As a lawyer, attorney, paralegal, legal secretary, mediator, corporate counsel, or court reporter you want your legal resume to stand out and promote your qualifications in the best and most impressive way. This legal resume template for Microsoft Word is the solution that will make building your legal resume fast and easy.
This legal resume template stands out because it was custom-designed by a professional resume writer with decades of experience. The template was based on real-world, successful legal resumes.
The job market for people in the legal profession can be very competitive. To increase your chances of landing an interview for the job you want, you need to have a well-written legal resume that showcases your skills and experience.
But writing a legal resume from scratch can be time-consuming and daunting. That's where using a legal resume template can be especially helpful. With a legal resume template, all you need to do is fill in your information and save it as a .DOCX or PDF file.
There are many benefits to using a legal resume template. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it saves you time. The premium resume template in our Barristers Collection has all of the necessary sections and formatting in place. All you need to do is input your own information.
Another benefit of using our premium resume template for law professionals is that it will make your resume look exceptionally polished and professional. And if you're up against other candidates with similar qualifications, looking polished and professional could be the deciding factor in whether or not you get the job.
Beyond eye appeal, like all our resume templates, this legal resume is ATS friendly too. ATS compatibility is critically important when you are applying for any jobs. Your resume will usually be stored in an applicant tracking system (ATS) that will be used to track you as a candidate throughout the hiring process. Most of the resume templates available for sale on the internet are NOT compatible with ATS and the content will become jumbled when entered into an ATS. Beware of these templates! They will do your job search more harm than good.
The Barristers Collection includes an optional bundle of matching documents, including a resume addendum with prompts for additional legal qualifications and skills, a professional biography, references for legal jobs, and even a cover letter template.
