I had 15 minutes to create my resume
Last summer, I was busy enjoying my life and sitting in my office. I checked my LinkedIn and saw an email that led me to where I am right now.
The email was from a recruiter and he wanted me to apply for a position at his company. The company is a cool, global brand. They have one of those Google-like offices and tons of perks.
It was a great new opportunity for me. A dream job, really.
The problem was this. I hadn’t been searching for a job. I loved my company and the work was great. So, this meant that I had to put a resume together right away.
God, I hate Microsoft Word. It’s such a piece of crap. I hate formatting resumes with Word. And from being on the other side of the hiring table, I knew that your resume really needs to be visual and sharp.
That day, I did some searching and found Resumonk.
I love this resume tool.
You can build a resume really fast and I used it that day.
- It makes your resume look visual and the templates stand out
- It takes 15 minutes instead of 2 hours in Word
- Your resume looks WAY better than other candidates
So how did the story end?
I created my resume in about 15 minutes. I got the job. I moved to a different city. And I never spent a minute in Microsoft Word.
