Resume Template for Experienced Candidates
A great choice as a resume template for experienced candidates and executives, the resume and coordinating documents in the Purple Haze Collection can also be used as templates for board of director candidates.
The Success Highlights section of this resume template for experienced candidates can be used as a chronological summary of your career history, providing just the highlights of your contributions to each employer, followed by the more detailed Experience History section. While this template is set up as a two-page resume, it can easily expand to three pages. While two pages are always preferable, it is common for an executive resume to run over three pages and this format is especially popular in this situation. This is because the Success Highlights section provides an "at a glance" summary of your career experience followed by a more detailed summary, and allows you to call attention to career highlights from an early career that may otherwise go unnoticed.
Besides just a template for experienced candidates, this format can also be a great choice for career changers. In this case, you would use the Success Highlights section to call out the most relevant qualifications in your background, related to the career change you wish to make. Rather than listing company names in the left column, use the left column to categorize the achievements with keyword phrases. When used in this way, this is what is known as a hybrid format resume.

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!
