Online Resumes

Use of Resume Templates

As a general rule, it is a good idea to avoid using templates. Resume templates can help you get started if you have never built a resume before but likely will resemble a document thousands of other job seekers are using. If you do use a template, make sure you modify it to make the resume yours. Employers can often spot a resume template. Each time you submit a resume, it should be written for the exact position you are applying for.
