Resume Builder Walkthrough

Now that you understand what the resume builder is all about,
it’s time to start building your resume.

  1. step-ss-choose-template
    Choose a template.

    Style your resume your way when you choose from the 10+ resume templates available through our builder.

  2. Provide accurate work history.

    You’ll enter your work history next. Include the job title, employer, start date, and end date for each position you want included on your resume. Then, you’ll describe your responsibilities for each role; our builder will generate suggested bullet points to include based on the information you put here.

    Begin with your most recent, or your current, position and work backward. You will want to include three to five different job titles and about 10-15 years of experience. If you don’t have 10-15 years of experience or have less than three previous jobs, don’t worry.

    Remember that recruiters and hiring managers don’t spend much time looking at each resume before they make a decision. In your responsibility description, you should be clear, focus attention on the tasks you have completed successfully, and quantify your achievements whenever possible.

    Be sure to include power words for your descriptions.

  3. step-ss-your-summary
    Craft a clear, concise, and compelling summary.

    Here is where you will type up the summary to include at the top of your resume. The builder will provide you with suggestions based on your work history that you can adapt to fit your needs. If you need additional inspiration, we also provide resume summary examples on our blog.

    You can alternatively use this space to create a resume objective statement. However, the summary provides you additional space to sell yourself as the ideal candidate. Think of this section as your “elevator pitch”.

  4. Optimize your skills section based on relevant keywords.

    Including a skills section on your resume allows for recruiters and hiring managers to glean important information as they scan for relevant keywords.

    Use the job description to find keywords the employer will be looking for specifically. Our resume builder will help you choose additional relevant keywords to include based on your entries.

  5. step-ss-education-section
    Fill out your education section.

    Next, you will enter your education information. Begin with your highest degree. If you have not completed any undergraduate work, then include your high school degree.

    You will also be asked to indicate your highest level of education.

What is a resume builder?

A resume builder is an interactive online form that allows you to input your information and build out a clean, organized resume. Using select resume templates, a resume builder helps job seekers create professional resumes that showcase their talents while saving them time.

Zippia’s Resume Builder provides you with a simple, easy-to-use interface that helps you every step of the way as you build out a clean, professional resume.

What makes a good resume builder?

A good resume builder provides an easy-to-use interface that walks you through each of the most important resume sections. The online interface should lead you through a series of questions that will help you to build out your resume and provide suggestions along the way.

Zippia’s Resume Builder hits all the right notes. Together, we can create a professional resume that lands you the interview.

Are resume builders legal and legit?

Yes. There is nothing illegal about using a resume builder. They are simply tools to help you build a better, faster resume.

What is a resume template?

A resume template is a pre-structured and pre-designed resume that is ready to be filled in with the job seeker’s information. Using a template will take the guesswork out of the design, saving you time and providing you with a good outline of information to include.

Why do I need different resumes for every job application?

Applying to each position with a resume that is perfectly tailored for that role will help you stand out from other candidates. They don’t all need to be drastically different. Having a base resume that you update for each job application can be just as effective (and significantly less time consuming).

Keywords are important. And, no two jobs will have the exact same keywords. The job description will give you everything you need to know to complete your resume for that role. Adjust your job responsibilities and skills section accordingly.

With Zippia’s Resume Builder, it is easy to go back and update the information you need to. We can help you streamline the process, making it even faster.

How long does it take to make a resume?

With Zippia’s Resume Builder, you will be able to create your resume in as little as 15-20 minutes. By choosing a template and inputting your information into the interface, we take out all the guesswork and formatting that can drag the process out.

What do hiring managers look for on a resume?

Keywords. Hiring managers don’t spend a lot of time looking through each and every resume. They skim through, taking about six seconds to determine whether or not you are a good fit for the role.

Including the right keywords in your skills section and job description bullet points is important. Including a well-crafted summary can also go a long way.

If your resume warrants a deeper look, the hiring manager will pay attention to other important factors. Your relevant work experience and career progression as well as the impact you have had in each of your roles will also matter to them. Be sure to quantify any achievement you can.

While they are skimming, they will notice glaring errors. Don’t exaggerate. And, be sure to double, triple, quadruple check for spelling and grammatical errors.

What should I put on my resume?

Every resume should include the following:

  • Your contact information
  • Your work history—with well thought out (and quantified!) bullet points
  • Your education
Additionally, you can include a summary, a skills section, any certifications or awards you have earned, and/or additional languages you speak. Our Resume Builder allows you to add all of the relevant information via the interactive interface.

Outside of the obvious elements each resume should include, your resume should also have relevant keywords (pulled directly from the job description), plus power words and quantified achievements (we know we’ve said this a few times—hint: it’s important) in each of your bullet points.
