Your input is very much appreciated .
I don’t like how wordy my resume is, and I sort of need to keep it short for work.
I don’t like the fact that most job descriptions seem to be bullet points.
I don’t know if it is more professional, or if the way it is setup is a reason why I’m not getting any calls for interviews.
It eliminates a lot of white space, which in my opinion is very important. I’ve tried to fit as much information during the front and back of the resume.
First off it’s much easier to read/scan (as an engineer), second its cleaner design uses white space effectively while making sure assitant lines don’t look overlapping etc., thirdly even though Im on one page now with some headings pushed onto anotherpage without any problem or break in presentation.
First off its beautiful as hell (I’m going to match it by color later on), second is that Word really doesnt play nice with columns/page breaks etc.
I like how this CV template is divided into two pages. It reflects my 1-page format very well. I love the ability to showcase my internship and coursework in the education section.
It looks very clean, and is extremely aesthetically pleasing. Oh, and this template is awesome. I’ve been using it for a few years, and it hasn’t failed me yet.
My old resume was just a list of the usual “IT Solutions” and IT Consultant in terms of industry, with no real sense of style. The new one typifies what I do professionally – graphic design and web development. It’s clean, simple, and to the point. I feel like that makes it stand out in a good way.
It’s simple! No columns !Second: It follows an “old fashioned” call center style layout (thinkielike actually).
It saves me 2400 words (vs 18 messages), it fits well on one page vs 2 pages(I kept all relevant information front & center so there’s no reason why you couldn’t read everything if your interested) AND since most companies ask to see BOTH sides – in addition TOO good job performance history can be seen at once while still expressing accomplishment across several fields.
It’s extremely clean & simple to read/parse (a first in me finding CVs). It also helps that most all avant-garde style resumes are super angular or stri-. Secondly amongst other things due tp modern design principles such as guide lines / boxes etc.
The way it breaks up sections based on content makes sense to me (tailored your skills vs listed out all major skill sets), which is important because in manufacturing we use different applications & people move around through these environments with varying degrees of technical competency.
For one thing, it lets me put my work/education experience in an awesome way – it’s all about work/life balance folks, and this template helps me do that very easily.
