Its so different how the resume should look like depending on the country. Its a cultural thing. In countries like Germany, Japan, and China, its generally preferred with a professional photo. Its easier to remember the applicant. Therefore, I recommend researching the company well before sending your resumes. I prefer to generally remove the photo from the resume. Removing photos would also give me more real estate to show more information. Remember space utilisation is utmost crucial in a resume.
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.
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.
