How to Create a Resume in Google Drive

A resume is a written document that contains a summary of your work experience– including positions held at each employer–and your educational background. The look and design of a resume is often as important as the content, because a well-organized and eye-catching resume is more likely to attract the attention of an employer. Google Drive, aside from being completely free and available on the web, also has resume templates that look great and are easy to fill in.

Step # 1 – Open Google Drive Template Gallery

Be sure you are signed into your Google account. Next, open your browser and go to “”. You’ll find a menu in the left side of the website. Go to “All categories” and choose “Resume and cover letters”.

Step # 2 – Choose a template

You’ll see all of the available resume templates, and you can preview them to find the one that works best for you. Click “Use this Template” to open it up in a fresh document, and start replacing the placeholder text with your own work experience, name, accomplishments, and so on. You can also create a cover letter following the same steps.
