The best professional resumes tell a story of career success and potential. A common technique used by professional resume writers is to focus in the resume content on the situation, problem, or challenge, the action taken to meet those challenges or solve those problems, and the results of those actions (known as the CAR approach to resume writing)
Stories make your resume compelling to read and memorable and make it easy for the prospective employer to relate to the benefits and value you would deliver if they were to hire you for their company. Many modern executive resume templates make it hard to fit your story into the rigid structure provided. This is not the case with Bold Solutions. The layout of the Bold Solutions modern executive resume template will help you to document your experience in challenge, action, result in a storytelling format.
The Bold Solutions resume template also uses other design techniques that help call out the key points of the resume, including the shaded boxes that emphasize and draw the eye to your value proposition and major contributions in each recent position.
The red and black color scheme was chosen intentionally to be bold and eye-catching. These colors convey brand traits such as strength, energy, vibrant, dynamic, confidence, authority, power, and control. This makes them ideal colors to use on a modern resume template intended for executives.
However, with just a few mouse clicks you can change the entire look and feel of Bold Solutions by changing the color theme. Instructions on how to do this are provided.
