Geoffrey’s favorite template

The Aesthetic modern resume template in turquoise, featuring a colorful gradient header, bolded section headings, and tasteful visual elements

Modern

The Aesthetic Resume Template

general thoughts

Although I talk up the “Connery” template in my YouTube video, the “Aesthetic” resume template is the new hotness.

favorite points

  • Clean, professional header that utilizes an aesthetic color gradient
  • Multicolor subheadings help make each section stand out
  • Work experience is the most emphasized section (and what I care most about as a hiring manager)
  • No skills bars (not a big fan of skills bars personally)
  • Template stands out visually
  • Template is organized nicely from a content perspective
