How to use the Resume Builder

Step 1 Pick a template

After you create a Standard or Plus account on Job Bank, just login to access the Resume Builder. To build your first resume, pick from one of the two templates currently available. You should choose the resume template that best reflects your current situation.

Use the traditional template if:

  • you have several years of experience in your field;
  • you’re looking for a job in your field;
  • your career progression has been stable and your work history is fairly consistent (no major gaps).

Use the youth and recent graduates’ template if:

  • you’re a first-time job seeker starting your professional career;
  • you’ve just completed your education and you’re looking for an entry-level job in your field of study;
  • you have limited paid work experience.

Step 2 Fill in the blanks

Once you’ve picked a resume template, fill in the blanks with details about your education, experience and skills.

In some sections of your resume, you can search thousands of pre-defined options and select the ones that suit you. For example, you can import job duties for any job title. When you look up a job title, you can select all or any of the associated job duties and add them to your resume in one click.

If you have a Plus account on Job Bank, you can simply import all of your profile details into the Resume Builder to automatically fill the blanks.

Step 3 Customize your resume

Make sure to put a personal spin on your resume: with the ability to add free text descriptions and create new sections, you can easily customize its content to suit your needs.
