Why choose a Word resume example?

Simple, it’s due to the fact that Word is a well-known and widely used word-processing software. It has many features that can help you write your resume without the fear of making any errors, and then design it without having to learn how to use a new program. In fact, by using Word, you can export your document in PDF format after you have finished writing it, adding a professional touch to your application.

However, make sure that the document matches your version of Word before downloading it.

What should I not include in a resume?

Indeed, some information can, and should, be left out of your CV.

That is to say that personal details have no place in a resume. It is also illegal for employers to ask for details on:

  • Marital status
  • Social security number
  • Nationality 
  • Sexual orientation
  • Spiritual beliefs
  • Age

Can I customize the resume examples to match my brand and style?

As a matter of fact, all our resume examples are customizable to help you reflect your brand and style. Whether you’re a freelancer or in the creative industry, you can freely make the adjustments necessary to express your identity.

Moreover, you can change the color schemes, add or remove sections, and adjust the font sizes. You can also include a photo or logo to help your CV stand out. In other words, the possibilities are endless with our customized templates!

Should I include a photo on my resume?

Adding a photo to your resume can seem like an excellent idea. However, make sure that if you do end up adding one, the country you are applying to requires it. Recruiters in countries like Spain, France, and Portugal expect to see a photo, while those in the UK for example don’t. In fact, in the UK it is considered distracting to use one and leaves room for discrimination.
