If you've pulled out your resume recently, you know that formatting a resume in Word can be, well, tricky. Manual formatting problems could be a signal that it's time to give your resume a rehaul; I recommend starting fresh with a free Word resume template.
Bold headings, paragraph indentations, italization for emphasis, and bulleted lists are a few formatting options that you might be struggling with as you revise your resume. According to resume expert Karen Hofferber, you should update your resume at least once a year, but I don't need to tell you that manual formatting can turn that annual chore into a spectacular headache, especially if you're reformatting the resume you originally created in Microsoft Word 2000.
You can find literally dozens of free resume templates on Office.com, from resumes designed for a specific job industry such as nursing to resumes that highlight relevant experience for making a career change.
A pre-formatted resume template does all of the heavy lifting for you. Simply choose a template, download it to your computer, and replace the sample information with your own professional experience. You'll still need to make those annual updates, but a well-formatted, well-designed template saves you time and energy that most of us would prefer to spend doing almost anything besides fiddling with our resume.
Developing and updating a resume that reflects your unique experiences is an art form. For more information about creating resumes, check out this terrific resume series by guest blogger and resume professional, Karen Hofferber, for The Office Blogs.

How do you edit an MS Word template. I am trying to change the background text in the funeral template to say Life celebration and replace the words In Loving Memory.
Unfortunately in this case the template designer chose to include the words as part of the image and you would have to replace the image to accomplish your task.
Thanks for reading!
How about the issue of varying the templates...you dont want them all looking the same
I'm of a mind that your experience makes a resume stand out from the others more than a unique template format. Do you disagree?
Using a template to write your resume can be a good starting point. However, I find it easier to start from scratch. I've posted a video on how I created a professional resume from scratch in Word 2010 here: www.businessproductivity.com/.../create-a-professional-resume
You address truth issue on that topic. In my opinion you handled it in a professional way. I hope you continue in this way, with your unique ability of writing
