Create a resume by using a template

When you install Word, resume templates are automatically installed on your computer. In the Word Document Gallery, you can browse through these templates and open a new document that is based on any one of them.

Tip: To automatically include personal information such as your name, address, and phone number in a Word resume template, on the Word menu, click Preferences, and then click User Information.

  1. On the File menu, click New from Template.

  2. Under Templates, click Resumes.

    Tip: To quickly find all resume templates that are available through Microsoft Office Online or on your computer, in the Word Document Gallery search box  Template Search field , type resume.

  3. Double-click the template that you want to use.

    A new document that is based on the template appears.

  4. Click any placeholder text in the document, and then replace it with your own information.

    Note: The Latin text (for example, Lorem ipsum dolor) in some templates is placeholder text and is provided only to indicate where to add your own text.
