A Bold Resume Template That Makes it Fast & Easy to Create a Results-Generating Resume
This bold resume template is so easy to use that it practically writes itself while creating a powerful and persuasive presentation. With its two-page format and extra space for professional achievements, this bold, standout template is best for experienced professionals.
The dark, shaded boxes with white text are one of the features that make this resume template so bold. But, beyond just design impact, these callout boxes serve the purpose of drawing the reader to the key highlights of the entire resume. Prospective employers are most interested in your potential to add value to their company, helping them solve problems, meet challenges, and achieve goals. The proof that you have done these things in the past is compelling. This bold resume template makes it easy for you to highlight your achievements and quantified results.
The highlights box at the top of the resume is created in what is known as a "text box" in Microsoft Word. While newer applicant tracking systems (ATS) can sometimes read this box when you submit your resume as a Microsoft Word document, you should assume it won't be read into the ATS.
On the other hand, if you submit your resume as a PDF, it probably will be read. While all of our templates are designed to be used in Microsoft Word and this is the format you should use when requested by an employer, we recommend that after your resume is written you convert it to PDF and submit it that way. Submitting as a PDF helps overcome some of the ATS limitations presented by Word documents.
Available separately, the Maroontastic Collection biography and letterhead templates are designed to coordinate with our Maroontastic resume template. 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!
