  • Microsoft Word used to have a template you could click on and just fill in your info. Its been a long time, so I'm not sure if the new Word still has this option.

  • Well just a tip don't write it in CAPS it looks like your yelling. But I just used a template I got off some website and used that as a starting place then added all my info. It worked great and got me a job.

  • Yep, it does. Click 'Tools', then click Templates and add-ins. The templates toolbar should appear to the right on your screen. Click 'General Templates' then click 'Other Documents'. Then you can click on whatever type resume you're looking for, 'Contemporary' 'Professional' 'Elegant' etc. GL!

  • Your resume should look like this:

    Name
    Address
    Phone
    email

    Intro/Summary: This is who you are, what you have done, and how that all applies to the position you are applying for

    List of companies/positions: Where you worked, what you accomplished, what your responsibilities were

    Skills: computer software, etc.

    Education: List the school name and degree or certification you earned.

    I hope this helped. I do career and job search coaching; send me a message offlist if you have any questions.

  • i think you might open careerbuilder or monster.com webs and look up people resumes. find what bests suit your background and change what has to be changed. i have not tried it, but someway employers go thru it. Ask a friend if its not that simple. i just had the though, not ever checked myself (mine resume is more of a unique, that's why). good luck

  • Baby133 is right. You can use Monster.com and get an idea. Use resume wizard on office and it will walk you through it. Keep the fonts simple and remember to put everything as simple as possible. Have a cover page that stands out. Just go online and check out other peoples resumes.
