The content of your resume is what matters most, of course. However, just like a sharp outfit makes a positive impression during an interview, a bit of simple, professional design accentuates you resume. There’s no need to get too elaborate, especially if you’re not applying for a graphic design or other art-related job position, but a clean, distinctive style sets your resume apart and leaves an impression.
Here is a quick list with 10 examples of stylish yet simple resume templates from various design websites. Some are free, and none on this list cost more than $15, but great-looking templates can be found for a range of prices. Note that some of these templates require Adobe Photoshop to open, so if you do not have that program make sure to check if there’s a Word doc version before downloading or purchasing. Explore sites such as Etsy, Behance, Creative Market, and ResumeWay for more cool resume designs.
