Expert Answers to Common CV Builder Questions

Are you after a CV builder that is: a) proven to help score jobs at the world’s best companies, b) quick, easy, and affordable to use, and c) equipped with HR-approved CV templates and pre-written job description bullet points?

If you answered “Yes,” then you’ll understand why thousands of job seekers believe that Resume Build is the best CV builder on the market. 

Our online CV maker is designed to help job seekers just like you to create a professional CV in mere minutes. 

Considering that many other options—particularly free CV builders— are incredibly clunky and difficult to use, this is no easy feat. Worse still, many of our competitors’ offerings simply spit out generic CVs that aren’t formatted or written to be HR-friendly.

These are a few of the many reasons why so many people have turned to Resume Build to help them transform their job prospects.

Are you wondering “Can I really build my CV for free with Resume Build’s CV software?” or “Is this a free CV builder?” The answer is that it’s free to try. Once you sign up, you’ll also gain access to plenty of free CV templates, free CV job description bullet points, and free CV tips to help you create an unforgettable CV.

The truth of the matter is that there isn’t just one template to suit everyone. That’s why we provide a wide variety of professionally made CV templates to ensure that there’s something to suit each person’s unique situation, goals, and aesthetic preferences.

When browsing CV templates in our CV template library, it’s always helpful to keep in mind the message you want to send to hiring managers about yourself.

If you’re still stuck, here’s a quick guide that will help you make the right choice:

  • Do you want to appear creative and cutting-edge? Opt for the Cool or Awesome template. 
  • Do you want hiring managers to focus on your professionalism? The Professional or Contemporary template will do the trick. 
  • Do you want to play it safe with a more standard template? Try the Simple or Modern CV template.

There are a number of key pieces of information that you need to include in your CV. The following six CV sections cover the most pertinent information hiring managers are looking for:

  • Contact information: Your name, address, phone number, and email address.
  • A CV Summary or CV Objective: A section that succinctly conveys why you’re a standout candidate for the given position. 
  • Employment history: An overview of your most relevant professional experiences, with an emphasis on your key achievements. 
  • Education: Provide details about your degree or diploma.
  • Training and certifications: Note any training courses and certifications that are relevant to the job here.
  • Skills: List both hard (technical) skills and soft (interpersonal) skills you offer. 

But before you get writing, keep in mind that you will need to tailor your CV to the given role you are applying for. 

A simple rule of thumb is to stop thinking, “I can build my CV in a way that lets me apply to any position I want,” and start thinking, “I need to build my CV in a way that highlights how suitable I am for the specific position I’m after.”

This simple switch in thinking will help you to address the precise qualities a hiring manager is after. Remember, hiring managers look to your CV to see if you’re an ideal fit for the specific role they’re hiring for. So if your CV is too generic, they’ll simply think, “Next!”

That’s why it’s vital to analyze the advertisement of the role you want for keywords that indicate what the hiring manager is after. Once you identify these keywords, you should integrate any that are relevant to you throughout each of the sections we mentioned above.

The length of your CV will depend on how long you have been working for. Our experts recommend one page for every 10 years of work. 

So if you’re a high school or college student, wish to apply for an internship, or have 10 years or fewer of professional experience, a one page CV will be sufficient. However, if you have been working for 10 or more years, you may add a page for every decade you’ve been in the workforce.

The CV format you choose can influence the way a hiring manager perceives your job application. While there are a handful of different CV formats to choose from, the good news is that there’s one that will suit most professionals: the reverse-chronological CV format. 

This CV format emphasizes your professional experience, as this is the part of your CV hiring managers are generally most interested in. It formats your work history from most to least recent, so hiring managers can clearly see your career progression. Smart, right?

If you're an applicant who wishes to take the focus off of your limited work experience, it may be wise to opt for the combination CV format. Also referred to as the hybrid format, this CV format is a blend of the aforementioned reverse-chronological CV format and the functional format. The functional format aims to de-emphasize your lack of experience by instead putting your skills front and center.
