Presentation Tab

The Presentation tab is your gateway to customizing the visual aspects of your resume, enabling you to choose from a wide range of templates, fonts, line heights, accent colors, date formats, alignments, skills layouts, and much more.

Navigate to the "Templates" option and select the template that best suits your needs.

Selecting a Template:

  • Begin by accessing the "Templates" option and choose the one that suits your requirements.
  • Click on the preferred template to proceed.


Next up, personalizing the resume to make it uniquely yours. Start by adjusting the following elements:


    • Font: Select a font that reflects your style and enhances readability. Experiment with different fonts until you find the one that best suits your taste and the tone of your resume.
    • Line Height: Adjust the line height to ensure optimal readability and visual appeal. Feel free to adjust it according to your preferences and the overall layout of your resume.
    • Accent Color: Choose an accent color that complements your content and adds visual interest. Consider your branding colors or personal preferences when selecting the accent color. Make sure it contrasts well with the background color for readability.
    • Date Format: Customize the date format to match your preferred style or regional conventions. Common date formats include MM/YY, short name months, or written out in full (e.g., January 1, 2024). Choose the format that aligns with your preferences and the expectations of your audience.


Adjusting Template Elements:

Once you've selected a template, you can fine-tune various aspects to tailor it to your needs:
