I have used a cover letter template in the past, and this was my first time to use a template in word processing. This template markedly helped me write a decent cover letter for a part-time job in my hometown. It is at this time that I also learned that the type of extension attached associated with the document when saving determines the type of file it will be. For instance in Word 2007, I noticed that if I saved a document with the default docx or docm, my file got saved as a document whereas if I attached a dotx or dotm extension the file becomes a template.
Word 2016 comes with excellent templates such as resumes, fax cover letters as well as invoices all having advanced functionality. These templates are a great resource which will allow me to concentrate on building quality content without worrying much about the layout as this is readily catered for by the templates. Additionally, templates will save me a lot of time as I will not be required to build everything from scratch when writing a document. Besides, the templates will improve my efficiency since it is possible to customize the templates, modifying them to fit my requirements consequently resulting in quality documents.
I am looking forward to using the resume template in Word 2016. This will come handy especially when I will need to secure a job opportunity by which time I will be required to have a professional resume. Since the template is customizable, I will be able to modify it to fit the requirements as I see fit. Secondly, I will have plenty of time to prepare a better professional-looking resume since I will not have to spend extra time digging through the internet trying to find a proper format online. Though the Word 2016 templates have not changed a lot from those of Word 2010, they are equipped with superior functionality and has a greater resemblance to Word 2013 templates. I think it is a wise move to install Word 2016 to enjoy the proficiency guaranteed by the word templates.
