When I originally wrote The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers, there were quite a few free resume-writing sites out there that had a lot of scaffolding to help people write resumes, but only one gave you the option to print it out so it looked nice on paper.

Apparently, over the past year most of these sites figured out that in order to get a job, most people were going to need a hard copy of their resume and not just a virtual one online.  So, happily, there’s more of a choice out there, and all of them seem pretty equally accessible to English Language Learners.

Here are my picks for The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes (not in any order of preference):

Actually, my favorite is now Read Write Think’s Resume Generator

Resume Companion looks like a very easy, and scaffolded, tool to create a resume.

Resunate is an easy online tool to create a resume.

Resumonk lets you easily create resumes. It’s one of the easiest tools out there that I’ve seen — students can quickly make a PDF.

HipCV is a new resume-builder site that, importantly, lets you download your resume as a PDF. It provides a pretty straightforward guide to adding information to a resume, which is important for students.

Though I’m not sure the world needs yet one more online resume-builder, Resume-Now is a new decent site that provides a lot of step-by-step guidance and lets you download the finished product.

Resume Genius

Standard Resume lets users easily create…resumes.

Cake Resume is a decent site where students can create their resume.

SwiftCV is a new online resume tool.

I’d still encourage readers to check-out The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers because it has several other excellent resources related to job-hunting and exploring careers.

@realisticrecruiting What is your greatest weakness is not a trap on a job interview. People are not perfect, having self-awareness is an important trait. #careeradvice #jobsearchtips #jobinterviewtips #interviewtipsandtricks #jobinterviewquestions ♬ original sound – Mike Peditto | Job Search Talk

First Rounds is a practice interview site.

Resume Tool appears to be an old-fashioned non-AI-driven…tool for creating your resume.
