  15. Hi Dudulie,

    Thanks, for uploading this simple, easy to understand resume template.

    Through some of your other articles, I have come to realize that, since my resume only gets an initial 6 second look to decide whether or not to view it in more detail, I need to put any relevant information into an abbreviated one page format.

    Then, I can add additional pertinent facts to back up the main resume page using attachments – so that I can sell the interested recruiter on why they should hire me!

    I was able to successfully download the template – and, I will use if to apply for a job I’ve been wanting for a long time!

    Wish me luck!

  24. There are countless times that I have wrote a resume in my life and surprisingly I was in the other side reading the resume while interviewing the candidates. The format of your resume is perfect and easy to follow but it might be suitable for someone who has a few years of experience in the work force, if that person is a new graduate, he/she can switch the layout a bit in my opinion. Thank you for sharing the template 🙂
