Which template style is right for you?
LiveCareer offers three styles — Modern, Creative and Traditional — to ensure that you are able to choose the best resume template for you. The template you select will depend on your industry and the position you seek. Read on to learn more about which style of resume template is right for you.
Our Modern resume designs feature clean and up-to-date layouts that focus readers’ attention on your skills and work experience. Simple but elegant, these resume templates are appropriate for use across industries.
Who should choose a Modern resume template?
- The clean and tasteful designs work across industries but are especially effective for those applying for jobs in forward-thinking fields, like tech, or advertising.
- Job seekers who want to project that they are up-to-date and on-trend.
- Applicants who want their credentials and qualifications to take center-stage over fussy design elements.
Choose one of our Creative resume templates if you work in an industry like film, advertising, graphic or UX/UI design, or photography. These templates help you stand out with hints of color and other thoughtful visual elements that bring your resume to life.
Who should choose a Creative resume template?
- Those in artistic or creative industries who want their personality to shine through on their resume.
- Applicants who have a non-traditional work experience background.
- Job seekers who crave a design that will stand out from their competition.
Our Traditional resume templates are perfect for those in conservative industries, like finance or insurance, who want an attractive design that plays it safe. Straightforward and simple, these designs were created to enhance your professional image and make a strong first impression to the powers that be.
Who should choose a Traditional resume template?

How to Choose the Right Resume Template
In the job search, you want to stand out while conforming to the norms of the industry in which you hope to work. The expectations of hiring managers will be different for applicants in a creative role, like advertising, then for someone seeking a job in a conservative industry, like finance. LiveCareer offers such a diverse selection of templates so that you can choose the best resume template for each role.
Here some questions to ask yourself before selecting a resume template:
- Does this resume template match the tone of the role?
A whimsical, colorful resume design might be perfect for applying for a job as an art teacher. However, it could be off-putting to a recruiter looking to hire a chief financial officer. Consider the culture of the organization and the specific role you are applying for when choosing your resume template. When you use LiveCareer’s Resume Builder, it is easy (and free) to switch between templates as you apply for roles at companies with different cultures.
- Will my resume get past an applicant tracking software (ATS)?
A critical part of a great resume design is readability — both by human eyes and applicant tracking systems (ATS), which scan resumes to eliminate candidates. All of LiveCareer’s resume templates are designed and tested to be ATS-friendly, offering you a better chance of having your resume seen by a human recruiter. Simply pick one that stands out to you, and use our Resume Builder to help fill in the text that will make a great first impression.
Resume Template FAQ
What should I include on my resume?
There are five basic sections on every resume: a header, resume summary, skills section, work experience and education. The order in which they appear will depend on the resume format you choose. As you learn how to write a resume, you’ll know how to choose the resume format that’s right for your level of work experience.
How long should my resume be?
The rule of thumb for resume length is that you should write one page per decade of experience with a cap of two pages. So, anyone who has worked for 10 years or less should write a one-page resume, while someone with 10 years of experience or more can write two. While LiveCareer’s resume templates can create documents of up to three pages, we recommend listing no more than 20 years of experience. Older roles will likely not be directly relevant to the new role you seek.
What resume templates are ATS-friendly?
Applicant tracking system (ATS) is software that scans resumes for keywords pulled from the job ad. These are usually words and phrases that describe skills and experience that are critical to the role. If your resume doesn’t contain the right keywords, or if your resume is created on a template that is difficult to scan, your resume will likely be rejected. All of LiveCareer’s resume templates are tested to ensure that they are easy for ATS software to scan. All you have to do is write a strong resume.
