THis document is not in English

Hi Rose! The body of the text is ‘Lorem Ipsum’, which is a Latin-based placeholder text intended to be replaced. The cover letter and resume template are there to assist with formatting but do not provide guides for paragraphs and sentences.

Didn’t find it very helpful. I had to delete the shape around the text to make it editable. Could expand the lines to adjust the borders. (My email wouldn’t fit so I changed the margins but couldn’t edit the column lines. Couldn’t delete the annoying logo section break on the first page.

Hi Dawn, sorry to hear you had trouble using this resource. To delete the logo on the first page, just click the logo itself until a box appears around it, then click delete on your keyboard. Please feel free to change the text size or location to suit the content you wish to use. Thanks for your feedback, if we can offer any more help, please let us know.

Hi, what would be the difference between ‘education’ and ‘qualification’ in a teaching resume? I do not just want to put the same degree twice as ‘education’ and ‘qualification’.

Teagan Boyd · Jun 14th, 2020

Holly (Teach Starter)

Hi Teagan, in a resume you would put your education as your schooling and qualification usually your university qualification.

Does this come in English ?

Sharyn Newton · Jul 6th, 2018

Holly (Teach Starter)

Hi Sharyn, the text in this resume template is just ‘filler’ text as you would need to include your own information. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for your comment.
