A resume template with a prominent blue sidebar
Before you work on your resume, you need to understand that your CV is a marketing tool. More specifically, you are going to sell your competence, experience, and specific knowledge. You market yourself in order to convince the employer you are one of the best applicants for the job.
Not THE best (yet) though!
As a matter of fact, at this point, your CV is just your Golden ticket to get an interview.
There are a few general rules you should follow. First, do not try to detail everything you have done. Your CV is a snapshot of you. It must be concise. Ideally, it should not be more than one page. Your content must be easy to read. Choosing the best resume template is a crucial choice you are going to make. You also need to follow several formatting guidelines: for example, use a basic and modern font. The default font we use for most of our templates is Calibri. Helvetica or Arial are perfect too. The size of the font is also key, between 10 and 12 points. Finally, your resume must breathe. Add enough space between your sections, and for the page margins to make it easier to read.
This modern resume template complies with these essential rules. Obviously, the left blue sidebar makes it very distinctive. It also helps the main content (experience and education) to be better highlighted. In the sidebar, you will showcase your skills. And on top go your photo ID and personal information.
