Here’s how you make a resume without Word:
- Find a resume template you like in a program you do have. Pages works for Mac users, while Google Docs, OpenOffice, and other online options also offer resume templates.
- Save or download your resume as a Word document or PDF.
- If possible, send your resume to someone who has Word to test the formatting.
- Send your resume to the hiring manager, using the file format the job ad requests.
Alternatively, use Word for free at your local library. Word is always the best option because it gives you access to the most professional resume templates. Also, some applicant tracking software (ATS) systems struggle to read non-Word files.
