From the Phoenix Collection, this has always been one of our most popular resume templates. Why is it so popular? Probably because it is so flexible and versatile, easy to customize for a wide range of uses, and it has a traditional yet modern appearance that is bold yet sophisticated. This popular resume template is a great choice for any experienced professional or executive candidate and has also been a popular format for board of director resumes.
The gray highlighted box in the summary section of the resume is a great place to include important keywords. The bulleted accomplishments in the Executive Experience section also call for a keyword phrase to categorize each accomplishment. This keyword-enhanced format is another reason that this is one of our most popular resume templates. When you are trying to create an ATS-friendly resume, keywords are essential as they ensure that your resume is recalled from a database when it is searched for the keywords important in your profession and industry.
Another feature adding to the popularity of this resume template is the Selected Highlights section of the resume. This is a very effective format allowing you to call attention to your most significant and relevant accomplishments in relation to your career target. Relevance is the key here. Think of your resume as being a tailored self-marketing document for a particular type of position. Which of your accomplishments and qualifications are most relevant in positioning you as the ideal candidate for this type of position? These are the facts that should be showcased in this section.
Many professional resume writers love our resume templates and use them to create custom, attractive, ATS-friendly resumes for their clients. The Phoenix Collection is a favorite of resume writers too.
