Which Template Best Represents You?

To pick out the right template for your resume, answer these questions:

  • Man Icon
    • Use a template that fits the employer. If the job demands out-of-the-box thinking, check out our creative templates, which showcase stylish designs while also presenting your credentials clearly. If the job focuses on reliability and efficiency, consider a professional template that encapsulates your qualifications in a straightforward, streamlined layout.
  • Experience Icon
    • Use a template that fits your experience. If you’re a first-time job seeker, pick out a template that can provide expanded details on your skills and training, rather than your work history. If you’re experienced in your field and are shooting for a high-level position, pick a template that can accommodate an extensive work experience section. For more tips on figuring out how to best present yourself based on your experience, visit our resume formats section.
  • Mind Icon
    • Use a template that fits your personality. Employers are interested in how you present yourself as a person, not just as a job candidate. Choose a template that reflects your personal approach to work, whether it’s organized and professional, or collaborative and creative. Remember that you can adjust fonts and colors in any of our designs.
