Why use a template in the first place?
Resume templates show you’re efficient and help you along a predefined path many others have already gone through. However, you can easily customize Enhancv’s templates as to your own preference. They are merely here as a guiding point for you.
Are these free resume templates?
Yes they are. You can use them within a 7-day free trial period. Afterwards, Enhancv becomes paid. If you want to add more features, you can always upgrade. You get more sections, backgrounds, colours and fonts, font size, and entries.
Are these templates ATS friendly?
Full disclosure - ATS is not going to load any icons, colours and backgrounds. However, those systems are not perfect, either. They differ in their ability to sort out good candidates as they are solely based on keywords. So, some ATS systems look for “budget management”, for example, while others screen for “budgeting”. Or “project management” instead of “project coordination”. However, saying that a resume template is ATS-friendly is just a marketing trick to make you buy it. Enhancv is designed for human recruiters, not bots. In case you want to be extra sure, you can go with the clean, black and white, single column template and limit the usage of icons.
What's the difference between Enhancv templates and other templates I find online?
Here at Enhancv, we are building a process of assisted resume editing. From actionable advice for every industry, to smart bullet points, suggestions and content editing, we aim to give you all the tools, help and information you need to make your career move. One of the major differences between Enhancv and other resume builders out there, is the freedom you get when designing your resume. You can still follow the path we’ve paved for you, however, you can customize your resume at any time.
How did you create these templates?
Enhancv is built on years of hard work, research, professional design, testing, consultations, practical recruitment advice, feedback and implementation. We're not going to assume we are the best in every way, however, there's agreement out there from recruiters that if you want to stand out in your application, you go to Enhancv.
Do you have two page resume templates?
You can easily expand our base templates into as many pages as you want (though we encourage you to keep your resume in two pages or less). Have in mind that the free 7-day trial version has only 14 entries. While it's more than enough to create a decent one-page resume, in case you'd like to add more depth to your experience and job history, consider our upgrade options.
