Tips and Tools for Recent Graduates: How to Write the Perfect Resumes

If you just graduated from college or university, then you must be puzzled by the task of resume writing. You need to send several job applications, but you cannot expect to get a call for an interview if you fail to present yourself as a decent candidate.
How do you catch the attention of a potential employer? There is only one answer to this question: you need a clean and simple, but detailed resume. Check out these tools that will enable you to create this type of document.

1. ConnectCV

ConnectCV is a free online resume builder that supports multiple features and sharing options. The customizable resume template includes inline writing tips, inbuilt spell-checker, and industry-specific samples that can serve as your inspiration. Once you create the resume, you can share it online, email a discreet link, or download it as a PDF or Word document.

2. NinjaEssays

Automated tools can certainly help you create a resume, but you cannot expect a unique result from them. They work according to specific patterns that won’t distinguish you much from the competition. If you want a really personalized document, this service can help. NinjaEssays is a professional custom writing and editing company that enables you to collaborate with experts in the niche of your choice.
Your writer will understand the industry you are trying to become part of. He will know what employers want to see, so he’ll help you tailor a resume that will attract their attention.

3. ResumUp

ResumUp is more than a tool that helps you create a job application document; it also enables you to plan your career with a visual roadmap. The app generates a step-by-step map with a list of skills you’ll need to obtain in order to make progress on the ladder. The tool also reveals the jobs you’ll need to go through before you eventually get to the position of your dreams.
As a recent graduate, you might not have all career objectives figured out. ResumUp will help you identify your needs, visualize the goals, and find a way to reach them.

4. Kinzaa

Kinzaa is all about enabling you to create a data-driven resume. What does that mean? Your document will be light on text, but heavy on design (it’s basically an infographic that shows your skills and potential). Since your first step towards getting a job is getting noticed, the graphical resume you create with this tool might be exactly what you need.
You can add the needed information manually, but you can also use the data from your LinkedIn profile to get a Kinzaa infographic resume. Then, you will get a unique link to the online resume, which you can share with potential employers.

5. My Perfect Resume

If you don’t have much time for resume creation and you want to use a really simple and fast tool, this is the one. My Perfect Resume enables you to choose a design and insert pre-written examples. Then, you can download and print the document. The professional resume templates and designs are quite decent, so you’ll probably find something that meets your standards.
Needless to say, you shouldn’t expect a unique resume when you use this tool.


This tool enables you to set up a personal website within minutes. You can feature photos, videos, social content, and much more. Flavors brings all social media platforms into a single website with your own URL. In addition, you will get free business cards.
What makes Flavors relevant in this list? You can create a website that will serve as your resume. All you need to do is feature your personal information and add content associated to your niche. Then, you can share the elegant site with potential employers.

Don’t let the job market intimidate you. The journey towards your career goals starts with the creation of a perfect resume. Thanks to the 6 tools listed above, you can cover that step and grab the best opportunity for progress.
