After you have finished filling out all of the fields, simply create your resume. The program will come up with formatting and style for you. Then it will save your resume as a .DOC file that you can use to easily send or print off to give to a prospective employer. Now, you don’t have to hire someone to write your resume for you. Simply put in the same information that you would typically give to a writer, and the program will style things for you.
