We start by helping you select a template and format that is appropriate for the job you are seeking. With a design and layout that is right for job seekers across industries, our resume designs are easy to customize to ensure you are highlighting your most impressive achievements.
STEP 2Use our recommended writing suggestions or craft your own
Our builder guides you through the resume writing process by providing:
- Professionally-crafted bullet points can be used as-is or customized to relate directly to the job ad.
- Sought-after skills are suggested specifically for the job title you seek.
- Critical keywords are proposed throughout the writing process to make sure you’ve covered all your bases.
STEP 3Check for grammar and spelling
When the writing is done, our built-in grammar and spelling checks ensure your finished product is clean and free of errors that could sabotage your chance of getting past an applicant tracking system (ATS) or a human recruiter.
STEP 4Select a file format
Every company has a preference about which file format you should use to submit your application. We allow you to easily download, print, and send your resume and cover letter in the three major file formats – Microsoft Word, plain text, or PDF.
Resume Builder FAQs
Are resume keywords critical to getting an interview?
Yes. Selecting the right keywords is important to getting your application past an employer’s applicant tracking system and landing an interview, too. You should always use keywords that are specific to the job you are applying to. If you don’t, your application may not make it past the ATS and may never get to a human recruiter.
What’s the best format for my resume?
The ideal format for a resume depends on several factors. Recruiters typically prefer a chronological format because it makes it easy to assess a candidate’s career path. However, for those job seekers who are new to the workforce or who may have employment gaps in their past, a functional or hybrid format may offer more flexibility for emphasizing skills over work history.
How long does it take to make a resume?
How long it takes depends on how much work experience you have and what kind of resume you are writing. Some people spend hours creating theirs, while others invest much less time. Spending the extra time to tailor your document each time you apply for a job is worth the effort.
