How to Create a Resume on WordPerfect

By Joanne Mendes

Creating a resume can be time consuming and frustrating. Formatting a resume and deciding what information to include can take a lot of careful planning and forethought. Fortunately, Corel's WordPerfect makes the entire process easy with their resume template. The WordPerfect template is a pre-formatted standard resume document that you can quickly edit and format.

Step 1

Open WordPerfect, select "WordPerfect Mode" and click "OK."

Step 2

Click "File" and choose "New from project." Select "Standard Resume" and click "Create." Click "Disable Macros" and click "OK."

Step 3

Click on "Display Name" and type in your name. Modify the appearance of your name by clicking "Name Look" in the left-hand menu and selecting a format option. Enter your address and phone number on the line below your name.

Step 4

Fill out your employment and education history in the sections provided. Type in your skill set in the section marked "Skills."

Step 5

Add more sections to the resume by clicking "Add a Section" in the left-hand menu and choosing a section heading from the drop-down menu or create our own section heading by choosing "Blank."

Step 6

Change the look of the resume by clicking on "Look" in the left-hand menu and choosing a style option from the drop-down menu.

Step 7

Add elements to the resume such as borders, bulleted lists or graphics by clicking "Add Elements" in the left-hand menu and choosing an option.

Proof your resume by clicking "Finish" in the left-hand menu and choosing "Check the spelling." Save the resume by choosing "Save" from the same menu. Print the resume by clicking "Print" also located in the "Finish" menu box.
