Why Use a Resume Template?
Focus on Content
When a template is used, you get to focus on adding your uniqueness to the resume and not worry about layout or formatting.
Not just generic template designs, we know that an engineer will need a different resume than a nurse. That’s why we designed resumes for specific professions.
Optimized for Legibility
Our resume templates have been designed for legibility with: font sizes, spacing and layout to ensure Your future employer has the best experience when reading your resume.
Why use a template?
If you feel comfortable designing your own layout and picking the appropriate font for legibility, then there may not be a need to use a template. However, if you don’t want to worry about layout, readability and format then a template is what you want.
When deciding on a template, you might be overwhelmed with eccentric designs or too many formats. Most employers are looking at your resume to see your skills and experience, so picking a minimal template will help showcase your skills and not the resume template (unless you are applying for a design job that would benefit from an eccentric design).
A minimal template is easy to skim and present the relevant information for quick reading, so your employer can quickly see why you’re a good fit. Think of being on their side, sometimes an employer will look over hundreds of resumes and don’t have the time to decipher complex designs to see if your skill set and experience is relevant for the job.
You don’t need to pay for a resume template either: google docs, word documents and our resume builder provide beautiful free resume templates so you can focus on quickly adding your content to get that job faster.
