Premium recent me by Claudia removed the primitive elements so you can use it for free if we go to the left Many of the layout menu here on the left and we click on the I for information. You will see the items off these template. So we have the background image, which is this mountain here is free. We have some other items are free and we have one item that is paid. And this is the premium element of wanting to remove in order to use this template for for years. You're so you You see here that the picture of this guy here is a paid element, so we actually don't want the picture of this guy. We want the picture of your picture here so it can be personalized to its your specific needs. So how do you? How do we remove that? Basically, we're him off this by adding another far or here on this space to do that, we goto uploads. And in here you just click. Find your image you can click on upload me much here, or you can just drag and drop the image here on the Ablow session. So you see the image here I have duplicated because I just upload it again so you can see how I how I do it. All you need to do now is click on the image and it opens here on the main, the sine ira. So little resize, thes toe to be very small. Just fit in here. Okay, Just click on, drop it here. You see, when I move the image inside the circle, it actually opens the much inside the circle. So when you see that just released the click on Now your picture is here on the main image off course next week And customize your name so you can change your name here. If you want, you can change your title phone number and you can cost mice all these information here you can change the phone how they change the fund. Basically, you click on the tax click on the arrow, pointing down toe open more options. Here, you can do the bold, italic or normal upper case left ride that you can you can center your tax in different ways on If you want to change the phone, you see here the first option ease. You have all the funds that are available on your computer right now. So let me undo these on leave, leaving us D for so the D for ease. Let's year also out. So let's go back to that. It's this one perfect. On the text here, you all you need to go to changes. Just double click, and you can start typing. Yes, you prefer also the skills. Same thing you can just added these as you want. You can add new skills here. Okay, on also, you have here on the right a measurement off how strong you are on these specific skills. So how do you change these? Basically, you double click on the on the circles and you have 12345 Esquire's here with different colors. So if I want to have like five stars here. So total domination of the skill I click on this one, which is gray, and I change it to black. So now I have five stars. If I want to have only three, I've changed his back to gray, so I have no three, three points for the specific skill. So this is how you customize. I hope you understand. It's very easy to do it on this. I'm sure this will make a huge difference on year resume application. Before we go to the next video, I'll show you another template that I really like. This is a template which is without a picture. So this is this actually looks like a resume cover peach on in here. You have your name, you have Why your address information? A small statement about you, About you professionally. Also, you have some. In this case, this guy is showing some films that he made in the past Work, experience, education. So the main points to call the attention off the company you are a plane are here on the on the resume cover and you could, you know really how to customise This is just double plague and change the phone, change the tax. Another model I want to show you that is free. Es especially for programmers. I really like is this one. So you see here again, The picture is here. You can change these to your picture, Lewis and ourselves off. Or the sign you have information, profile, experience, skills, allegations. So basically all are the same. All these templates have the same information or very similar information. But the sign that template is a little bit different. On what? What I invite you to do right now East to actually find the sign that is better for your specific application for your specific company that you are applying. I love this one, for example, which is premium. And if I click on I to get more information, you see that the only premium item is the father. So if you put your photo here, you can use this template totally free. Why? I like this Because this is this looks like an infographic and it's very easy to read. So name information about the person you see that location is here on big title. This is very important for companies, so they already see where you completely university or college achievements. Very important to the second thing they look, his achievement experiences here skills you again. You have all these thoughts showing that the how confident you are with this one specific skill software. You have a Facebook page here. You're what? Page and a twitter handle. So this is this this specific? The sign this specific resume cover have all the items, all the main items a company or a recruiter can this look is looking for And they can have all this information without meaning to read pages and pages off resumes that are plain and not with a good design. So this is very stripped on. I think will help you to get your next job, or at least get you to an interview, which is an amazing thing to do in the next video. I'll show you some websites where you can get great royalty for images that you can use on your the science on this case on the first example and we talk about the mountain and remember, we have the picture. Let me share here. This one, we have the picture off the mountain of the back So if you want to place other images here , I'll show you in the next video four amazing websites where you can find unlimited royalty for images to use on any project you have.
