Resume and Letter Templates

Included here are templates taken from resume and letter examples in the text. These are Word documents in which you can manipulate your own data. This gives you the opportunity to practice writing in particular formats, or a foundation on which to base your own resume or letter.

Simply click on the template that you would like to view and use. You will notice highlighted (yellow) sections of each template. If you hold your cursor over these areas, you will see a suggestion or comment for this particular section of the template.

We hope these will help you as you develop your written communication and job hunting skills. Take a look at the figures in the text as you work with these templates – that way you can see what the final version will resemble.
