    You should look at it first before you make that comment.

      I actually am not a fan of this resume template.

      You mentioned the resume needing to be clear. However, little bar charts with no actual point of reference as to what they are measured against are absolutely useless and not clear.

        You may not like it, but I think it's the clearest, simplest and most effective resume template out there for communicating your information to a hiring manager fast.

        The bars are quite useful and clear to anyone who understands what they're used for. It's important for hiring managers to know where you feel your strengths are. The bars give them a quick overview of what you're great, good and average at.

        I looked at your resume and it lacks two of the most important things every resume should have, a description of what you did at each company and a self-summary. WIthout that you don't stand apart. Anyway, I don't want to argue, but after looking at your resume I don't think you have much room to talk.
