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.
