A Consultant Resume Template that is a Great Choice for any Professional Who Performs Project-Based Work, Including Contractors and Freelancers

Meet our Consulting Resume Template: your key to wowing clients and winning consulting gigs!

You're a consultant. You don't just do one job for one employer like most people. You take on projects for a variety of clients, using your skills and expertise to help them achieve their goals. And you need a consulting resume that reflects that.

Most resume templates out there just aren't made for people in your situation. They're either too simple, with no room to list all your major projects, or they're too complex and overwhelming, making it hard for busy clients to see what you can really do for them.

But our Consulting Resume Template is different. It's been specifically designed for consultants, contractors, and other professionals who do project-based work. That means it has all the space you need to list your major projects, plus details on each one so clients can see exactly what you did and how well you did it.

And because we know that time is money in your line of work, we've made the template easy to use and customize, so you can get your resume looking just right without spending hours fiddling with formatting. Just open it up in Microsoft Word, make your changes, and voila! You're ready to send out that winning resume.

Good consultant resume templates can be almost impossible to find. If a consultant or freelancer tries to use a resume formatted in a traditional chronological order, it can make them appear to be job hoppers. A chronologically formatted resume forces you to enter each client or project individually, making it appear as if each one was a separate employer.

A better way to present contract or project-based work is a format such as that offered in the Consultscape collection. A good consultant resume template will prompt you to enter the details of the entire period of contracting or consulting as a single employer, followed by a section for the details of each project, but without concern for chronology. This consultant resume template format provides the space to include all the relevant details but avoids the appearance of job-hopping.

Available separately, the Consultscape biography and letterhead templates are designed to coordinate with our Consultscape resume template. See all templates in the collection:

The orange color scheme of the Consultscape Collection is eye-catching, but can be changed easily with just a few mouse clicks, to a color scheme more in alignment with your personal brand. Microsoft Word is REQUIRED.

Frequently Asked Questions

We can cover anything you need help with in relation to professional resume writing, from A to Z. My only agenda is to meet your needs and make sure that when our meeting comes to a close, you feel you have received the greatest value possible from our time together. Many colleagues want my help and guidance on challenging projects, and I provide advice in regard to the content, design, and strategy of the resumes they are working on. Others want help preparing for client consultations or handling particularly challenging clients. Professional development with the goal of achieving professional resume writing certification is another common topic.

When you are ready to book, you will be provided with my calendar, and you will be able to select a time and day that best meets your schedule. I do my best to make myself available on a variety of days and times, including occasional weekends and some nights and early mornings, in addition to regular office hours. The booking process is all online and fully automated, to make things as easy for you as possible.

Yes, please do! Our booking form includes space to describe how you want to use your session. If you have a specific resume or other documents you want me to review with you, please email them to me as far before the appointment as possible. That will give me some time to look at them ahead of time, so I can use our scheduled time together to provide my recommendations rather than read the documents while you wait.

Each consultation is scheduled for 60 minutes. Zoom is used so that I can share my computer screen with you during the consultation. This allows me to actually demonstrate recommended resume changes to you rather than just describe them. If you request it, I will record the consultation session and make it available to you for download, so that you may rewatch it later at your convenience.

No, not in the traditional sense. If we are working on a particular document and I see an error, I will certainly point it out to you. And, when I am recommending changes, I may actually make some of them for you on the document, as a way to demonstrate. But I will not proofread or edit your work in a thorough way. If you need help with those services, I will be happy to provide referrals.

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!
