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.

    CakeResume works well. It generates resumes in beautiful templates that can be exported to PDF formats.

      I tried several resume builders online. But this one is the best. Its customisable and simple at the same time.

      Hello team !

      Looks like you've bring something cool and new to HR.

      The tool is really simple to use, the onboarding is great. UI is also great.

      Once signed-up, I was really pleased to see that it wasn't only resume templates. Additional features like cover letters, sharing, application trackers are adding big value to the product.

      I might desert my beloved InDesign, because it will be easier for me to maintain and update my resume I guess.

      Even if I'm not looking for a job, I'd definitely comeback often to check how it is evolving and maybe use it for close friends or parents when it's needed.

    • this website has a great design. the ui/ux is really great. the team is really responsive, atleast the times I have occasionally come back to create a resume.

    A better way to build resumes for web and print

    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.

      So many gorgeous templates, some that turned my idea of what a resume could be on its head. Easily filled all the little details from my LinkedIn page, so all that was left was to conjure up those eloquent humble-brags that are the difference between getting hired and pounding the pavement.

    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've found this to be my favorite. Great tool for creating traditional-looking resumes. Pricing isn't bad and they retain your info even after suspending service until you need it again.

      I have used this CV builder for about half a year already and landed numerous interviews and a job with the help of it!

      Good thing is that all of your CVs are kept in one repository and very easy to edit according the needs of your new prospect job description.

      Say 6 months have passed and you want to update your old CV. But you forgot your damn password and have to go through everything again. The guys offer you a new access link in this case, so you don't have to worry about passwords or losing data.

      I love this product. The company.. not so much. Customer support is slow to respond, if they respond at all, and they only reach out with canned messages about very specific issues. I imagine competitors offering a better customer experience will knock Enhancv out of the market in the next 2-3 years.

    How about creating an interactive resume?
    • I was really excited to use this but was kinda left disappointed by the end result. I dislike the current Powerpoint too. What I do is, I make presentation slides on Adobe Illustrator and animate them using after effects and then combine them. It gives me much more freedom but also a lot of extra work... I can see the animation scope in Imaginators but the user friendliness is kinda missing

    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 -
