Free Template for Resume – Basic and Light

free template for resume

When you want simple, basic, and just a small touch of flair, you will want to download this MS Word resume template we call “basic-light.” The term “simple” in this context means that your executive summary, skills, work experience and education are laid out in simple sections for easy scanning by a potential employer or recruiter. The term “basic” means that you will not have lots of glitz and frills – something that may turn some readers off.

What you will have with this template, though, is a document that will “fit” almost any organizational “culture,” from conservative and traditional to the more progressive. It is also ideal for candidates who do not have lengthy employment histories – the summary and skills take up almost 1/3 of the vertical space, and it will be easy to fill the other 2/3 with a few employment entries and your education.

This format will give you a great balance. Simple resume layouts are often the best after all!
