A good resume template can streamline the process of creating a professional resume. It takes care of all the little easily overlooked details, such as the fonts, margins, bullets and alignment. This allows you to focus on writing your resume, and the job search itself.
Our resume templates make formatting simple. We take the worry out of proper margins and fonts.

Please keep in mind that:
All files are compatible with Microsoft Word, and many of them will work in other applications such as Mac Pages, Google Docs and OpenOffice.
We create our templates in Microsoft Office 2010 and use Microsoft Word default fonts. If you don’t have these fonts installed or use a different operating system, our templates might look different on your computer.
We use text styles and built-in color schemes to create our templates. Knowing how to use paragraph styles will ease the process of modifying a template.
While most resumes are US Letter size, some are A4. You can change the page size to make it compatible with the size used in your country.
For creative designs with colored backgrounds, consider setting the page color to “none” and print on high-quality colored paper. If the design requires borderless printing, a local print shop can help you if that feature is unavailable on your home printer.
