MS word templates will give your resume a professional and artistic look. They are also designed to be easy to use and are very creative and you can be sure to have an attractive application to land you your dream job. They are created by professionals who understand exactly what the job market calls for.
Beyond just ensuring that your resume looks like all the other resumes out there, templates are also generated as "one_size_fits_all" solutions. Do your career, your unique work experience, and your individual goals really fit in a one_size_fits_all format? For the vast majority of people, the answer will be no. Very few professionals have a completely linear, untarnished employment history. If there are any 'problems' in your background__such as a period of unemployment, too frequent job changes, a demotion, or any number of other challenges__a resume template will only accentuate and call attention to the negatives.
