If you do not have a resume on your computer, you can create one using our free online builder. These resumes have a simple and clean design, are fast to build and easy to edit. We have several articles on how to use our online builder, and how to write a great resume.

Even if you are not ready to apply for a job, we still recommend that you upload a resume.
