3 Useful Websites for Free Downloadable Resume Templates
There are a lot of people out there looking for work nowadays. With the economy the way it is, people who are out of work are having a hard time finding new work and kids out of college are having a really hard time starting out.
So, you can use all the help you can get. I am going to show you a few sites where you can grab free downloadable resume templates . Some of the templates are in PDF format and some of them are in Word format.
The first thing you should do is grab an old copy of your resumÃ© or a list of your past jobs and accomplishments.
That will help you immensely when you need to replace the generic information with your own.
The first site I found has very generic templates that will allow you to totally customize the resumÃ©. This is just for the formatting, there is little to no content that you will be able to use.
These are called Blank ResumÃ© Templates and can be found here: http://www.professional-resume-example.com/free-blank-resume-template.html [Broken URL Removed]
They offer three types of resumÃ© templates and they are Chronological format [Broken URL Removed], Functional Format [Broken URL Removed] and Combination [Broken URL Removed]. We will show you each of them here with a link to their respective PDFs

And then there is the combination of the both of them:
And next up, we have http://www.collegegrad.com/ with their resumÃ© section located at http://www.collegegrad.com/resumes/quickstart. The difference between these two sites is that Collegegrad breaks up their resumÃ©s by major. So, you can find a more specific resumÃ© geared towards you to customize. I choose computer science and got this: http://www.collegegrad.com/resumes/quickstart/compsci.doc
And last but not least, http://www.easyjob.net has free downloadable resumÃ© templates broken down in 3 categories:
And best of all – all this information is FREE! Between this site and browsing other people’s resumÃ©s on Monster.com, Hotjobs.com or any of the other popular job seeking sites you can customize your resumÃ© and make it pop! Remember a direct cover letter is just as important as a great resume!
