Imagine your future employee opening your document for the first time. What is the first thing that catches their attention? Your skills? Or your experience? What if you are proud of both of them and want them to be highlighted in your resume? Here's where a combination resume comes in handy.
Of course, you can create a combination resume using our builder.
Start by choosing the Cascade template. Please note, that the example above is based on the Cascade template, available in Premium plan. But you can format other templates as well, our builder lets you discover your creative side!
Open the 'Add & Remove sections' tab in the menu in the upper left corner. You need to adjust the sections to match the combination resume style.
First, let's remove the section we don't need - find the 'Summary' section in the ADD/REMOVE SECTIONS list on the left of the side and click on the 'remove' button.
Now you need to add extra sections and modify them a bit.
In the ADD/REMOVE SECTIONS find the 'Languages' section and click on the 'add' button. This new section will automatically appear below 'Skills' section on the left side of your document. And that's the perfect spot for it.
In the next step, you need to add two sections. Start with 'References' - after clicking the 'add' button this section will appear at the bottom of the main section of your document. Click on the newly created section and drag and drop it at the very top - above the 'Experience' section.
Now you need to change the name of this section. Click on the pencil icon of the 'References' section. A new window will appear where you can delete the existing title and put a new one - 'Skills Summary'.
When it comes to filling this section, here's where the trick is! You want to leave this section empty so that only the title is visible.
To add the main body to 'Skills Summary' you need to add one more section. Find the 'Text' section in ADD/REMOVE SECTIONS and click on the 'add' button. When the new section appears, drag and drop it just below the 'Skills Summary' section. This will be the place where you want to put the information about your skills.
And congratulations! You have just created a combination resume.
