Microsoft Word also comes with built in templates. You likely will have to download them to get access, but this is quick and easy. While it may vary depending on which version of Word you use, the basic process is the same. The easiest option is to search within word using the term "resume." In the newest version of the program, when opening a new document, you immediately see a page that lets you open a blank document or search. Use this search box to find the templates. Microsoft also provides these templates online here.
If you want more options, do a search for templates online. Use the results to find links to an array of different templates. You may find ones for specific jobs or industries. Others fit different goals and backgrounds, such as templates for first-time jobseekers.
Using a template to create your resume takes some of the guesswork out of the process. It also makes it a little easier since formatting is already done for you. FInally, it provides you with a good guide to what information to include.
