If you love this high school teacher resume template format but work in a different segment of the education industry, you can easily change the entire look and feel of Secondary Education Edge simply by changing the color scheme (as easy as a few mouse clicks) and changing the graphics. For examples of how you might do this, take a look at our Early Childhood Education Resume and Elementary Education Resume collections. For an optional design, check out this teacher resume template from our TeacherWorks Collection.
Resumes designed specifically for your industry help you to stand out and get attention. What colors best represent your industry or profession? Thinking about this question can help you choose a color scheme that helps to immediately focus your resume while aligning with the expectations of your industry and profession.
The colors used in our Secondary Education Edge high school teacher resume template and the coordinating documents within the whole collection were chosen purposely. While blues and greens are the primary colors chosen because they convey intelligence, competence, responsibility, and integrity, among other brand traits, many other colors would be appropriate and look good as well. Just remember to change the colors in the other documents--the resume addendum, references, and letterhead if you use them, so all the documents present a cohesive appearance.
The Secondary Education Edge Resume Template has been designed to provide ample room for keywords, but in a format that is both friendly for the human reader as well as for applicant tracking systems (ATS). The testimonials section on the second page of the Secondary education resume template is set up in a text box. If you apply for a position using the Word version of your resume and it is entered into an ATS, in most cases this will not be read. This means that you should include any important keywords in this section in the body of the resume too. The same is true of the Key Strengths graphic on the first page. If you apply for a position using the PDF version of your Secondary education resume, most ATS will “read” and parse the text in these graphics.
You may optionally purchase coordinating Secondary Education Edge resume addendum, references, and letterhead templates. Using all the templates available in the Secondary Education Edge Collection will allow you to present a cohesive and impeccably professional brand image. See all the templates in the collection:
