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

    • 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!

    • 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).

    • Hi Ruby, the easiest/fastest way is to apply another (custom or existing) color palette: go to Design > Colors. Good luck!

  1. The language was set to French, so the Spelling & Grammar checker is in French, as well. It doesn’t seem to let me change it. Well, I can change it, but the proofing tool is still defaulting to French.

    I am using the latest version of Office 365. I contact Microsoft and they said it is happening because your template is not compatible with their latest version of Word.

    • Hey Gary,

      I don’t know what to say: our templates are created with Office 365 (with the latest version, well of course at the time of the release… but there should not be any compatibility issue, as they are quite recent). I just checked and edited this template, and don’t see the issue with French, English should be the default language… Do you have a French version of Office? Try copying the whole template and paste it onto a new fresh DOCX document. Please let me know how it goes.

      Solution: select the whole document (CTRL+A), and set another proofing language (Review > Language > Set proofing language…)

    • Hi Nades, normally this layout is made so that you can have more than 1 page. So basically just add your content… You may need to make some customization though, depending on the type of content you have. I’d recommend that you work with visible gridlines (click a table then Layout >> View Gridlines), and with the formatting marks

  2. Hey Man!
    How to edit Contact side bar, i wanted to add icon of behance (with its link) below the address row. Here how to edit icons of contact suppose if i wanted to replace the icon of linkedin with behance. How it is possible?

    • Hey Abdullah, to select/remove the icon, you may have to click 2 times the shape: first, select the whole shape, and then the icon inside the shape. You can remove it and add yours. Hope that helps!
