Why the Basic resume template

One word - simplicity. The beauty of a basic resume template is that it fits every industry and every single recruiter will be able to read it.

Nobody will throw your resume out for lacking a bit of extra flavor in its design. Focus on your achievements and strengths is key to making the template work.

Getting a random resume template off the Internet has always been about much guesswork. We’ve eliminated that by talking to recruiters about what the perfect resume in 2022 should look like.

Layout & Design Features for the Basic Resume Template

We chose Lato for headings and body because of its maximum clarity and readability.

We recommend the black on white design for the basic resume template, but you can switch between base colors during your trial, or use the color picker on Enhancv Pro to match the company branding you’re applying at.

Section headings are left-aligned, saving a lot of vertical space and allowing for easier skimming of the text due to the larger font size.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why use a template in the first place?

Resume templates serve one single purpose - helping you get started with a proven, HR-approved format for your resume. From there on, Enhancv allows you freedom in rearranging, renaming or replacing the sections, colors, and backgrounds to make it truly yours.

Are these free resume templates?

Yes, most of them are. However, for newly registered users, there is a free trial period of 7 days. Once it’s over, Enhancv becomes locked and you have to pay to access the features. If you upgrade any time before or after that moment, you’ll be able to use many more templates and a robust editor that will improve your resume writing and design.

What's the difference between Enhancv templates and other templates I find online

The main thing that separates Enhancv resumes from the crowd is the modern look and feel that brings you the confidence you’re entering the current job market with an updated resume. Anyone can fire up an Office or Google doc editor and build a resume in a minute. With Enhancv templates, you get one step further and show your experience and personality in a way that’s memorable and impactful.

How did you create these templates?

It took us years of design work, research, feedback, consultation rounds, and implementation to create our resumes. Using the latest trends and with the hands-on help of recruiters and business psychologists, Enhancv built a tool that balances between your personality and professional deeds.
