We created a custom resume for Bill Gates to show that anyone can maintain a resume length of one page. Below you can download the Bill Gates one-page resume template for Word, PowerPoint and Google Slides.

Here are few pointers on how to keep your resume in one page:

  • Tailor your resume and cover letter to each job you apply for
  • Remove any unnecessary resume sections or facts. Include only relevant experience and skills
  • Emphasize your measurable accomplishments while putting responsibilities aside
  • Include keywords from the job description in your resume
  • Keep your work experience to 10 to 15 years

When you have lot of info and want to keep it all in one page you can adjust the margins, line height and font size but remember to keep the font size within 9pt – 12pt. This goes the other way around too, if you want to fill in the gaps, you can adjust the font size. Highlight titles so that they pop out and makes it easier for the recruiter to skim.

Note how action verbs were used on this resume.

Don’t want photo on your resume?

You can delete the image placeholder and lift the sidebar content up and add more skills. Now you have a clean resume template without a photo.

How to edit?

Replace the current filler text with the resume content you have crafted for yourself. Each section includes guiding text which makes it easier for you to write your resume. The template is in English but since everything is editable you can easily translate the headings and content.
