  • They were created in Microsoft Office and use the default fonts of Microsoft Office 2010. If you open our CV templates and they do not appear the same as the preview on this page, it may be because of a compatibility issue.

  • All files are editable. If you cannot edit any of the templates after you download them, click “Enable Editing” on the message that pops up.
