What is a Good Professional Resume Template

A good professional resume template is clean, well-organized, and easy to read, effectively showcasing an individual's qualifications, experience, and skills. It should feature a clear structure with distinct sections for contact information, a professional summary, work experience, education, skills, and any relevant certifications or achievements.

How to Select the Right Resume Template

Selecting the perfect resume template depends on the following factors:

  1. Are you an experienced candidate or an entry level candidate? - If you are applying for entry level roles, pick a resume template that helps you highlight your objectives, skills and past projects/internships. If you are an experienced or senior candidate, choosing a template that allows you to build a reverse chronological resume that highlights your job experience and companies is important.
  2. How many years of experience do you have? (e.g. 5 years vs 15+ years) - Most non-entry level resume templates fit well with 5-10 years of experience. But if you have 15+ years of experience, you need a resume that is capable of quantifying your many years of experience while being short and concise. After all, you don’t want a resume that’s 4+ pages long. With the right resume template, you can fit 20+ years of experience in 1-3 pages.
  3. Do certifications and skills sections play a huge role in your job application? - If that’s important, pick a resume template that highlights these sections.
  4. Do you feel reflecting your personality in your resume is important? - Do you listen to podcasts, have favorite books, hobbies that you wish to reflect on your resume? - there’s a resume template for that!
  5. Is reflecting creativity within your resume important? - If you are looking to make a creative resume, you should definitely consider leveraging a creative and visually appealing resume template.
  6. Is the resume template ATS-compatible? - Unless you are emailing your resume to a recruiter, our suggestion would be to choose a resume template that is ATS-compatible.
  7. Finally, is that resume template really ‘you’? - In the end, the resume template you pick has to be the perfect reflection of who you are and should allow you to reflect that in the design and layout of your information.
