The Paisley Performance traditional resume template offers a traditional chronological format that has been modernized with an updated design, giving it timeless appeal. Developed for Microsoft Word, this traditional resume template includes an initials monogram that can easily be customized with your own initials. It is designed to be a very flexible resume template for experienced professionals and executives that is suitable for use across a variety of professions and industries. This is also a good choice as a board resume template.
Traditional resume templates typically include a summary section followed by a professional experience section, and then an education section near the end of the resume content. Additional sections such as a professional affiliations section, technology skills section, board appointments section, or others can be added as appropriate. Paisley Performance is designed with this traditional structure, but you can easily make it your own by changing the names of sections and creating new sections.
The butterscotch-toned colors of Paisley Performance are well suited for a traditional resume template, but this too can be easily customized to use colors reflective of your personal brand and tastes. Paisley Performance takes on a new “look and feel” when you change the colors. Here are a few possibilities:
A popular design element for traditional resume templates is a monogram block in which you can include your initials. The monogram block at the top of the Paisley Performance templates can be easily customized with your own initials, and there is room for three initials if you use a middle initial.
Even though the resume template makes use of a very traditional format, it includes contemporary touches to help improve readability, such as the shaded key highlights box in each professional experience section, and the key responsibilities section bordered by lines. As you write the resume, follow the prompts to create an accomplishment-focused resume written in the storytelling format that is also keyword optimized.
Available separately, the Paisley Performance biography template, references template, and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our Paisley Performance Resume template. See all the templates in the collection:

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!
