Resume Templates
Understanding the difference between a resume and curriculum vitae is more important before choosing a template. Curriculum vitae is used to for an academic education whereas a resume is used to apply for a job opening. Job aspirants should look out for a resume template rather than a curriculum vitae template.

The template of the resume which is actually the outline or the structure of the resume decides the positioning of every element of the resume. If this positioning is clear and clean with an equal weightage given to every element, it appears that there is a flow in the format and so the resume appears attractive. Such a resume neither looks like a piece of art which shows that you were keen about the outline of the resume rather than the content nor does it appear as an essay.

Do Not Fear Editing
Have you found a resume template that is almost fits your needs? Do not be afraid to move a section, delete graphic, or change a font to make it perfect for your job search. You do not need to keep the resume template completely in tact. Think of it as a starting point that you can add to or alter to feature your most marketable skills and experience.

Select a template that offers you some helpful advice on where to place specific information. You do not want to simply copy another persons resume information as your potential employers have just as much access to these templates as you do. Also when you are in an interview situation where they ask you about specific point on your resume, you will want to make sure that it is from your actual work experience as interviewers are very good at detecting when someone is stretching the truth a bit.

Education Details
Education details should be mentioned on the resume in an inverted pyramid style. The highest or most recent qualification must be mentioned first. Schooling details can be furnished only if the school is well recognized. Other qualifications like computer courses, languages or other valuable curriculum can also be mentioned if they are relevant to the position applied for. Awards and merits earned during graduation will definitely put on usefulness to the resume.

Once downloaded, necessary changes can be made in the resume as and where required. Just remember to follow the guidelines provided with the resume template well. There is minimum room for error. Once all this done you have a beautiful resume in front of you that would impress anyone. Walla! Its that simple. This grouped with an impressive cover letter should give any candidate a lead over others applying for the job, at least till the interview stage! The rest is entirely up to you.
