A Resume Template You Shouldn't Use

resumebadThis Word resume template has been downloaded almost 200,000 times — so if you're one of the people using it, you should switch to something else as a matter of urgency.

In a competitive job market, the last thing you need is the same resume as everybody else. While a template is a good way to make sure you cover the basics in terms of information, tweaking it a little in design terms (and customising it for each job you apply for) will help you stand out from the pack.


    200,000 out of a pool of 6 billion doesn't sound like a lot... OK OK all 6 billion won't be applying for jobs etc etc, but even taking the working population of Australia (10m?) its not many...

    Lies, damned lies, and statistic =]
