No, no, no no! A resume template is not all right. A template has little or no flexibility so will, most often, not properly highlight your value to a prospective employer.
But it’s the easy way, isn’t it? And that’s just what it says to the employer — “This guy takes the easy way out. What will he do in the workplace?”
It only takes a little more time to construct a resume in Microsoft Word — Take that time!
I saw in Sunday’s Arizona Republic that Fountain Hills is hosting a resume workshop using Microsoft Word’s Resume Wizard. What a disservice to the public!
