Simple Fillable Resume Form (Florida)

We created a fill-able form that works as a template for a very basic resume. The formatting we used is the preferred set-up our Workforce Alliance partner recommends. We have this loaded onto our public computer desktops for easy access by patrons. We found that many patrons with low digital literacy struggle with using the MS Word resume templates available (mostly because they are created with tables) so we came up with this alternative.
