VIDEO: How to edit

All our resume layouts use "table structures" that set the position of each element. This is very different from "floating elements" templates whose elements always remain in a fixed position and are harder to edit. Please watch the video to learn how to view the table structures we have created for each template.


COMMERCIAL USE:

While your Plus membership is active, you can use these templates for any commercial purpose. That said, please be a "good sport" — if you re-distribute these files at scale, retain the links that point to You Exec. Those links keep our marketing costs low and allow us to focus on developing better resources for all our members. If you are customizing a resume for yourself, or someone else, feel free to remove all links that point to You Exec — after all, it is your resume
