The latest updates were modeled on our Stockholm template (the professional crowd favorite) and implemented a host of useful features for .docx (Word) files:

  • Introduced color-coded progress bars for the skills section. Show your skill mastery through visual elements! The feature can be found in the sidebar under languages/skills.
  • User avatar image support has been added. Optional but stylish personalization.
  • Icons now highlight the main resume sections (profile, education etc.). This makes Word file resumes easier to read at a glance. Not to mention - more pleasing to the eye.
  • Multi-color design support added! More visual freedom, more creativity, more style choices (affects links and skill levels).
  • Improved formatting and spacing across the board, similar to our PDF resumes.

Stay tuned for more updates as we make our resume builder better and better!

Line spacing feature!

This X-mas we released our newest hugely helpful feature to the builder: Line Spacing.

What is Line Spacing and why did we do it?

After receiving a lot of feedback and tips from customers, we understood the desire to more easily control the length of your resume. Sometimes people do not want their resume to exceed one page, while others prefer two pages. We got to work and now we proudly offer this new line spacing option so you can easily adjust the line spacing from -50% to +50% with increments of 25%.
