This curriculum vitae layout is designed with a 2-column structure layout.

The package (.ZIP format) includes Microsoft Word files (.DOCX) in International A4 and US/Canada Letter sizes.


Optimized resume template for an easy customization

1) Clearly organized with tables

Most of the Word templates you can find online (even the most expensive ones) are simply built with text boxes and shapes. But every resume is different as information length and nature are specific to each of us. And it’s a nightmare to deal with when it comes to using the template with your own content. Tables, on the contrary, allow an easy and hassle-free customization, with no formatting or alignment issue.

Tip: to make the customization easier, enable the “View Gridlines” view:

  • click in a table,
  • then click the “Layout” table under “Table Tools” and click “View Gridlines”.

The “View Gridlines” option either shows or hides the gridlines for ALL tables in your document.


2) User-friendly entry forms: designed with Text and Picture Content Control fields

This free resume template is also very easy to edit and to customize with MS Word (DOCX format): it is smartly designed using Text and Picture Content Control functions from Microsoft Word.

    The picture is not showing and it won’t let me drag and drop a photo into that spot

      Hi @Sheri, we just re-checked, and it seems to be working fine. This template has been created with Word 365… which version do you have? Also, I am not sure it is drag & drop ready ; you should just click on the image placeholder to insert the picture, and select your ID photo. Hope it helps!

    how to add more stars under skills? for example from 3 stars to 4 stars

    • Zirk says:

      Hey @Al, the stars are already there, you just need to change the white (font) color to blue (or blue to white, depending on how many stars you want to highlight).
