Use a resume template in Word Online

Making a resume like this while you're online is quick and easy.

Note: This template comes with a cover letter, so you'll have everything in one document.

Resume template

Choose one of our resume templates, and open it in Word Online to make it yours.

Tip: If you're already in Word Online, get to the resume and cover letter templates by going to File > New, and then below the template images click More on Office.com.
click More on Office.com
You'll be on the Templates for Word page. In the list of categories, click Resumes and Cover Letters.

As you work on the resume, you'll probably want to rename it.

The template uses a table to line everything up. If you need to add more lines for job experience or education, add rows to the table by going up to Layout under Table Tools and clicking Insert Below (or Insert Above).
