Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What file format are the templates in?

A: These templates are provided in fully-customizable Microsoft Word .docx format, which offers the greatest flexibility and control for precise page layout. We recommend always sending your documents in PDF format to ensure that they look the same to the reader. 

Q: What pages are included?

A: Each template includes:

  • A one-page cover letter template
  • A two-page résumé template
  • A matching reference list accompanying the résumé

Q: What should I include in my cover letter?

A. The templates contain sample text loaded with advice and tips for writing a strong, compelling cover letter. 

Q: How should I organize my résumé?

A: It's done for you in these templates, using our proprietary Experience Matrix™ Résumé format. Specifically, you'll want to include a header, professional objective, professional experience, education & certifications, and references, in that order.

Q: Should I limit my résumé to one page?

A: No, in most cases it's important to include more detail than will fit on a single page. We recommend 2-3 pages including references for most leaders.

Q: What sections should I avoid including in my résumé?

A: These templates are carefully designed without sections that tend to contain unsupported claims, e.g. a "skills" section that paints a rosy picture without evidence.

In general, you'll want to include as much specific evidence of your competitiveness as a candidate as you possibly can—and that's what these templates are designed to highlight.

Q: Do you have a money-back guarantee?

A: Yes, if you're not satisfied with the templates, contact us within 30 days at 1-800-861-5172 or [email protected] for a full refund.
