Flexible Resume Template Perfect for Executives and Other Professionals
The Lakeside resume template for Microsoft Word is designed to be a very flexible resume template for experienced professionals and executives that is suitable for use across a wide range of industries. This is also a good choice as a board resume template.
Any flexible resume template must be easily customized, and Lakeside is especially flexible in this way. Just type your own initials into the initial block in the top left corner and type your own four top qualifications into the Value Offerings graphic. Both of these elements will be identified as graphical elements in an ATS and will be skipped. ATS compliance is another essential factor of flexible resume templates, and Lakeside fits this as well.
The monochromatic blue color scheme is calming and attractive, but can be easily changed with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Besides ATS compliance and easy customization, the Lakeside resume includes many other sections designed to improve the flexibility of the resume for use by a wide range of individuals. For example, the Representative Achievements Highlights section can be used to promote your most important achievements without concern for the chronological order. This enables you to be strategic in what you emphasize, to make sure your resume speaks to employers’ needs.
The bolded keywords at the start of each accomplishment is another feature that makes the Lakeside resume template especially flexible. Keywords are essential if you want your resume to perform well in an ATS and this strategy gives you additional room to include more keywords.
Available separately, the Lakeside biography template, references template, and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our Lakeside Resume template. See all templates in the collection:
Like all our templates for MS Word, everything is easily customizable. Just copy and paste to add sections or rename or delete sections to make Lakeside your own.
Microsoft Word is required to use all our templates.
WHAT OUR TEMPLATE USERS SAY
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!
