I am super excited about writing this newsletter. Because I get to write about my fav online resume builder. I am a self-appointed brand ambassador of Enhancv (yeah, I am not getting paid). Since I discovered the site, I am a fan.
The look and presentation of a resume have evolved over time. what does a modern resume look like? It’s pictorial, concise, and eye-catchy. Now, a lot of people make graphic resumes using complicated software like photoshop. With Enhancv you can easily make an amazing resume. The process is easy, simple and it even tells you how to write your resume. Isn’t that awesome!
So, without further ado let’s take a look at how to build a resume on Enhancv.
5 Steps to make a resume on Enhancv
Step 1: Go to enhancv.com
Step 2: Click on the button to begin creating your resume.
You don’t need to make an account or sign in to build a resume but you will need to sign in if you want to download it. So, I suggest you sign in using your Google account at the beginning.
Step 3: Fill your Name and Job Title
You will be asked to fill in your name and job title to begin. Select a job title that describes you the best cause it will be highlighted on top of the resume. For instance, you can be a writer and a social media manager but it’s better to select a title that suits the job you are applying for.
Step 3: Pick a Template
In the free plan, you will get a couple of options to choose from. The paid plan offers more templates. Pick a template that suits your requirements.
Step 4: Fill in the information
Once you have picked the template, all you need to do is fill in the information. Write your contact details. Add your photo. Write about your work experience. The layout is such that you have a place to write everything about yourself but concisely. You can even rename the heading, play around with the design to an extent to suit your liking.
Step 5: Save & Download
For downloading the file you will need to log in. Making an account on Enhancv helps you save a copy of your resume online as well. Also, remember to download the file in pdf format.
Now, tell me - wasn’t that easy! Ehancv is quite cost-effective when it comes to paid plans. They have three options to choose from. The 14 dollar plan is a good bargain because you can then access a wider range of designs and make custom CVs for every job that you apply for.

Why do recruiters view and download my resume but I don't get a call from any of them? - Suchitra
This is a great question. Let me explain to you when your resume is marked as viewed/downloaded.
If you applied to a job, and recruiters looked at your resume to decide if they want to shortlist you or not, then your resume will be marked as viewed/ downloaded. But this does not mean that your resume has been shortlisted - it just means that your resume has been seen. This is more indicative of the fact that you applied for a serious job (because they saw your resume) than anything else.
