Are you a young adult who is searching for expressive methods for developing her resume?
Fortunately for you or anyone like you, a template like Tonetician accomplishes this exactly.
Every section is quartered in it’s own squared off area with blue text to boot.
- Display your immediate goals as a recent college grad with minimalist decoration that help demonstrate your internship experience.
In the smaller column of your resume, include a section that lets the hiring manager know you’re a willing to consider an interview. This section can be used multiple times, but is most effective when used in the first or second paragraph.

I’ve been obsessively editing this template for my specific situation, and in the end I think it looks *really* good. It’s clean, organized, and ample in size. I’m finally comfortable with TYPO writing. I think I’ve got the feel for it down and the rhythm down.
I’ve always been a bit of a clutter monster, and hated the way my resume looked when i finished it. I started reading through this sub, and saw this template. It’s simply beautiful. I was able to clean it up and get it to one page by using a template.
It is so easy to read / follow. The subtle color-coding of job titles & positions is also a big plus. this cv template makes it easy to show accomplishments / results from each of my jobs. Although I am re-doing the same thing in many different fields, I don’t spend my time mindlessly STEM-ing.
It:1-Linearizes things really wellDoes one full page without any gaps/tables or columns3 infuses style & personality into each entry4 asthetics. My old CV was very plain looking (texts with no pictures).
The template itself looks very nice – very clean and contemporary looking. the text blocks are nicely aligned to the left with the main text and fonts are limited only to a few common sizes.
It’s easy to read / follow: all sections are now bullet points with descriptive sub-sectionsIm still on TargetMind : “patient” isn’t an appropriate description anymore since patients aren’t always treated as one single entity.
There are no boring header texts that everyone puts just to be different. In my old resume, I was still using a lot of old styles (which I actually think aren’t that good anyway), and now they are just reminding me of the things I already have on there.
It’s positively un-fancy. The text is thin and nicely spaced. It’s also all under one page. My last cv was way too big. This is way more practical and manageable.
I’m a bit unsure of the use of horizontal lines as separators. It seems most people show a horizontal line between each section title and each individual bullet, and it helps break up the otherwise drab page.
It’s functional! You don’t have to put job description in plain English if you’re not going *to* write it that way. Surprise: When people look at your CV they think about (unfortunately) only what is on paper.
It allows me to show *all* of my work history, unlike the previous one, which was very focused. it fits much more of the topics of my resume, since it’s much more recent work history. Third, it looks much more professional than the previous one, despite being a resume that has served me well.
I didn’t know how to format a cv cleanly, so this is my first time ever using a template like this. Also my old cv was a mess, and I had to rewrite a bunch of crap to get it looking decent.
I loved the simplicity of a plain, functional resume, and wanted to stick with it. I am so frustrated with trying to get anything interesting / different approved! I love the way the random categories at the bottom look.
I don’t like to bullshit my audience, and this cv reflects that perfectly.
It has a very clean look, especially compared to my earlier drafts. It’s more centered and easier to read. It’s a lot less of a mess than my old one and easier to parse through. It’s a single page, unlike my old resume which was two pages.
It saves me literally tons of time : I don’t have to think about font sizes or what times I should apply a color. It also allows me to exclude certain sections that may be irrelevant (like hobbies) by simply emptying them out.
It saves me from having to post each time that i update or customize something in Word (which is what im trying avoid). Also saving up one pdf every month will help with keeping things on track as far goal wise headings/titles etc. Plus it looks good! As you can tell by browsing around here 🙂 There are tabular elements provided so that you can define which sections contain what – very helpful.
It doesn’t need to be obnoxious. It doesn’t need to be the most eye-catching thing ever. I want x to be a consideration you take a look at if you’re working with me.
I think it will be good for getting some sort of tech support, or an engineering internship in the long run.
It looks so professional, it’s easy to read, and there aren’t any awkward page breaks that I’ve gotten used to. My old resume didn’t even have a header.Another plus is that this time I was able to fit ALL of the job stuff on one page. No more wasted space.
It’s clean, simple, and it’s aesthetically pleasing as well. I tried to condense it to one page, and to make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
First off, I didn’t know how to make a functional resume. Reading through this sub, I found it hard to understand how to make resumes that aren’t just black and white with bold titles. I wanted my CV to be able to reflect what I have learned on my own without needing to write an explanation every time.
It mirrors the eye movement of a resume reader. When someone is reading your resume, their eyes are naturally drawn to the title, your name, and your experience. It makes your resume stand out from the rest of the pile. it mirrors the type of content you are likely to encounter on job apps.
The templates are minimal – which means that you *should* use your existing experience to tell those stories2 : It saves me from having multiple posts with weird re-arranged content.
It’s beautiful! Many templates online (and free) look very similar or ugly in comparison. – It adopts an Uni-Bold “Charm” style that is standard among most Of course you can customize from there too: just change your text color ,company fonts etc.
No unnecessary stuffiness whatsoever. – It makes an great impact with respect to whitespace (layout). Second is that in most jobs where you list your skills etc., they’re pretty much always listed as hard or soft Skills along side background information about education/certs. /etcThat said.
