cut down on info was to just list stuff in order rather than “fluffing” too much information under each heading (I’m looking at you volunteer experience)! Secondly ,it ships without google docs so if anyone has an android phone or tablet they can open pdf files with little formatting errors etc.
I don’t like the old format and wish there was a better way to organize my information. I’m looking for something that is concise, has a modern feel, and that is easy to read. The old format was a mess, and many in the designer camp got upset that it wasn’t ATS optimized.
First off it allows me to put all work experience on one page unlike how its usually done where everything is spread out over two pages like in Doesn’t have “job” words such as customer service or data entry Marketing that isn’t advertising an internship/part-time position ie: working at Starbucks insteadof McDonalds 3.
First off, I’ve been looking at the same resume for SO long and I haven’t even noticed some of the aesthetic cues and cues that I’ve been giving in my resume that I need to improve.
No weird looking bars or blocks to block your story flow with (a major faux pas on paper). It follows an effective Tertiary Table format that gets right down TO business in hand:Your name / contact info Name email@onlylinkedin.
First off it’s very readable – that’s important since most potential employers will likely skimming through before making their decision to reject or keep an applicant based on grammar alone (as in spelling/grammar issues). Second as many people have mentioned — **ATS preferred format is standard bulleted paper style with short concise sentences instead**.
It allows me to list my education from the point of view of the education institution (i. School A, graduating from A to B). It allows me to focus on the most relevant experience in my experience section, removing my unrelated work experience.
My old resume was very boring, and it relied heavily on word-for-word descriptions. The descriptions were not unique, and weren’t even good enough to make the page. This new resume is a lot more visually appealing, and it’s a lot more meaningful. It’s a lot more professional, and it works much better for me.
My old resume was very boring, and while it got me a few interviews, it definitely didn’t get my foot in the door. I’m a graphic design/typographer/social media manager and I’m looking to do something like this as a full time job.
It looks so clean and modern; the font is classic (Arial), and the texts are thin and nicely spaced. It’s so concise and easy to read. Also, since I’m an IT professional, it was important to me to make the text actually useful and relevant to the job.
I’m a huge believer in showing quantified information. I’ve always been told to quantify my achievements (what I previously referred to as “having a successful degree”) and how it related to my work (specifically my research), so I’m really loving the approach of my new resume.
First off, it’s just so vibrant and interesting, in a good way. Whenever I look at it, I can tell that it helped me “stand out” amongst other resumes. Especially since most of the jobs I applied to were for “entry-level” positions, requiring nothing more than a high school diploma.
The new resume is super simple to read, and highlights the important information in a very non-generic way that’s non-verb tense.
