Résumés Love the Grid
Conventional wisdom argues that Microsoft Word is the best tool to make a professional résumé or CV. Knowledge of design made me certain that Excel would provide a simple solution for a grid layout template. Excel offers structure, simplicity, and typography to challenge a confusing Word document.
My template uses Alte Haas Grotesk to make bold, easy-to-read headings. The body font is Georgia which was specifically designed to be easy to read on the web – making it the ideal body font to use for job applications sent electronically.
For the job-hunters sick of Word, enjoy.
