I would like to recommend steering clear of Microsoft Templates. Those templates tend to be designed using "tables". Resumes that utilize tables, when uploaded in an applicant tracking software, tends to lose its format and when the software try to transfer the information (putting your name in name field, email in email field, etc.) most of the information will not transfer over correctly. As a result, information will be missing (or jumbled) within your application, and can cause you to be overlooked for a position.

If you're going to use a template, purchase one that is designed in Microsoft by a professional. Professional templates are rarely designed using tables and they are be the best option when you want to save money and not have to pay someone to do it professionally for you.
