Some Old School Resume Makers With A New Addition

You have discarded the old ways of building a resume. But what’s next? Everything is online which means you have plenty of options to choose from. But why still make resumes?

Do you know "resumes are dead?"

But by any chance, if you are looking to use resumes, here is something for you. I decided to go through the process of building my resume instead of presenting you with 100+ options to choose from - I added some fake details and skipped a few steps.

Here are a few resume makers I consider good enough to go through. But hang on, that's not it. What if you get one tool that solves your multiple problems? Keep reading to find out what I am talking about.


You enter your details one time and can select any template from the various given. Some features are -

  • You can add a section.
  • It’s modern and colorful: they have minimalist templates too.
  • You can edit the formatting, but even the default one is clean.
  • This is also a good cover letter builder.
  • You can download your resume with a click.
