Does it spark joy? That familiar phrase has become the motto of minimalists everywhere. If it doesn’t bring you joy or serve your needs in some way, get rid of it. The same philosophy could be applied to your resume. A cluttered resume won’t help you land an interview. In fact, it’s one of many mistakes that could be working against you as you search for a job. That’s why we have created The Minimalist resume template just for you. It has everything that you need to make an impression, without the distracting elements that get in the way.
The left margin of this resume template features subheadings along with matching icons. We’ve used a bright red for these so that they stand out, and grab the eye of whoever is reading them. A cool little icon accompanies each heading, along with your contact information.
Freesumes is a leading provider of free resume templates that you can download and tailor to your own needs using Microsoft Word.
Template updated: We’ve heard you! No more special font for the fancy icons, we’ve turned them into images (ready-to-use).
