What tool do you use to build your resume?

Looking to update my resume and would like to crowdsource opinions :) I need it to be able to export as PDF and do it in a way that it can be auto-scanned by application tools (my previous export was read backward by the application software (for instance my cell number would be )DCBA instead of ABCD). I could do it from scratch in Adobe, but I'm looking for something more efficient and cost-effective. Obviously the designs must be good! StandardResume is not working anymore for me and the dev is not replying to my messages /shrug.

    Very minimal, basic and standard.

    Minimal, available anywhere, and easy to update. I've used Standard Resume recently as it means I can download a well designed CV whenever I need it.

    If you want a great visual resume, then I'd recommend using Canva and you export as a PDF, but the editor can a be a bit fiddly at times.

    I used Novoresume too when it was free. Easily one of the best tools yet. It's premium now though.

    The templates are the best I've seen, the ability to import and parse your data on LinkedIn is smooth and accurate, and the price is right. That's not the unfair advantage, though. The ability to effortlessly link your VisualCV to your own personal domain name or a subdomain, complete with visitor analytics, is what makes me such a huge fan.

    This might seem like an unusual way but yes people have been making their CV over a bot. Basically resume is like sharing a story about yourself and getting in conversation with the other person. What better way than doing this over chat. Here is an example of how Brenda does it -

    Disclaimer - I built this. Putting that aside, why should you use it? Because it provides a (growing) range of well designed resume and cover letter templates, and an easy to use interface. Best of all though, it's free (with no paid tiers) and no predatory pricing. Check it out!
