Student Resumes

Formatting Student Resumes Using Google Templates

When copying and pasting from a resume template in Google Docs, it helps to move the formatting around AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE.

Copy and paste as much as you can from a working doc to your final doc so as not to disrupt the formatting. For vertical spacing issues, highlight the entirety of the rows and columns, and use the arrow and line function to move the entire area at the same time. Use format painter to match up fonts and sizes as you go from one heading to the next.
