Why do you recommend this resume template?
Many applicants will still be using a typical basic resume, which just makes this custom resume template stand out from the crowd immediately. This template is recommended because it works great as a checklist guiding you section by section with what to include; if you decide that a section isn’t needed or doesn’t apply, simply remove it.
Additionally, this template will allow you to focus on what is important. Jobseekers are so focused on getting the layout right that they overlook the content. It is easy to forget the content but this will be at the forefront of your thinking with a ready-to-use resume template.
