You need to be confident in your resume’This is a big issue in resume design.

‘It’s so hard to find a resume that has everything you need.
You need to make it really smart and well-written.
I think this is why the average resume is very boring.
It’s very simple and it’s boring.’
‘I think it’s a bit like when you have a picture of yourself in your profile.

Now Play ‘A lot of people just want to be a job candidate’Laura Bickrell has been in the field of resume design for years and she says she was inspired to create her own resume template by the work she did for a freelancing business.’
I think a lot of companies have a lot more flexibility than most of us are accustomed to and they’re looking for a resume in a different format to that of a job application.’
It’s a lot easier for a freelance writer to write a resume than a professional because they can just write whatever they want on a resume and then use it on their resume,’ she explains.
‘But if they want a resume to be something that can be used by employers, they’re going to want something that has all of the information they need.’
So the way I’ve done it is to combine a lot the information that I know about resume design, and then I’ve also used some of the skills that I’ve gained from doing freelance writing.
‘You can use that information to give a sense of authenticity to the resume and give it a bit more of a professional feel.’
Laura says she has used this template to generate thousands of resumes and is always looking for new ways to incorporate it into her portfolio.
‘One of the things I love about the resume template is that it has been extremely helpful in finding resumes for people who don’t want to hire you, or have a job open and want to apply for the position,’ she said.
‘So I try to include as many references as possible in my resume so I can be sure that I have people who can really recommend me to employers.
‘When I look for a new freelance job, I just look for people in the same industry and the same city and I make sure that they have all of my information.’
