Tangible resumes not going away

While online portfolios have become increasingly popular, the need for tangible resumes is not going away any time soon. However, it is not always necessary for resumes to fit the standard, boring mold that everyone is used to.

Minimalism has also become popular as it is effective and pleasing to the eye. Listed below are 10 minimalist resume templates available for download. Utilizing a resume template such as one of these shows employers that you are willing to think out of the box and be creative.

That being said, it is important to keep in mind that these resumes may only appeal to specific employers. More traditional companies may not be as receptive to a creatively-driven resume.

However, it is always best to have options. So, in addition to a traditional resume, having one of these minimalist resume templates may someday come in handy.
