A resume template can help if your resume needs writing or rewriting. It's always useful to review resume templates and samples when you are writing your resume, so you can get an idea of what a resume should (and could) look like.

Use a resume template or a sample as a starting point for creating your own resume. Add your information to the resume template, then tweak and edit it to personalize your resume, so it highlights your skills and abilities.
