  1. Is it possible to make this a two-page resume? I’ve tried to insert a page, copy and paste, etc. without much luck. I was hoping to not have to individually copy and paste each box, then try to match it up visually. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Thomas, the template has been intentionally designed as a 1 page resume. With that being said you might be able to duplicate the page by making a selection of the entire document (Ctrl + A), inserting a blank page and pasting the copied elements within it. You might have to select a special paste option to make it work. Good luck!

  2. Thank you so much, I shared on Twitter and was able to download. Im having a problem inserting an image inside the circle as there is no option to place the image via format, shape….. Im using word 2016, is this not compatible or am I doing something wrong. Once again thank you very much, these templates are outstanding.

  3. I have solved my previous problem of placing an image but can you explain why exporting loses all the formatting of template? I open with calibre so i can convert to an epub, but the template is just a mess.

    1. Hi Dean, I’m glad to hear that you have figured out how to insert the image. As for the formatting, I’m not sure why you are trying to convert to epub format which is meant for ebook. I would suggest to save your resume in PDF format once you have done editing.

      Feel free to reach out directly via the contact form with any question you may have.
