“Land that dream job” is used way too often. Let’s go with: Get ready to get hired. Villard is one of our featured resume templates, for obvious reasons. It’s undeniably one of the few designs that’s unmatched visually. 100% for Microsoft Word. It’s a two-pager, but you can use only 1 if you want.

Villard is impressive mainly because instead of only using chunks of text, it uses infographics to accomplish a similar objective in a much more creative way. As you can see, we added a column to the left of the work experience section specifically formatted for company logos.

Fill in the career timeline as much as you want, and choose from the variety of icons in the download pack. Add in your favorite photo and word will automatically resize it to the preset picture shown in the pics. Then plug in your information.

Extend the professional skill graphs by pulling them further to the right. Do this after you plug in each of you key skills, of course. Sift through templicate’s extensive sample library for ideas.

Test out different logos and adjust the data for the pie charts till you’re satisfied.

Play around with the embedded QR code. Follow the attached guide to find out how to generate a new one. Or remove it and put in your own logo is you want. Whatever’s clever.

Key in your references. Take your pick from the massive amount of social media icons that come with.

Quick Tip:

This section of your resume is critical and can be displayed in either column. Be sure to give the name of the company, your job title, years of employment, and a few key skills. This can help the hiring manager better understand your qualifications and what you’ve contributed to the company in the past.

It looks different – not bland or boring like many other ones i’ve seen.

It’s beautiful. it’s functional. It follows the structure of most modern resumes and isn’t bland.Third, it’s easy to read. When I worked as an SEO Analyst I edited the text with a program that I felt was very poor. Now I use a text editor to do that, and it’s so much better.

It is a functional resume, which is much more appealing to look at and is probably what gets you through the screening step of the application process more often than simply putting a pretty picture of yourself. Since I am going to be applying to specialized markets, I want to make sure that the information in the resume is actually relevant.

I didn’t know how to appropriately show my education. I have only one semester left in my degree program and I am considering removing a couple of the courses so that I can expand the one that remains. For now, though, I am considering just listing the school and degree below the education section.

I like how it’s simplified, and the information communicated is clear and concise. Another bonus is that since I have an editorial background, I feel like this will appeal to a broader audience than if I were to attempt to do a traditional CV.

I didn’t like how wordy my resume was, especially since I had a lot of related experience to a lot of the jobs I’m applying to. The old resume was a mess. I’m really into the minimalist format, and thought it would look really nice.

Firstly it looks great; in an updated version with some minor changes (I kept all instances off), It feels fresh.

My old resume was NEARLY 2 pages, and I know that most people recommend against more than one page.The old resume was all JUST text, with no graphics at all.The new resume is all graphics, with subtle color variations (blue for education, and green for skills).

It is so clean. I can put more of my accomplishments and goals for the industry in my future. And lastly, it makes it so much easier to rework my cv when I get a new job. So here is my new resume:I would love to know what is your opinion on it.

It’s clean (no more ugly white space)! Second & most importantly. Quality: in traditional resumes you had to be either very skilled at replying directly back or have an easy time glossing over obvious errors with elegant handwriting while making eye contact constantly on camera. Not both! Now your replies will speak louder than any dumbshit cover letter ever could.

Simple is good. It’s professional without being over the top. Its black and white and no color, which is perfect for a junior cv. It includes a picture, a benefit that I see often over hiring managers who say they can’t understand what’s on the resume.

It’s very clean – many resumes have cluttered fonts & big messy spaces- instead it looks almost pixel art like with only black/white& dark colors allowed (except maybe where some areas are light gray).

I think the visual punch the design gives the CV is really great. It definitely makes the sections stand out, and helps make the cv easy to read. I think the fact that I listed projects instead of regular jobs is really helpful.

No frills. (Still working on front & center space)Second – It looks like every other “traditional” resumes out thereThirdly– Some people include photo at topWe’ll assume you won’t be one those types who opts to use fancy layoutsThe first obvious downside is that everyone else has graphics/color etc.

I didn’t want to do a plain jane resume as I don’t think they’re as cool. I wanted to highlight my skills (which are not really highlighted in any other way on my CV) in a different way than I had done in the past.

