Plain but Trendy – The Free Modern Resume Template

free simple resume template

Accountants, bankers, MBAs, salespeople and other professionals face an interesting challenge. They have to balance resume expectations with a need to create a document that stands out.

A resume that looks as if it was designed for an art student is out of the question. A resume that’s too “crusty corporate” and unattractive is no help either.

Your best bet is to go with a resume that meets the conservative standards of many potential employers while being visually attractive at the same time. It’s like pairing a Brooks Brothers’ suit with a colorful dress shirt, and brightly designed tie. You’ll stand out among your peers.

The dark border and charcoal stripe are perfect accents for your professional resume. We think you’ll also love the overall layout. We’ve heard great things about this template from HR folks and hiring managers. Download it today. It’s free! You’ll love what this resume says about you.

Need a 2-page resume and a matching cover letter? We got you covered with the complete set that also includes a job interview tracker.

  1. I LOVE THIS RESUME… however, I am a little agitated because the separation lines that you included could not be moved or colored over on Word document. I needed the extra space for my work experience and that really is blatantly in the way and disrupts the flow of the resume.

    1. Hi Megan, thank you for your message.

      The separation lines can definitely be moved and colored. To do so, you have to select them.
      This might seem a bit tricky since they are very thin but this is doable, maybe after a few tries 🙂

      You can reach out directly via the contact form if you have questions. Thanks
