Want a modern template for your resume with a minimalist and sophisticated design? You’ve got it.

This template has a friendly layout so that the hiring manager reads it effortlessly. Almost unconsciously. It’s almost like they don’t realise they’re reading a resume. Its modern look makes it a perfect choice for creatives, designers, content specialists, and developers. But it also suits applicants with less experience, trainees, entry-level applicants, or if you have gaps in your work history.

Long story short, if you’re looking for a clear, effective, and impactful introduction to the hiring manager, this template is a safe bet.

A Skill-Based Resume to Get Ahead

Did you know that, on average, a recruiter takes six seconds to decide whether or not your CV deserves another look? That’s a very small window of opportunity.

The modern template is a functional resume designed to break the six-second rule and capture more attention than the average CV.

How? By showing succinct segments with only your most relevant details, including a brief summary, experience, education, skills, and references –all in a paragraph or less. This way, you make your resume easy to read and more specific at the same time.

With this format, you can introduce your best abilities, including both your professional and soft skills. Therefore, you can present yourself as a skilful candidate and the first choice that everyone wants to work with.

On the other hand, you can –and definitely should– use your pro skills section to highlight your:

  • Software
  • Tools
  • Languages
  • Areas of Expertise

This structure prioritizes your talents over your work experience. However, it also gives you enough space to briefly detail your most notable achievements.

If you’re making a professional transition or want to hide gaps in your work history, the modern template will be the ideal choice for you.

This is some text inside of a div block.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
