Plain and Simple – A Basic Resume Template Giveaway

simple resume template Word

I just need a basic resume! We hear this from job seekers all the time. We agree wholeheartedly. Sometimes, minimalism is the best approach. However, being minimal does not translate to being wonky with your design. Every resume or CV template should be carefully crafted. Formatting, font choice, and other elements of design still matter. In response to this common demand, we have created this basic resume template (and many more!)

We have designed this template to be sleek and streamlined. It has two columns which make this one both attractive and easy to read. Hiring managers love this well-organized layout as all of the important information stands out. They can find out everything they need to know at a glance. This increases your chance of having your resume or CV land on the important, ‘to be interviewed’ stack.

All you have to do to download this template is to share this page on either of your social media profiles, thank you!
