Contrast, The Free Fill In The Blank Resume Design

fill in resume design

Plain resumes are often passed up without a second glance. They look “boring” and are hard to skim – something most recruiters do these days due to the sheer volume of applications for a single position. So if you don’t immediately show recruiters what they want to see, your resume will end up in the recycling bin.

So your resume must stand out! It should be visually compelling without being over the top if you are applying to a traditional company.

Take a look at Contrast – our signature fill in the blank resume template. It uses just a splash of yellow to make a statement. Even better, it highlights all the key information and is easy to skim. All you have to do is fill in those blanks! Everything else just falls into place.

You’ve got the qualifications and talent to spare. Capitalize on that by filing this free resume that is both unique and tasteful just like Contrast template is.

    1. Hi Fede, you can definitely send these out to employers and HR managers. This is exactly what they are meant for ; )

      Good luck!

    1. Hi Sujith, if you are referring to the white borders around the document, this is due to home printers’ limitation that can’t print on edges. If you want to avoid this, you might want to print your resume at a local print store.

    1. Hi Tania,

      Since our resumes are delivered as pre-formatted documents, inserting a page can be a bit tricky. I would suggest to copy the entire document (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C), insert a blank page, click on the blank page and then paste (Ctrl+V).
      For your convenience, please note that this design is also available as a premium pack, which already include 2-page resumes. You can find it here:

      Kind regards

    1. Hi Arbee, you will first need to extract the files from the zip folder.
      Once done, you will need Microsoft Word to open and edit the template.

  1. How come the fonts are different when i use the template? Even the Austin Bronson looks different. Less ”tall and slim”?

    1. Hi Amrit, we use custom fonts for our templates. If you want to use the same fonts, please download and install the ones listed in the documentation delivered with the template.

  2. What do we do after we extract the files from the zip folder? I don’t find any file with said template, just the list of fonts used.

    1. Hi Jateen, once the files extracted, you should see the template itself along with a folder that contains the documentation.

  3. thank you so much! I have no how to thanks because other websites sell this type of template so expensively.
