A Multi-Use Resume Template That Can Be Used As Either a Resume for a Younger Professional or for Creating an Executive Brief
This multi-use resume template is unique in that it can be used by younger job seekers who have little professional experience but can also be easily adapted to become an executive brief (a short one-page executive resume that can be used as a complement to a traditional executive resume).
The summary section of this multi-use resume template has been styled in a popular two-column format. If you are concerned about ATS compatibility of your resume, you have probably read that a column format like this is not good to use. In many cases this is true. However, if properly set up a simple table such as the table used to create the columns in this resume template can add to the eye-appeal of your resume while also maintaining ATS compatibility.
The summary section of this resume is one of the key features that make it useful as a multi-use resume template as it includes lots of space to include signature strengths and core competencies, as well as your standout personal brand traits.
What should you include in this section? The first thing to consider is who is your intended reader of the resume and what will be most compelling and appealing to that target. A good way to gather ideas is to review job announcements for positions that are of interest to you. What qualifications are stated as required or desired in these job announcements? You should match these required and desired qualifications with your own qualifications and include statements in your resume that show how you meet these requirements.
In the right column is a space for relevant achievements. Again, when choosing what to include here, think about your target reader. Choose the accomplishments from your background that will be of the greatest interest to that target.
Easily customized to make it your own, the resume is a one-page template that can easily be expanded to multiple pages if necessary. Coordinating biography and letterhead templates are available separately. See all the templates in the collection:

WHAT OUR TEMPLATE USERS SAY
Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.
While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.
When I was starting out with resume writing a little over a year ago, one of the most intimidating aspects was visual design of resumes. I didn’t want to have to learn graphic design to stand out—and with these templates, I didn’t need to! I was a little hesitant at first because I thought the templates might be too rigid or generic. In actuality, they are incredibly flexible and easy to play around with. I can customize any template with my client’s favorite colors in just two clicks—which means they never look exactly the same, even if I use them for multiple clients. Using the templates means I can just do what I do best—write—and then plug the text right into the appropriate section. It saves me literal HOURS of work and hassle. One of the best parts about purchasing from Michelle is that she is extremely responsive to questions. There’s a private Facebook group where she records screen share tutorials about how to switch up certain elements in the templates, and she's always been responsive to my emailed questions. My clients are completely thrilled with the unique, modern design of their resume, and I’m thrilled that I'm saving time and don’t have to learn graphic design!
I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.
I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!
