The ATS-ready resume template in the Harvest Works Collection provides a fresh and modern approach to creating an ATS-compatible resume. More myths than truths are in the public domain about what makes a resume ATS-compatible. Chief among them is the myth that an ATS-ready resume can not be attractive. Nothing is further from the truth! Virtually all modern applicant tracking systems will "ignore" graphics and other formatting and just focus on the text of the resume.
The ATS-ready resume template in the Harvest Works Collection flips the myth that ATS-ready resumes must be plain and ugly. While the modern-appearing resume uses graphical elements to draw attention to key points, these elements are used in ATS-friendly ways.
The collection uses the rich colors of the autumn harvest, but this can be easily modified, changing the entire appearance of the Collection. It is a great choice as a template for any experienced professional or executive.
The reverse-chronological format is best for people with a clear and unbroken career path, although small work history gaps don’t stand out quite as much as they might on many other formats, due to the inline placement. Seemingly simple formatting strategies such as this are among the trick-of-the-trade tools employed by professional resume writers.
Available separately, the Harvest Works biography and resume cover letter templates are designed to coordinate with our Harvest Works resume template. See all templates in the collection:
As with all our template collections, MS Word is required and the resume template is designed to be ATS-friendly.
