You have three options to create your resume.

1.You can upload your resume as a file (.doc .pdf etc.)

2.   You can use our online resume creator and fill in the different fields like   spoken languages, previous employers and so forth.

3.   Or you can use a rich text editor, which allows your resume to be entered or pasted as text.

When using our resume creator you will be asked to fill the information for your work history, education, and so on into the multiple fields.  It may take some time to do this, but we recommend doing so because this will better your chances of employers finding your resume, due to the different fields you are required fill.

When using the rich text editor you can write and format your text of your resume or directly paste it in as a rich text.  Employers will be able to search by keywords in your resume. Using this option is faster, but it gives a worse chance that your resume will be found when employers conduct their searches.
