Most of our templates are quite universal and you can't go terribly wrong with any of them. Despite that, you should probably take a moment to think about what kind of image you want to project.

In most cases that comes down to choosing between traditional and creative designs.

When to use a traditional resume design?

  • If you’re applying for a relatively formal profession. This mostly applies to typically non-creative fields like finance, consulting, law, academia, healthcare and government. Employers in these industries usually ask for neat resumes that look professional above else.

  • It allows you to maintain high readability. It helps you demonstrate your achievements and experience very effectively.

When to use a creative resume design?

  • Companies that welcome creativity are usually more open to customized job applications. If you’re hoping to score for a position in fashion, marketing, design or arts, a creative resume template is the way to go.

  • Using an unusual resume design is a great way to stand out from the crowd, especially when you’re aiming for a position that values creativity or interactive skills.
