What users say about ResumeLab:

I had an interview yesterday and the first thing they said on the phone was: “Wow! I love your resume.”

I love the variety of templates. Good job guys, keep up the good work!

My previous resume was really weak and I used to spend hours adjusting it in Word. Now, I can introduce any changes within minutes. Absolutely wonderful!

Modern resume templates aren’t your thing? Don’t worry, we’ve got a bunch of other articles you might want to check out:


1. Cubic



This modern resume template is versatile enough to cater to the needs of experienced and inexperienced job-seekers alike. Thanks to its optimized resume format, the main section of this template offers plenty of room for your resume profile and work experience sections. In fact, it’s spacious enough to fit in some extra resume sections too, such as certifications on a resume, for example.

Expert Hint: In our resume builder, you can quickly move the sections around to try and see what a different layout will look like. Just drag and drop any section of your resume to any place you like and the contents will automatically readjust to fit into the new arrangement. 

2. Cascade




This is another one of our two-column modern resume templates. The sidebar on the left is where you can put your contact information as well as give your skills proper exposure on a resume. Cascade works great as a chronological resume template that you can expand by several additional sections.

Expert Hint: In some professional situations you may require a different resume outline, e.g. a skills-based resume. In our builder, you can quickly add and move resume sections around to change a chronological resume into a functional one.

3. Crisp




This modern resume template includes resume icons next to the section titles for improved navigation. Thanks to this simple solution the recruiter’s eyes can quickly locate the information they’re after. Also, the resume summary section stretches from margin to margin giving you a lot of room to show off your professional highlights.

Expert Hint: If you wish to give your resume a quick makeover, a simple color palette change can work wonders. With our resume builder, it’s just a matter of several clicks.

4. Initials




Just like the name suggests, this modern resume template gives prominence to your initials by putting them in a graphical element that resembles a logo. Because of this, it’s a good choice for those who want to build their personal brand.


Also, the template has been designed to maximize the use of space a single page offers. That’s why you can easily fit in sections like software, languages, certifications, volunteer experience, or accomplishments should the employer require such information.

Expert Hint: ResumeLab’s builder offers you a wide range of additional sections you can add. Just pick the one(s) you need and it will appear on your template.

5. Modern




It’s all in the name, again. This modern resume template makes good use of graphical elements to direct the readers’s eye just where you want them to look. The top and bottom bars delineate the two main sections of this resume’s layout.


Your skills are made to stand out thanks to the use of a visual grading scale right next to them. The section headings are marked with arrow-shaped ribbons for improved navigation.

Expert Hint: You can easily change the look of the visual grading scale. These could be squares, circles, stars or bar graphs.

6. Newcast




This modern resume template is also the first single-column resume on our list. One advantage of this kind of arrangement is that it can easily stretch out to the next page without interrupting its natural flow. So, if you’re in the market for a two-page resume template, you need to look no further.

Expert Hint: Not sure about the length? Our piece on how long a resume should be will give you all the answers.

7. Diamond




This modern CV template incorporates a prominent resume header for your name, job title, and contact details. In addition, there’s a timeline that spans across all sections leading the recruiter’s eye from one to the other.


8. Enfold




If Enfold looks strangely familiar to you, you’re right. This clean modern resume template is a mirror image of the Cascade template you’ve seen above. It offers all the same advantages, but from a different perspective.
