The Perfect Resume Template for Tradespeople: Lots of Room for Equipment, Technology, and Other Specialized Skills
People who work in the trades often need more room on their resumes to list specialized equipment skills, technology skills, and other specialized skills. The Tradecraft Resume Template is a simple but flexible resume template that was created with the needs of tradespeople in mind, although it is easily customized for use by any professional.
This resume template for tradespeople takes on a whole new look when you change the colors, which is as easy as a couple of mouse clicks.
No matter what profession you work in, a standout resume can make all the difference and the Tradecraft resume template will definitely help you do that.
A good resume template will also help you in creating a resume that is structured to help you communicate your strongest qualifications. The tradecraft resume template is structured to give you space to include all the important keywords that are necessary to optimize your resume for an applicant tracking system (ATS) while still appealing to the human reader, drawing their eyes to the most important points.
While the Tradecraft resume template includes graphics, they are included in an ATS-friendly way. The same is true of the header contact information set up in a simple two-column table. That too is ATS friendly.
Available separately, the Tradecraft resume addendum, references, and cover letter template are designed to coordinate with our Tradecraft resume template and will help you make an unquestionable positive impression. See all the templates in the collection:
As with all our template collections, MS Word is required.
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!