I hope you guys also love it. The main reason I think I like this template is the way the section headers are laid out. There is no wasted space, and everything fits in the section entirely. Also, the column headers fit perfectly onto the right side of the page, and there are clear lines between each section header.
It’s minimalist, clean, and aesthetically pleasing without being too flashy. It was also professionally done, which is always a plus, and the information included is probably the most important part.
It looks clean with little clutter while still looking dynamic – something you’d see on TV or in film no doubt. )I also like how it organically adds itself towards both sides making use its space without ever feeling crowded OR over-written.
I didn’t like the previous experience section. It felt very useless and just drags on. Removing it leaves a huge blank space at the bottom of the page. I can replace that with an objective if I feel it’s necessary (and it was a teacher who advised me to do this).
I like how my new resume seems liek I have no unemployment gaps all of a sudden (last thing on my mind). Like everyone else, I see that as basically a given now. Plus it has lots of white space, which helps keep my resume from being too fat.
First off, it’s very easy on (most) smart phones! It highlights what you’re trying to bash into your target audience: Your accomplishments / successes instead new experiences & skillsets which demonstrate value.
It’s clean – something that isn’t guaranteed by many resumes these days! Additionally it highlights accomplishments rather than responsibilities (which is good since some interviews can be very lackadaisical). Finally its color-pop solves another problem often experienced with black & white: providing enough visible space without adding unnecessary empty areas.
I think the design is really clean and doesn’t look like many other templates I’ve seen. according to some people, it’s easier to read. Third, it allows me to fit my job history better without overcrowding everything.
It looks clean, isn’t overwhelming, and plays on some strong aesthetic feelings I have. It also comes with a cover letter that is just a page that you can include if you wish, and the whole thing fits onto just one page.
It is simply beautiful, in a functional kind of way. I think it looks good and stands out from the rest of the clutter. with this template I can control exactly what information is on the template and what isn’t. For example, I can make the text white and more concise. I can also make the text smaller and make the font larger.
It looks so clean and simple, and still keeps the info relevant to my job.
My old resume seemed a bit cluttered too. It’s not a wall of text. I’m not trying to sell myself short, I’m just not really sure what else to include.
First and most importantly – it’s a lot easier to read (I’m sure you can pick out the important info more easily). It’s Arial or Calibri, smaller font size. It’s a lot more readable.Second – it’s consistent.
It looks clean (I used to have large blocks full pages that didn’t flow)It has all key information on one page- even if you’re looking at it in Desktop preview or reading later with Acrobat Proxies etc – great when interviewing me!My notes are customised too so they never get lost amongst 50+ other resumes.
It’s clean, minimalistic, and crisp. It also helps that I’m not a huge fan of the typical “skills:” or “qualifications:” section that so many of the templates here seem to favor. I’m also a big fan of my unique header.
First off it’s incredibly flexible in terms of what i can apply to – whether that be within education or industry (ie me working at Kmart).
It’s beautiful; as far tech goes it looks great on paper The guide is concise & effective 3 and It unlocks knowledge very quickly even if you don’t have alot to learn (that i know).
It really makes me feel like I’m a “professional person”, like I’m not a guy that’s trying to advance in the back of a van across the north american west coast.
I think it looks nice -no really, it looks really nice. it is very readable -I can see what the writer is trying to say through the layout. Third, it integrates the cover letter AND resume nicely.Fourth, it fits on one page which is a plus.
Layouts are tables! So now that we have borders on our header & footer where they should be. Therefor white doesn’t matter :)3rdly.
It is very minimalistic, yet cohesive. There are no individual section headers like most templates I’ve seen, just a big block of text at the top and 3 important/summary info bullets. Also, this cv is MUCH larger than most, and a LOT more content than most.
The first is that it is a very *simple* template. It is elegant. It doesn’t over-complicate things, and makes the most of what little space there is. Third, it is a *straightforward* format.
First, it’s extremely simple in nature – two columns with only relevant information on each page (and no “fluff”). Secondly : In termside from listing education like most templates recommend you do; i’m actually basing partofmybusiness off that advice.
I like how this template allows me to show off my activities, honors/awards, and languages. I have never had a resume that displayed all of this like this.I also like how straightforward it is.
Number It’s very clean. A lot of resumes on here are messy, and that scares me a lot. I want a resume that is straight to the point and easy to read. The first thing you’ll notice is the title.
My old resume looked very cookie cutter and cookie cutter, and that is no fun at all when applying to jobs. This cv template is clean and modern looking, yet still has a little vintage feel to it.
It’s very minimalistic compared to most other ones i’ve seen because thats what got me in trouble was having too much stuff around. Second is that since its been kept so simple ,it looks professional already even before you add any colors or profuse margins etc ( something many templates do not have ). Thirdly after going through 100s.
I’m hoping to get into a design/creative agency, and the template is perfect for that. I just finished this draft, and it’s about 30% of the way through my draft! I think the biggest challenge was simplifying my experience to only show what would be useful for my target audience.
For starters it’s simple – another thing that was ticking me off about resumes from college days is how often they are “full” or too wordy with layers upon filigree graphics to look professional (think: ESPN print media section). Secondly. BAIL! Here’s where things get interesting.
