Our free resume templates can be personalized to suits your needs and individual circumstances. Many of the templates on this site are our own design. If you’ve searched online for free resume templates, you already know the problem. There are a few dozen different resume templates available online, but most of them suck. Many were created in late 90s. Do you really want to hand that job interviewer a resume that was created using a template nearly two decades old? Most of our free resume templates were created in 2015, not 1995.
The most common types of resumes are the Functional and Chronological. When most people think of a resume, they picture the chronological format. While certainly the most commonly used, the chronological resume creates issues for workers who fall outside the traditional lines. If your employment history is weak or you have a limited work record, the chronological resume probably won’t work for you. The functional resume will allow you to showcase your job skills and experiences while placing less emphasis on the chronological order of the actual jobs.
We have hundreds of resume templates, free and ready for download. If you’re looking for sample resumes, try our Professional Resume Templates web page. For your convenience, our resumes are listed both by category and by industry.
All of our resume templates can be customized. Replace the sample text with your own wording. The sample text is provided to show the type of information you should include in the section. All of our resume templates are in Microsoft Word, which is the easiest program to utilize. When drafting your resume it’s important to list your skills in order of importance to a potential employer. If you spent 90% of the time at your last job doing custodial work, list that skill first if, and only if, the new job will involve extensive custodial work. List your skills in order of importance as they pertain to the job you’re applying for, not necessarily by the amount of time you spent on the particular tasks at previous jobs.