It’s clean, simple, and attractive. I used a lot of graphics (symbols, colors, etc.) and gave my resume a lot of white space by using a lot of white space in the body of the text. I wanted to make the text as big as possible without using a lot of space.

It looks very clean, consists of exactly 1 page, and best of all: it is ATS friendly! No more tabbing through a super long text resume to find the job you want. Just sit back and relax, good job you did here already.

It’s style is clean & simple; very similar to how our university works (our project manager has said he thinks mine looks good). Secondly ,it includes just enough information without increasing noise in text : by showing projects separately you can see exactly what each part does while also not having over-analysing bullets with detailed explanations.

It is very easy on the eye. it is very legible. In addition, it is very clean. And, fourth, it has an amazing 1-page length. My old resume was around 2 pages, which isn’t as good as this (my apologies, resume experts).

It’s clean, simple, and it uses a different formatting for each job type. It’s also been a while since I’ve had to update my resume, and I haven’t had to make a resume in years. I thought it could use some help. The first is the header.

My old resume was just a plain black and white, two column, font size less 10, with no graphics whatsoever. This new resume is a color scenerie, and I can tell the difference immediately, even before I’ve tried it out in an interview.

It’s minimal! Really nice work :)Secondly, while most job descriptions are longwinded rambling scandals about office politics gone wrong or corporate overreach/mismanagement; mine is simple bullet points (5 sentences) detailing actual accomplishments with data backing them up. # Known Issues:1.

It looks clean – everyone wants to have their own unique looking CV these days. – it’s easy on eyes; you only need one page instead on 3-4+ pages before now (mine was around 2 chapters long). My previous resumes were packed with information that didn’t necessary matter anymore.

It’s formatted using a four column layout, which I’m told is “icker” than the standard one column format. Unlike the first version, this one uses a lot of white space, and feels very modern.

It’s minimalist, clean lines (no columns) and it’s designed for a relatively professional audience (which I think). Here’s my main reasons why I think this cv template is great:* It’s the simplest I’ve ever seen.

It’s in line with the recent trends of minimalist-modern cv designs. it’s professional – I’m not just blasting out my resume to all the surrounding “resumes” like kindergarteners. And third, it’s interactive.

First – with this template, I’m able to showcase all that I’ve researched on my time in school without feeling like it’s just another boring list of numbers that doesn’t tell anyone’s story.

It looks so professional, I don’t want to indicate to the person reading it that I personally wrote it – it looks silly. It feels clean and minimal, like my experience won’t get in the way. My branding statement is right on target, and I feel like it is creative enough without being too flashy.

It makes my resume stand-out. In the old resume, all my text was the same font size, so they were cut off and it looked pretty bad. Now, all my text is large and bold, and it’s a single color.

It’s simple! No columns!, meaning you can fit more directly on your valuable real estate. * it highlights accomplishments instead of trivial background tasks.

I think it will make me stand out amongst the stack of resumes flooding in. It is simple, yet eye catching. The kind of cv that gets you noticed. I decided to go with a somewhat minimalist format, because I’m applying for creative roles.

I think the pattern is eye-catching. I think the two column format is incredibly clean and modern looking, while still being interesting and unique. Third, I feel like it lets my experience speak for itself, without having to tell that story through a bunch of bullet points.

I didn’t know an ATS would accept a left-justified text path. I like the way my resume fits without giving a reason for every job listed.

I like the theme – I always wanted my resumes to look nice. It’s very easy on the eyes. I also like that it’s focused on what my experience actually means. I’m not just cramming stuff into a resume because I feel like it.

It saves me dry time having to update everything whenever i change career fields or move across states/worlds (this was actually costing employee performance an unknown extent).

I wouldn’t have been able to cut everything down to one page with space left over. Reasons number 1 and 2 are joint: sometimes you don’t need a fancy looking resume to get what you need to get out of a application.

I noticed a pattern during this project: most of the projects started out with a need study, followed by some coding/testing, and then a write-up about my findings.

I always thought that your resume should be boring, standard and not too flashy. I am not an interesting person to be with.
