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 Or, you could take your own existing resume with an outdated design and transfer the content to this easy resume template, giving it an immediate modern look and feel.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.
Available separately, the matching Caribbean Seas biography and cover letter templates for Word are designed to coordinate with our Caribbean Seas easy resume template. See all templates in the collection:
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.
One of the best features of all Distinctive Resume Templates is the ability to change the color scheme to fit your own personal style and brand. The easy-to-use resume template in the Caribbean Seas Collection takes on a whole new "look and feel" when you change the color. Here are just a few of the endless options:
WHAT OUR TEMPLATE USERS SAY
Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.
While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.
When I was starting out with resume writing a little over a year ago, one of the most intimidating aspects was visual design of resumes. I didn’t want to have to learn graphic design to stand out—and with these templates, I didn’t need to! I was a little hesitant at first because I thought the templates might be too rigid or generic. In actuality, they are incredibly flexible and easy to play around with. I can customize any template with my client’s favorite colors in just two clicks—which means they never look exactly the same, even if I use them for multiple clients. Using the templates means I can just do what I do best—write—and then plug the text right into the appropriate section. It saves me literal HOURS of work and hassle. One of the best parts about purchasing from Michelle is that she is extremely responsive to questions. There’s a private Facebook group where she records screen share tutorials about how to switch up certain elements in the templates, and she's always been responsive to my emailed questions. My clients are completely thrilled with the unique, modern design of their resume, and I’m thrilled that I'm saving time and don’t have to learn graphic design!
I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.
I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!
