I have always feared writing resumes because the format, look and feel were always so frustrating. This website allowed me to create a beautiful resume and cover letter, tailored to the job. I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in a professional resume to try this out.

FAQ About Our Builder

What are the best resume builder sites?

We wanted to help you with the best resume builder experience. As soon as we launched our resume builder, we decided to revisit all of our past competitors. As of June 2020, most of those sites no longer existed or had removed their online builders.

So, we buckled down and started researching. As you can see in the comparison tool above, we tracked down the most popular builders, tested each one against our nine criteria, compared them against our own resume tool, and walked away determined that our builder featured more add-on features than any of our competitors.

Where can I find a free resume builder?

Several of the resume builders we compared ourselves to run on a subscription model, including ourselves. However, we know that juggling a job search, a budget and subscribing to a tool when you’re unsure of the value can be a delicate act. Although we can’t offer a truly free resume builder, we did unlock one of our downloadable formats and made it free for you.

If you’re working on a desktop, click on the download menu near the top right-hand of the page and select the “Plain text (.txt)” option in the dropdown menu. You see a simpler version of your resume that you can design in your own style or use in partnership with one of our many free resume templates.

Can I also make a cover letter?

Yes, you can absolutely make yourself a cover letter to match your new resume. Our Resume Builder comes with a built-in cover letter generator that features matching templates that you can customize, and suggested letter content that meets your unique career history like skills, gaps in your resume, and which work environments best suit your personality.

Do I need to install anything on my computer?

Our Resume Builder runs entirely online. You can easily access your Hloom account, your resumes and your cover letters from any device or network without the need to install any software to your computer.

We do give you the option to download finalized documents to your computer or to email yourself this document, but we'll never ask you to download our entire resume building tool to your computer in order to enjoy it's full capabilities.
