Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of a creative Resume?
The field of education is in need of highly-adaptable, innovative educators who think outside the box. A creative resume will send the message that you are exactly who the school is looking for, and you are willing to put forth the effort required for the position you want. Your goal is to get in the door for an interview. A memorable resume, printed on one of our creative resume templates, is your first step!
What program do I need to edit the template?
Microsoft PowerPoint. We use PowerPoint instead of Microsoft Word for our creative templates because it has greater flexibility when manipulating text and images. A free version of Office 365 is available for teachers and students at https://products.office.com/en-us/student/office-in-education. You can try OpenOffice, NeoOffice, and Google Slides, but you may experience changes in font and formatting. We offer a full refund if you are unable to edit your template or are unsatisfied for any reason. Email email@example.com for more information.
How do I get the fonts I need for my template?
Some of our creative resume and portfolio templates include fonts that do not come standard with Microsoft PowerPoint. You may need to download these free fonts using the links that are included in the first page of your download. You can also choose to use fonts you already have instead of downloading the included fonts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need additional help.
What if I decide I want Red Apple Resumes to create a custom resume after I've already purchased a template?
No problem! We will deduct the cost of the template from our custom resume writing service for teachers. Email email@example.com for a discount code to use on your purchase.
How long will it take to receive the first draft of my resume and/or cover letter?
Once we receive your completed “Getting to Know You” form (as well as any other additional documentation, such as a current resume and/or cover letter), we will send you a first draft within 5 business days. You can purchase our Rush Processing service if you would like your first draft within 48 hours of submitting your information to us.
I ordered the Resume writing service and I've received my first draft. Can I ask for revisions?
Absolutely! Once we receive your completed “Getting to Know You” form (as well as any other additional documentation, such as a current resume and/or cover letter), we will send you a first draft within 5-7 business days. You will have two weeks from the date you receive your first draft to make unlimited change requests. Additional revisions beyond this two-week period are available by purchasing our Revision Service.
Can I upload my finished resume to job search platforms like SchoolSpring?
Yes! Simply export the PowerPoint file as a PDF file to upload as an attachment. Instructions for this are located on the first page of the template. You can also send the PDF to a professional print shop or email it as an attachment to potential employers.
Do you offer any discounts or referral benefits?
Yes! Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook pages for discounts. Encourage a friend or colleague to purchase our Resume Writing Service and we will give you a $10 TeachersPayTeachers gift card! Make sure they put your email in the Referral section of our "Getting to Know You" form. We will email you the gift card once we receive their form.
