Be Original: No More Resume Templates!

Even though you will use a traditional reverse chronological resume for Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) when applying for a job online, traditional doesn't have to mean a template.  The same goes for the resume you hand to the interviewer or networking contact.  Looking at lots of different samples to determine how you will overall format your resume is fine, but just picking a generic template that employers see way too frequently will not make for a positive first impression. Be a bit more original while keeping within the boundaries of what ATS and those viewing you resume expect, and see more response.  To your job search success!
