Writing A Resume? Use A Template!

Last updated March 4, 2020

Writing a resume is hard, whether it’s your first ever, or you’ve done it a hundred times. Formatting your resume doesn’t have to be. Instead of staring at a blank doc thinking about how you’re going to create your resume from scratch, use a template!

Resume templates take care of all the meticulous spacing, organization, and font-sizing that goes into creating a great resume. All you have to do when using a resume template is plug in your personal information, education, skills, and relevant experience.

We recommend using one of these free and easy-to-use templates from Google Docs!

“First Job” Resume Template

Straightforward. Clean. This is a perfect all-around resume--whether you’re entering the workforce for the first time, or already have experience.

You can find this template in Google Docs, or by clicking the above link and pressing File > Make a copy.

If you need help creating a resume, text “Job” to 33-55-77 to chat 1:1 with our trained career staff.

We can also review your resume completely free! Submit it here and we’ll provide actionable feedback and suggestions within 1 week :)
