There is one thing that you do not want – and that is to let your resume look like it has been written using a template.
The resume wizard in Word helps when you are struggling with writing a resume, but it can be quite cumbersome if you want to edit it. Those who have been this way know what we are saying!
While you can take ideas from templates, it is always better to write your resume from scratch.
This way, if you are sending your resume electronically (which most of us do), the hiring authority will not have problems if he or she wants to insert a comment or scroll through it.
Believe us, when you scroll through a preformatted resume, it can be quite a horror with all the headings coming alive as the cursor passes over them!
You can use the following easy to navigate resume sample:
