Creating your resume is important. Potential employers will be scrutinizing the resume and can tell the kind of person you are by what you include and how organized it appears. The same goes for the cover letter you send out together with the resume. It can be quite tedious trying to make the resume from scratch. Chances are you might end up excluding some important areas and including others that are not that necessary.
The curriculum vitae templates are also designed to match with your career stage. This means that if you are a fresh graduate you will find templates that don't concentrate on work experience, but instead concentrate on your skills and qualifications. If you are more experienced, you will also find templates with a style that concentrates on your skills as well as experience to make an impression on your potential employer. There is something for everyone when it comes MS Word templates.
