How to use the free Career Reload templates?

We offer a variety of templates in different file formats. All templates use the system font. Most of the templates are direct files, and you don’t need to unzip them.

Here are the softwares you need to edit the templates:

  • Word templates (.docx): PC: Microsoft Word 2007 or later / Mac: Microsoft Word 2011 or later
    • ONLY the ATS-resumes are editable with Open Office, Google Docs, and Pages
  • PowerPoint templates (.pptx): PC: Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 or later / Mac: PowerPoint 2011 or later
    • You can edit the PPTX files with Google Slides to a certain extent. To use Google Slides you need a FREE Google account
  • Photoshop templates (.psd): Photoshop CS or CC (will not work with Elements since layers are grouped)
    • Due to the large size of Photoshop files, they have been zipped. Before you start, decompress the file first. Use operating systems’ unzipping program or unzipping software such as 7zip or WinZip.
  • Google Docs templates: You need a FREE Google account
  • Pages templates (.pages): iWork Pages or the FREE iCloud browser version (also available for Windows)
  • PDFAcrobat Reader. You can use the free version to print and fill-in the worksheets.

As you can see, there are some template categories that you can get started for free with even if you don’t have any software installed on your computer.

I get a blank page when I open the file on my document editor

The most common reason for this is that you are trying to open the file with an incompatible software/app. Please view the answer to How to use the templates and make sure you are trying to open the template with the right software.

What is the size of your templates?

All templates are in US letter format, the commonly used paper size in personal or professional computer printers. The exact measures are 8.5 X 11.0 inches. This often scales well on A4 when printing.

I get an error when trying to download the files

There are few reasons for getting an error when downloading the files

  1. You are using a proxy server
  2. You used a direct link to access the download.
  3. You are using an ad blocker.

Please always access the download from the template page via the download link.

Are your resume templates 100% free?

Yes, all of our resume templates are 100% free for personal use. We do not have premium subscriptions, we do not charge for any services, and we do not sell anything. The site is funded by ads and affiliate marketing.

Is it possible for me to resell these templates?

Absolutely NOT! All of the templates created by Career Reload are meant for personal use only. Reselling or redistributing these products is not allowed under any circumstances. You may refer to the license page for more information.
