Choosing a Resume Style

resume style video The first section you will see when using the Resumizer Free Resume Creator is the Style section. Here, you will choose from any of our 25 different styles. They are all free; none of them require an upgrade or surcharge because there is none. Each style has different features; such as lines, monograms, your photo, and colored headers.
The formatting of your information is also different for each style. There are different features and functions contained within each one. Changing the formatting is a useful way to optimize your information to emphasize the stronger areas and de-emphasize the weaker areas of your resume. Keep in mind that when you are looking at our style examples, you can customize the colors, font, photo, and section formatting to satisfy your needs.

When choosing a style, choose one that will display your information in the easiest to read, most visually pleasing manner. You will want your resume to contain a fair amount of white space on the page. This space will help separate each section and provide a rest for the employer's eyes. This rest will help the employer quickly glean the information they are looking for, within the 20 seconds they will spend reading it.

After you have entered your information and made your personalization choices; you can preview your resume with each style, to find the one you like best. You will find that the styles will look different from our examples when they contain your information and personal choices. It is best that you try all the styles before you decide. This testing can easily happen by trying all the templates. You are bound to find that for your field, some of them will be more effective than others.

In the next section, we will talk about how to optimize the way these templates display your information within them. Here are some related articles that expand on selecting the best template. For further customization, you can use these templates and arrange your information to organize it for a greater level of effectiveness. To have more than just a basic layout, you can change the formatting to get the most out of these templates.

You can write using our program, or you can download our Word templates and work on them unaided using a word processor. Click on the link to the templates below to be taken to their main page. From there, you can look at each example page and download whichever ones you wish. There are no limits to how many you can download.
