Get a New Resume For Free with a Resume Builder

April 26, 2022

If you're currently out in the job market looking for employment opportunities, you might agree that one of the most daunting tasks of this process is building your resume. You have probably looked for examples online and tried to recreate them, or maybe you are the type of person who prefers to hire a professional resume writer to do the job. While these alternatives can be sort of feasible, we're here to tell you there's a third option that surpasses them, and that is using a resume builder to build your resume for free.

What Is A Resume Builder?

A resume builder is a tool that uses your information to put together a resume quickly and efficiently. They are usually interactive and automated but allow candidates to have control over the information, format, and design of the document.

Resume builders usually offer recruiter-approved templates depending on the industry, considering that, for instance, an engineer's resume is going to be completely different from a graphic designer's resume. Perks like these make resume builders very convenient for new graduates or people who are looking for a job for the first time in many years and may not know the current "rules" of successful job hunting.

What makes resume builders a better alternative to writing your own resume using a word processor or hiring a professional resume writer is that these tools are free and designed to create professional-looking documents easily and quickly. Therefore, if you are looking to build your resume for free, but want to make a good impression on recruiters, a resume builder is your best bet.

These are the most common sections included in resumes created with any resume builder online:

Header. This section includes your name and contact information like your email address, phone number and even your home address.

Summary. Some resume builders include an opening summary section where you can mention your strengths and achievements to catch the eye of recruiters. But remember, this should be done in a few lines, nothing too long.

Work experience. This section features information about your current and previous jobs, including your responsibilities and accomplishments in each role.

Education. This section will have your education information, starting with the most recent and including details like school name, the field of study, etc.

Skills. Here you can include your soft and hard skills. If you are unsure about what to add, do some research. We're sure you will find many skill lists online based on your work experience and field of work.

Additional sections. Some resume builders allow you to add other sections to make your resume even more unique. These sections can be honours you've received, certifications that you don't want to include in the Education section, publications, languages you speak, etc.

How to Use a Resume Builder Online for Free

Some people think that free means low quality and unreliable, but this is not true. There are many free resources online that can help you solve a problem or complete a task and won't cost you a dime, such as free resume builders.

To build your resume for free using a resume builder online, there are certain simple but important steps you need to follow:

  1. Gather your information. This is especially true if you are a new graduate or are looking to make a career change. You need to have all of your education documents ready, such as certifications, diplomas, and transcripts because you will need those details to back up everything you claim on your resume. You should also have the information of any internship, practicum and job experience you want to include, like start and end dates, responsibilities, accomplishments, etc. On top of that, you should know have a list of your soft and hard skills ready to go.
  2. Choose a template. Not all resume builders offer the same template options, but all of them do allow you to make some choices regarding the format, colour, and appearance of your resume. Choose wisely and remember that the way your resume looks will tell recruiters the type of worker you are, so use that to your advantage.
  3. Download and share. Once your resume is ready, download it to share it with employers or print it and take it with you to an interview. It's up to you. Just make sure that the final document makes you feel proud of who you are as a worker, regardless of the industry you belong to, and that you can feel confident about sharing it with hiring managers.
