While the Internet has made some major changes to the way many of us look for work, a good resume is still of crucial importance. It may well be the only exposure an employer has to your skills and abilities, so you should be sure that its a document that can convince a hiring manager that you are capable of filling the position. The best way to do that is to create a resume that specifically targets the needs of a particular job posting — but rewriting it from scratch can be a time-consuming process. Instead, use this guide to create a template that can act as a foundation for any job you might want to apply for. With a strong template in place, all that is left is to add in the specifics when its time to send it off to a prospective employer.
You may be thinking why would I say this? What about being creative? I am a designer, Why should I use old templates which anyone can use? With the dawn of Applicant Tracking System (ATS), You may need to hold your creative juices here. Some companies use ATS for handling resumes. These systems let companies to automatically filter candidates based on some criteria. According to ATS guidelines, your resumes should not contain any graphic element. This means no images, icons, tables or any shapes. If any of these are present, ATS could jumble up your information while reading your resumes and you could lose a potential job opportunity. There are other guidelines too around using font type, bullets etc. For full list of guidelines, read this article.
The particular sections you include may well vary depending on the types of jobs you are applying to, but a standard selection would be to start with a short paragraph about yourself, then feature distinct sections covering your work experience, education, and finally any miscellany. Make sure each section is clearly and appropriately titled. You will probably be able to fill out your education section fully, but for the other sections, only include the most important information. You only need to put down the credentials that are likely to be used on every single application — skills and experience related to particular jobs, not to mention your opening paragraph, should be crafted to fit a particular job description. This is a template, not the finished resume.
