A resume template that will help to win you the job you want, this easy-to-use resume template for Microsoft Word offers a versatile and adaptable format. The clean and attractive design is both ATS-friendly and easy to work with and customize.
The ability to easily customize a resume template is very important! Your resume needs to make you stand out, not blend in. You are one-of-a-kind and your resume must be too. When you use this easy-to-use resume template from our Caribbean Seas Collection, nobody will ever even know you used a template. You can easily add or remove sections, swap sections around, change the page length, and even change the entire color scheme with just two mouse clicks. And we provide video tutorials with every template purchase to show you how to do all of this quickly and easily.
The traditional chronological structure and format are a great choice for any professional or executive. Just replace the "dummy" text in the template with the text from your own resume. You could start from scratch and write your resume directly in the Word template. Or, you could take your own existing resume with an outdated design and transfer the content to this easy resume template, giving it an immediate modern look and feel.
Because this resume template was created by a professional resume writer for other resume writers, following the format will effortlessly help you abide by resume writing best practices. For example, the rule of thumb is that you should include no more than five bullet points in a row. More than that and they begin to blend together, often making the text harder to read rather than easier to read. Like all of our resume templates for Word, this easy resume template follows all modern resume best practice rules.
You should also strive to keep your text short and succinct. With the goal of making this an especially easy resume template to use, just follow the pre-set format in the template to ensure your resume is concise and easy to read. If you find your text to be too wordy, break it up into multiple sections. The rule of thumb for this is no more than five lines of text in a paragraph section (and fewer is better) and no more than three lines of text in a bulleted section (again, fewer is better).
The highlighted, shaded boxes are a modern resume design technique that makes it easy for you to call attention to the most significant accomplishments and contributions in each position.

Microsoft Word is required to use any of our templates. Microsoft Word is the standard in business and it is recommended that you create your resume in this format. Once you have finished editing your resume in Word and saved it as a .DOCX, it is easy to save it to PDF format too. This way you will have all the document types that you will need for your job search. Resumes created in Canva or Google Docs may not be compatible with ATS and are not recommended.
