Résumé Templates You Can Download For Free

Aug 21 2014 - 12:39pm

It's hard to start a résumé from scratch, which is why the best way to go about creating one is to work off a template. You can get a sample CV from your friends, but there are also a few places online that let you download them for free.

Keep in mind that these aren't perfect, and you should be tweaking them according to your needs. For example, I personally would take out the objective statements that seem to appear in many of these templates. It's also good to change it up, just in case someone else in your applicant pool is using the same template.

Check out some of best templates I've found online when you click on.
