An Eye-Catching Resume Template for Experienced Professionals

The New Horizons Resume Template is a very flexibly formatted resume template for experienced professionals that is eye-catching and structured in a format that is especially good as a resume template for professionals who have testimonials that they wish to showcase in the resume. The format can also be a great choice for career changers.

What are testimonials? Simply put, they are quotes from former bosses, colleagues, employees, customers, etc. that call out and reinforce the brand traits and key value proposition that you are promoting in your resume and other career documents.

To find quotes to include in your resume, look through past performance reviews, reference letters, emails and other correspondence, and even LinkedIn references. You do not need to include the entire quote. Instead, pick out the most impactful parts and use ellipses to fill in the sections you have removed. For credibility, it is best to attribute the quote by including the person’s name, job title, and company affiliation.

Another feature that makes New Horizons a great resume template for experienced professionals is the "Representative Career Accomplishments" section toward the beginning. This is a very effective technique when you have accomplishments from earlier in your career that are relevant to your career goals but might otherwise get overlooked.

This format as a resume template for experienced professionals would also be effective as a career change resume, as you could use this section to call attention to transferable experiences and accomplishments. It would also be a great choice for experienced professionals who have veered off their primary career track and now wish to return to the path they were on earlier in their career.

The New Horizons resume template is ATS compatible. While it includes several graphical elements, most ATS will just skip these and pull in the text.

Like all our templates, everything, including the color scheme, is easily customizable. The New Horizons resume takes on a whole new “look and feel” when you change the colors.

Available separately, the New Horizons references dossier, biography template, and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our New Horizons Resume template. See all the templates in the collection:

As with all our template collections, MS 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!
