As we've explained in our article How to Create an Effective Resume, it's important to have several versions of the resume that, both in terms of content and design, are adapted to different business sectors and personnel selection processes.
If you're subscribed to our Monthly Plan or to our Annual Plan, you will be able to create as many resumes as you need. If you want to create a copy of an existing resume to create a new resume template, follow these steps:
1. Log in on the platform and go to My Resumes.
2. Find the resume you want to create a copy of and, in the navigation bar that appears to its right, click on "Duplicate".
This will create a copy of the original resume to which you can make changes to the content or design.
It is possible to change the order in which all the sections of your resume appear with the exception of "General Information" and "Professional Profile". As these are the two blocks that personnel managers will want to see first, they always have a non-movable position in our templates.
To change the order of the rest of the sections, you can use the double arrow button that appears to the left of their names. Hold down that button to drag the section whose order you want to change up or down. The change will automatically show up in your resume preview and will be saved. You can modify the position of a section within your resume as many times as you need.
If you have several entries within a section of your resume, you can also change their order. For example, if within "Experience" you have added several jobs, you can change the order in which they are displayed using the double arrow icon that appears to the left of each one, the same way as you do with the main sections.
Yes. Within a maximum period of 15 days from the activation of your subscription and as long as you have not downloaded or shared any of your resumes, you can request a refund of your money if you are not satisfied with the service.
To do so, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Attach to your email a bank receipt of the payment for your subscription and indicate the last four digits of the card with which you made the payment and its expiration date.
Never. Your resumes and all the information they contain is visible only to you and to the people you share them with. We will not provide your resumes or the information you include in them to third parties or entities.
Our support team will have access to your resumes with the sole purpose of helping you in the event that a technical incident arises or you have a problem when editing, downloading or sharing your resume.
You can change your resume template as many times as you need. By changing the template, the content of your resume will remain the same as how you've published it and we will simply adapt its appearance to the design of the resume template you have chosen.
To change the template used for your resume, follow these steps:
1. Log in on the platform and go to My Resumes.
2. Find the resume whose template you want to change and in the navigation panel that appears to its right, click on "Edit".
3. When you have accessed the editing tool, under the preview on the right you will see the "Change Template" button. Click on it.
4. A panel with all of our resume templates will be displayed. When you have chosen the one you want to use, click on it and the design of your resume will change.
In this article we explain how to create a resume through our platform and what types of content you can include in each section. Remember that our resume templates have a flexible structure that adapts to your needs and the job position you are going to apply for.
There are blocks of content that are important for you to fill in for any selection process, such as General Information, Professional Profile, Education and Work Experience, while others are optional that you can use in those cases in which you need it. References, Internships, Hobbies, etc.
Our tool will also allow you to reorder the sections of your resume so that you can highlight the ones you need to make stand out. If, for example, you are applying for a position as a lorry driver, you may be interested in having the Driver's Licenses field appear towards the top of your resume. If you need to reorder the sections, we will tell you how to do it here.
1. Choose a resume template
The first step in creating a resume is to choose the template. We offer you 20 professional designs to choose from. Find the one that best suits you and the job you are applying for. Don't be afraid to take this first step: when you start working on your resume, you can change the layout as many times as you want.
2. Log in
We want you to feel comfortable when filling out your resume and have you be able to save it in order to add or edit content when you need to, be able to create several versions... To do so, we need you to log in to our platform. You can log in using your Facebook, Google or LinkedIn profile, or with your email.
3. Add general information
Regardless of the resume template you choose, this information will appear in a place that stands out in the document. The Employment field will serve as the first headline explaining what you do to recruiters. In a few words, summarise which job position you are applying for: architect, industrial designer, carpenter, etc.
In General Information, you must also include your contact details and your personal details. Depending on the selection process you are participating in, some information may be necessary and some may not, so you can choose which fields to fill in and which to leave empty.
You can also include your photograph in this block. In our article on how to write an effective resume, we propose several guidelines to follow. Please note that some of our resume templates do not include a space for a photo in their design.
4. Add your professional profile
The professional profile should be used as bait. Sum up your professional career in a few sentences. This text should be geared towards the job you are applying for. Give recruiters a clear idea about your experience, skills and what you can bring to the position. In this field, it's a good idea to include keywords related to the sector you are applying for.
5. Add your experience
List the jobs you have done in chronological order, starting with the most recent. If you have very extensive work experience, the best thing to do is to include only the jobs you've held in the last fifteen years. It is unlikely that the oldest information will be taken into account by those responsible for the selection process and, in addition, it will diminish the relevance of your most recent work experience.
For each point of your work experience, you can include a description. You can use this field to provide extra information on the highlights of your professional experience and on aspects related to the job you are applying for.
6. Add your education
Keep in mind that the information about your education should not be too long because that will dilute the importance of your most recent qualifications, in addition to making your resume less operational for recruiters. That's why the best thing to do is to include the most advanced degrees you hold. If, for example, you have a university degree, it's not necessary to include your secondary school studies.
