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.
