Keeping your CV updated with information about your education and career is something you should do whenever you begin a new course, job or role. Maintaining your resume is crucial because it is the first point of contact between you and a potential new employer. Consider this your self-branding tool to market yourself as a viable candidate.

Although the Europass CV template has been used frequently throughout the years, it is not a template we recommend job seekers use. When applying for a job, you want to make sure that you stand out from your competition, and by going the extra mile, you can show your potential employer that you're a better fit for the job.

To help you add a subtle hint of creativity to your CV, we have selected some of our favourite free CV templates in Word form that are easy to edit. You can also find more CV templates from Microsoft’s own template repository.
