    Pros: 

    Easy to use, intuitive user interface. Very easy to customize.

    Cons: 

    Have more built-in sections, more templates, better flexibility placing photos

    The detault title of Certificate should be Certificates It would be nice to allow more customization of the header section where you can enter basic information about yourself I am missing references to sites such as GitHub, Stack Overflow, Twitter, etc It would be nice to have more templates In 2-column mode the formatting can be awkward if one section is really long (e.g. professional experience will likely flow over multiple pages with only a single column shown on some pages)

    Bertold Kolics has used this product for one week.

Hi, fellow Product Hunters 👋 After spending way too much time on creating our own resumes using InDesign, LaTeX and Word, we figured there's gotta be a more effective way to create an eye-popping resume 🤔 On the hunt for alternatives, we couldn't find a tool that is easy to use and highly customizable at the same time. So with FlowCV, we set out to bridge the gap between flexibility and convenience. It offers a default, proven design which you can freely customize to your personal needs (think: font size, US letter vs. A4, section order, page margins and much more) We welcome you to give it a spin yourself: you can try almost all functionality without even having to register an account. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on FlowCV & hope you have as much fun using it as we had building it. Please let us know what you think! 🤗

Hi guys, is it possible to create more than one cv? Cause I need them not only in English but even in my native language. Thank you, great product

Hi @andrea_gaffuri, thanks for trying FlowCV! We unfortunately do not support creating more than one resume (yet). We are evaluating it though because we get that feature request quite a lot :) Hint for getting two resumes in the meantime: you can create a different account under a separate eMail-Adress and change the displayed eMail on your resume so that they both show the same one 🤓 Thanks again & glad to have you on board!

@andrea_gaffuri @alxjpzmn I second this! I’d like to have at least 3 resumes, 1 for each language I speak. Then it’d be great to be able to duplicate one of those and make some small changes before downloading it, so that it’s better suited for whichever company i happen to be applying for a position at. Perhaps you can introduce that as a paid option? But please not another subscription! You could let users “unlock resume slots” like: 10€ for 1 extra resume slot, 18€ for 2 extra slots, 25€ for 3 extra slots etc. So I pay 10 € once and I “unlock” a second slot, meaning I can have 2 resumes simultaneously and tweak each one as many times as I want. If I delete the second resume, the 2nd slot will be free and I’ll be able to create another resume or duplicate the main one. How about that? ☺️ I’d 100% pay for it and I’m sure many many others would too!

@anna_0x, super cool idea - like it a lot! The reason we haven’t implemented multiple resumes is that we haven’t sufficiently thought about the UI/UX just yet. But clearly the demand is here, so we will work on it :)

I like the concept, it will be great for students who are just passing out. Can you import from Linkedin?

@jpmartin @alxjpzmn LinkedIn import for me would be a need-to-have. I'm done updating and syncing my resume copy manually, and my LinkedIn profile is my source of truth.

@alxjpzmn @mosymuis There is actually a feature in linkedin, to download the resume as a PDF version - and nicely formatted one too!

@alxjpzmn @jpmartin Yes exactly, so that's what I'm using now. Therefore, for me to adopt a new resume-building tool (that allows for more visual tweaking for example, or creative layouts) should at least be able to use my LinkedIn-copy.

Is flow CV open source ?

Hi @rajesh_kumar_nalla thank you for your question🙌 FlowCV is free to use for anybody and we will keep it free. The code itself is not open-source at the moment. However we are actually playing with the thought of open sourcing certain parts of FlowCV in the future in connection with another product we have in mind!
