Quality OpenOffice resume templates?


Anybody know where I can find relatively recent and high quality templates for making a resume in OpenOffice? When I google for templates I come across a few, some that are even for resumes, but most are really old, for version 1.1, and they all look pretty standard. Yall come across any that have a big "wow" factor?

You can also download templates from the Microsoft Office site. They are cab files, so you can just extract them using cabextract and then open the resulting template file with OOo.

I know and I thank you Michael, but like I said those 2 resume templates that are on that page are very old and they look boring. I would have thought that a huge application like that would have some kind of a 3rd-party template submission system, like Firefox has for third-party app developers, and it's disappointing to find out this isn't the case.

My personal opinion

I've been looking for a decent-looking Resume template to start with, and it looks like the one at http://smalldataproblem.org/ooextras/downloads/english/ (above listed as http://ooextras.sourceforge.net/down...php?tab=Writer) is the best, created by Kimberley Dall. The others are too plain. Resumes need color.

Try:
OpenOffice.org repository for Extensions | Welcome to the home of OpenOffice.org extensions!
http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/project

Lots and lots to choose from, the Oxygen templates are nice.

Has anyone found templates OO Writer Flyers? I've got to make dozens and dozens, and what I mean is that for each one of the dozen Flyers I create, they must be printed out several times as well. Thanks for the help and support.