It’s beautiful! It comes with an “Add your own text” function which is really helpful when you’re trying to cram in too much information without knowing what every single word means. (Themes/design are Customizable).
First of all it’s very clean. having the sections in the template allow me to fit my experience better, without having to waste space with irrelevant stuff around the edge.
I like how clean it is, and the way that it blends the text and design without ever sacrificing one over the other. I also like that it’s a one page template. That way when I print it, I can fit it all on one page without it feeling cramped.
I didn’t know any better way to format my experience. I can reword some of these points to be more concise.
It is beautiful as a Mac user, and I always have liked the Corning Typeface as it looks quite nice (I am also a Mac user). It is also easy to read, and does not hide information like other templates I have seen.
It’s clean: no more side-bar with irrelevant (sometimes even silly) stuff on top! Second – It looks good; everything is either exactly one page or two pages depending solely upon what you’re trying to fit into that space. -It collapses neatly onto itself when not in use.
It’s extremely clean (no more messy headers or extra spaces between lines)! Second – It uses established language that many companies are typicall accustomed to seeing e,g “Customer A”.
I’m a huge fan of typography and formatting, and this template is perfect.
And it’s gotten the number of interviews up significantly. Before, my resume was a combination of about 6 different formats I’d try and shoehorn into. The content was pretty much unchanged each time.
It’s incredibly easy to navigate–anywhere in here you can find what YOU need (avg). The sidebar lets us know when we’ve got problem areas that may be explaining more about ourselves than our jobs.
It’s a single PDF file instead of four, which was a huge pain before. The template is aesthetically pleasing, different from the usual. Third, it allows me to put more descriptions, experiences and tasks and less stuff all on one page.
It’s easy to read/follow! No more awkwardly shuffling thru columns or trying hierarchy with large font sizes (which is what i’m afraid does happen when hiring managers get overwhelmed looking at huge resumes). People are generally MUCH nicer than theming internet memes lolThird. A lot less awkward “Dear Mr.
It’s structured around categories (skills/interests) rather than bullets like most people do which seems to get tossed out often by HR ever “folding” resumes. (Note: This is one version among many good ones you can create yourself.
My old resume looked like a child did their first cv, it was boring and didn’t stand out even though I had experience. My new resume has a more professional and modern design, it stands out immediately and is much more visually appealing.
This new template allows me to fit more in, while still having space to show off my experience.
It’s minimalistic! Almost like an infographic; you don’t need to look until after reading all your information before knowing where everything is located (keeps me from looking at more).
The main ones being the way the information is laid out, and the descriptions used. It feels very. Fluent, and I think that’s a good thing, like for someone with learning disabilities or something, that they feel more comfortable describing the things they know.
I like how it’s columns are structured, it’s simple and elegant. It’s also consistent with my previously used resume template. The reason I’m posting here, is that I’m looking to apply for a graphic design position in NYC, and I want my new resume to really stand out.
Number one, it’s much easier for me to organize. Since I’m switching industries, and thus, as I said, two sets of additional files to manage (this time it was photo-editing and layout for the web version), I had to rethink everything.
It looks clean – something that is important as i will be applying to accounting firms in Australia (where generally all bureaus look alike). My old CV had lotsa color which made it pretty much impossible To parse through quickly.
It looks professional, it’s not boring, and since I’m going for a creative type of job this really helps to stand out from the rest.
I noticed an improvement in clarity and transparency in the document. I eliminated a lot of extra stuff that was adding nothing of value. Third, I made my resume fit nicely on one page.
It’s very functional. It’s a near direct copy of the job that I’m going for, so it’s very direct and to the point.
First – Although it is simple in design, it still looks very professional. Not many cv templates like this one. Second – It is still easy to read, even if the information you are looking at is not very small.
First and most importantly, I don’t have to sacrifice readability and ease of viewing and targeting. I can also fit more information onto a single page now, which was a problem for me previously. Additionally, I can fit more technical and specialized information because of the new format.
The main thing being that I know that I am more than 1 person.
I love that it uses a classic sans serif font (Arial), not the typical Times New Roman or Georgia. I love that it follows a standard format, instead of a crazy format I found on google. Third, it is very easy to parse, and to turn into a nicely formatted document.
First and foremost, it looks like a professional resume – which I’m trying to aim for, and I think a professional looking resume is either a) important to have or b) something that stands out from the rest of the resumes submitted.
My old resume looked like it was put together by 8th graders. It was overly complicated, over the top, and didn’t even try to pass the ATS. The new resume I made is very simple, yet effective.
It looks like every other template I see on here. They all just copy/pasted the same style I did on my resume. With that said.
It looks so clean and puts the focus on the important details of my job experience instead of the random (and now irrelevant) stuff from 10 years ago. It’s also pretty simple, which is always a plus in my book. My only concern is that this may be too minimalist.
I didn’t know a better way to show several experiences working in a company in a table. The columns for skills and experience are simply a better way to organize each experience (e. G.
My old resume looked cluttered : three pages long with a column in the middle that spanned two pages. The new resume is much more readable and easier to read. It maintains the column on one page, and simplifies the rest of the template.
