Resume Starter Templates:

I’ve never done this before (and I don’t know of a resume writer who has for free), but I am uploading the Word version of these templates so you can use them as a starting point for your own resume.

These are just starting points, though. Use your own positioning and language if you want the resume to be effective. These templates are meant to save you time formatting and also to give you some strategy ideas.

Plain Text Resume: WordPress doesn’t seem to support .txt files, but here is the resume pasted onto a page. Unattractive as it is, this is  how most plain text resumes end up looking once they get to a hiring manager’s desk.

    Great webinar, Kim! Really interested to see the resume without job titles.

    Also — best takeaway: Copy-and-paste the actual job posting at the bottom of the resume when submitting to companies using applicant tracking systems.

      Thanks, Bridget! Unfortunately I couldn’t find the “no title” example. But the geology grad example is a similar idea. The title is de-emphasized visually, with the current value-added prominently presented. Also, the first page of the “Career Snapshot…” sample gives overall accomplishments with no titles.

    My dog had surgery was was very sick this morning so I missed the webinar. It says the recording will be up in a few weeks. Will we be notified when this happens?
