A resume in the combination format can be a great resume format for any professional resume, but it is especially well suited to people making a career change and for people who have experience in their work history that they want to bring to the forefront of the resume. No matter your reason for choosing it, the combination resume template in the Exquisite Collection is the perfect choice to create a job-winning resume.
The layout of this combination resume template is set up to have two columns on the first page. This is an especially attractive and appealing layout that is very popular.
Many lower-quality resume templates available from other sellers use a similar columnar layout created with tables embedded into the Microsoft Word document. While the tables are usually invisible to the viewer, they are used to achieve the exact placement of certain parts of the resume template.
Unfortunately, most resume templates set up in this way are not ATS compatible. If you use a resume template created using one of these complex tables, the content of your resume may become jumbled and unreadable when your resume is entered into an ATS.
The solution is to create a columnar resume using only a very simple two-column table and that is what we have done in this combination resume template. As you edit your resume using this combination resume template, follow the prompts within the template. We’ve included pro tips that will help you not just develop a standout, accomplishments-filled resume, but also create one that is ATS compatible and keyword optimized.
ATS compatibility is extremely important as the vast majority of corporations and recruiting firms use applicant tracking systems to manage and track candidates through the hiring process. When you choose any Distinctive Resume Template, you can feel confident that your resume has been designed to perform well in ATS.
The Exquisite Collection includes an optional bundle of matching documents, including a resume addendum with prompts for additional qualifications and skills, a professional biography, references handout, and even a cover letter template.
