Resume writing can be so hard especially when your resume is a mess, or you don't have one yet. It might feel like you need a savior to come and rescue your resume.
If you want to update your resume now then this is where you're supposed to be. I'm sharing my favorite way to create a resume online for free, how to make your resume standout, and offer you a resume writing service if you just want it off your plate.
You won't have to live with a blah resume any longer, so let's get started and give your resume a makeover!
This post is all about my resume writing website.
RESUME WRITING WEBSITE
Think about how many people are applying to jobs right now — that's a lot of resumes (resumes that looks the exact same to hiring teams).
Trust me, you don't want to get lost in the shuffle. And when you're looking for a new gig, every day that passes without a follow-up for an interview can feel excruciatingly long.
So what if you could skip the wait and guarantee eyes on your resume?
Yes, I know it sounds too good to be true but truthfully, it's a lot easier than you think.
What is resume writing?
Whether you want to do it yourself or pay someone else to do it, resume writing is a skill and like with all skills, you can practice and get better.
Start looking up resume writing tips online or on Pinterest and you'll find endless lists and ideas. You want to give your resume personality while still giving off professional vibes, this is your opportunity to wow recruiters.
Show them your style by adding color, a photo, play with fonts, THE WORKS!
You don't need to be bound by the constraints of a Word doc resume — the horror. So where to start?
Free Resume Templates
When you're taking your resume from blah to beautiful, the number one website I recommend (and will always recommend) is Canva.
They have endless resume templates that make it insanely easy to start formatting your resume, and the best part?
It's FREE! Yup, free.
It doesn't really get much easier than that. You select the resume template you want and then start adding your information.
There is also a paid version which I simply love, but you don't really need when you're starting out and you're just updating or creating your resume.
So stop making excuses and get to building!
Resume Writing Services
If you're strapped for time or not interested *at all* in updating your resume yourself, you can always hire out someone to do it for you.
A word of caution — there are some people offering resume writing services out there for astronomical prices AND the resumes they create aren't even that cute.
So be picky and make sure that you're working with the right professional, most of us genuinely want to do a good job for a fair price.

Creative Resume vs Traditional Resume
It's much easier now to pull design elements into your resume without a big hassle so a hot topic is whether or not you should stick with the tried-and-true traditional resume format or if you should branch out and get creative.
The best advice when it comes to resume writing is always keep the job/role in mind.
You want to write your resume specifically for the positions you're interested in (and no, that doesn't mean you need a new resume for each job application).
Make sure that your resume is tailored to fit that role. For example, if you're interested in the marketing field then you'd want to demonstrate your knowledge of effective copy and branding in your resume.
You could do this by highlighting any and all marketing experience you've gained in previous roles (even if they weren't specifically marketing roles) and having all your fonts and colors match the vibe you're trying to give off.
If you're applying for a more technical role, make sure that your skills section is tailored to that position and keep your copy straightforward.
(in case you're not following "copy", that's the text on the page)
Essentially, it all comes down to making your resume the exact right fit for the role you're applying to.
Yes we've all worked odd jobs here and there, and no our resumes aren't naturally pointing in one direction.
But think of it as curating your experience and knowledge, the same way you would in an interview. Make everything relevant and your resume should package it all together with a bow.
So long as you have an aesthetically pleasing resume that demonstrates how you will fill that company's exact need, you're golden.
hope that was helpful and happy resume writing!
