Resume Template 8

Resume Template 8 is in a scannable, technical format. In this case, it's essentially a combination format with a Skills section.

But you can easily convert any of the other resume templates into a technical resume template, by inserting a Skills section near the top or using the Summary section to highlight your technical skills. See Resume Formats for more information about formats.

You may download this technical resume template for free and modify it for personal use. It's an RTF file, which is compatible with most word processors (such as Microsoft® Word) and safe to download.

But first, please read the Important notice below. It includes the download link.

This technical resume template has the headings listed above the sections. If you'd prefer one that has the headings listed to the left of the sections, see Resume Template 4. Refer to Resume Templates for more formats and styles you may download.

The resume template format (line spacing, margins, fonts, etc.) displayed below is a little different from the download version. That's because Web browsers and word processors display pages in different ways. The download version is better formatted.

If you copy and paste this resume template from your screen instead of downloading it, the format might not stay intact. That's because copying picks up background Web-page formatting that might not be understood by the software application into which you paste it.

[Mail Address, City, State, Zip Code] • [Phone #] • [Email Address]
OBJECTIVE

[This resume template section is often omitted in modern resumes. Whether or not to include it is up to you. But it might be better to start your resume with what you can do for employers, verses implying what they can do to help you meet your objective. Delete this section from the resume template if you don't use it. Otherwise, describe your career goal in one to three brief sentences. For specific job openings, tailor your objective (and your entire technical resume) to closely match each job description without embellishing.]

SUMMARY

[Summarize your most important qualifications in a few sentences. Alternately, highlight them in the bullet (•) list below, one per bullet. (Ideally, summarize here, then highlight specifics in the bullet list.) If you're applying for a specific job, tailor them to the requirements in the job description, as closely as possible without embellishing. Incorporate action words and industry-standard keywords. If needed, rename this section to better fit what you write, such as Profile, Qualifications or Background.]

SKILLS

[Summarize your most important technical skills, certifications or both. Alternately, highlight them in the bullet lists below. (Ideally, summarize here, then highlight specifics in the bullet lists.) If you're applying for a specific technical job, tailor this section to match the job description. Incorporate action words and industry-standard keywords.]

  • If you've earned certifications or completed special technical training instead of a college degree, delete this part of the education section and use the one below.

[Certifications, Technical Training or School Name]
[School Name, City, State or Certifications or Technical Training]
[Optional brief description]

  • [List certifications or technical training credentials you've earned, in addition to your college degree if you have one.]
  • [But if you've highlighted certifications or technical training credentials in a previous section, don't simply repeat same here. Instead, use this part of the education section to provide details or just delete it.]
  • [Rename this section as appropriate.]
[EXTRA]

[Optional extra section for what you think is important to emphasize; for example, relevant military duty, awards or membership in career-related professional organizations. (Personal hobbies and interests are no longer included in U.S. resumes, because they have too-often given the wrong impression.) If this section is more important than another, move it up in your resume. Delete this section from the resume template if you don't use it.]

REFERENCES

References available on request. [This resume template section is often omitted in modern resumes. Employers now assume that you'll provide references when asked. If you want to keep it anyway, just delete this bracketed text.]
