5 Problems Observed In Resume Templates

If you have the right resume template to start with, doing your own resume is possible.

Some have the time, some follow instructions well, and for some, it just financially makes sense to do it yourself.

And I’m a huge supporter of the DIY job seeker, as you know.

So I have created my own resume templates that have helped job seekers land jobs faster than on their own and garnered years of testimonials that they work.

But over the years, to make my templates better, I have reviewed many other templates that are out there.

And I have observed 5 problems that I consistently see in templates that won’t help the DIYer…

I shared observations in this video here below so you can avoid the mistakes and save yourself some time and money if you are on the DIY path.

What would you add to the list of resume template problems?

What did I miss? What has frustrated you in the past?

Let me know your thoughts in a private message or a comment on the video.

Here is the link to the 3 resume templates https://gm125.infusionsoft.app/app/orderForms/Three-Easy-Plug-In-Info-Resumes that I designed that come with an instructional video and book to help you write powerful content that will resonate with your reader.

…and if you know, for whatever reason, you don’t want to do it yourself, DM me so I can give you the link to schedule a chat.