When you have decided which degrees to add, sort them chronologically, starting with the most recent.
7. List the courses you've taken
If, as a complement to your education, you have participated in courses or conferences that add value to the position you are applying for, you can include them in this section. Start with the most recent and don't forget to indicate which centre or institution taught the course.
8. Add a few references
Sometimes, especially in the later stages of the selection process, recruiters will need references from your former employers to corroborate the information you have included in your resume or ask them for an assessment of your performance. You can include one or more references in your resume. In this way, in addition to making the process easier for the human resources managers, you will help them to trust you and the information in your resume.
9. Include internships
If you have just finished your studies and are applying for your first paid job or if your work experience is still brief, it may be useful to include information in your resume about the internships that you have carried out as a complement to your education.
10. Add other activities
Here you should include other activities related to your professional experience in which you have participated: workshops, professional meetings, conferences, etc.
11. List the languages you speak
Knowing other languages can be essential for some jobs. And for others, although it's not a primary requirement, it can be that little something extra that allows you to stand out from the rest of the candidates. For this reason, it is very important that you indicate which languages you speak and what your level is in each of them.
12. Add your skills
If you have professional or personal skills that can contribute to the job you are applying for, include them in this section. The information you provide in this block should be related to the job you are going to have or the sector in which you are going to be working.
13. Add some links
If you have a profile on LinkedIn or other social networks on which you address professional issues, for example a profile in Instagram where you post images of your work, it's a good idea to include them in your resume. Do the same if you have a website or a blog where you discuss issues related to your professional performance. This will allow personnel managers to have extra information about you and your professional network, in addition to a sample of the type of work you do.
14. Talk about your hobbies
Including your hobbies may be interesting for some jobs. It will provide extra information about you and help you connect with the human resources managers. It will be especially interesting if you provide information about hobbies that, although they are not within your personal scope, are linked in some way to the job you are going to apply for.
15. Add your driver's license
Having a driver's license is essential for some jobs and very positive for others, since it gives you the ability to move around in your day-to-day work. Include whether you have a driver's license on your resume. If you have several, add them all.
16. Edit your resume
A key part of the resume-making process is having to edit it. Spelling errors can generate a very negative feeling in those responsible for the selection process and can reduce your chances of getting the position you are applying for. That's why it's important to carefully review the content of your resume. If possible, have someone else review it as well. Everyone knows that four eyes always see more than two.
In this process, also check the amount of content that you have included in each section of your resume. Remember that recruiters will assess your resume in just a few seconds to decide whether you will move on to the next phase of the selection process. Analyse whether you have included unnecessary information or excessively long explanations. If so, try reducing the content somewhat to make your resume more concrete and operational.
17. Download or share your resume
Once you have finished editing your resume, you can activate one of our plans to download it or share it by email. We offer you three different plans. Any of them will allow you to download your resume in PDF format or share it by email.
Weekly Plan for €0.50
You can only purchase it once. If at the end of your weekly plan you want to continue using the service, you can switch to the monthly plan or the annual plan.
Monthly Plan for €28.37
This plan will allow you to create as many resumes as you need and download them in PDF format or share them by email in an unlimited way. You can cancel your monthly plan at any time.
Our resume creation tool offers you the option to change the language in which the names of the sections of your resume are displayed. This change will only affect the names of these sections and will not translate or modify any of the information that you have included in them.
For example, if you decide to change the language of your resume to Spanish, the "Experience" section will be renamed "Experiencia", but the content you have included in that section will not be modified.
To change the language of your resume:
1. Go to My Resumes.
2. Find the resume whose language you want to change and, in the navigation bar that appears to its right, click on "Edit".
3. At the top of the interface you will see the language selection field. Click on it.
4. In the list of languages that will be displayed, choose the language you want to use in your resume.
Any changes you make to your resume will be automatically saved, regardless of whether you make changes to the content, the order of the blocks of content or the resume template used. You don't need to worry about saving your progress: as long you have an internet connection, these changes will be stored on our servers.
When you've finished editing your resume, you can download it or share it by email very easily if you have subscribed to any of our plans. There are two ways of doing so.
The first is from the My Resumes section. To the right of the resumes you have created, you'll find a navigation bar that includes a "Download" button and a "Share" button.
The second way is from the resume editing tool. When you are editing any of your resumes, you'll see off to the right, below the preview, a "Download" button and a "Share" button.
If you download your resume, you'll get a copy in PDF format that you can save on your hard drive, share via social media, send through WhatsApp, etc. If you have several versions of your resume, you'll be able to download all of them.
If you prefer to share your resume by email, we will send an email to the address you provide. This email will contain a link to your resume and, optionally, you can also add a text for the recipient. Keep in mind that if from the My Resumes panel you decide to delete a resume that you have previously shared, the link with which the document was shared will also stop working.
