The Muse has a wide variety of resume templates that are free to use and open in Microsoft Word, as of 2015. Users can browse categories that allow them to create creative resumes.
Users who are not sure what type of free resume to choose should focus on the resume that is most appropriate for their proposed industry. An individual who works in a formal setting such as a law office, for example, might choose a more conservative resume design than an individual looking for a creative job. In addition, the job-seeker may want to choose a template that shows off her individual style and personality.
