Tips to build the perfect resume

Building a professional resume can be a challenge. Follow these tips to guide you through the resume creation process:

Ensure your contact information is correct and professional:

If you want the job, make sure they can get ahold of you. You also want to include a professional email address. Say goodbye to pugs4life@pugmail.com and hello to firstname.lastname@email.com.

Use action words to describe responsibilities:

Highlight your experience by showing, not telling.

Organize your work history:

Sometimes reverse chronological is the best way to organize, but other times you may want to highlight certain work experience first if it's more relevant. Think about this when applying to each individual job.

Keep your resume focused:

Don't include irrelevant or outdated experience.

Write a stellar summary or objective statement:

Oftentimes this can make a strong first impression. Be sure to write a statement that will leave the recruiter interested to read more.

Frequently asked questions about our resume builder

A resume is simply a brief overview of your professional work history. Most importantly, include your name and contact information so potential employers know who to contact to set up an interview.

Next, you'll want to include all relevant work information, education and any skills that will help demonstrate your qualifications for the role to which you are applying.

Check out our tips above for how to better highlight these sections.
That depends! If you're applying to different types of jobs, then you'll want different resumes that highlight the skills required in the individual job descriptions.

It’s always a good idea to make small changes to your resume to keep it as relevant as possible to the job.
That's up to you! If you're applying for a professional role, find a sleek template that you like.

If you're applying for a creative role, you can find something with a little more creativity to it.

At the end of the day, as long as your resume highlights your qualifications, you can't go wrong with any of our professional templates.
Free does mean free at ResumePerfector! We will never sell your information. In fact, you can delete your account and all your information at any time.

We hope you don't, though, because you'll have an easier time keeping your resume up to date with an active profile.

You never know when your dream job will come knocking and you'll need to have your resume ready at the drop of a hat!
In a perfect world, recruiters and HR professionals would thoroughly read each and every resume that comes across their desk. But like the rest of us, recruiters and HR professionals don't have the time to sift through hundreds of resumes.

Many use an applicant tracking system (ATS) to help them sort resumes. They will upload resumes to an ATS, which then runs the resume through an algorithm. Based on factors such as keywords, formatting, dates and other key points on a resume, the ATS will score or rank applicants so hiring managers can look at only the best matches.

Our resumes are ATS-friendly so you won't get skipped over because of an algorithm.
