CV Engineer best resume apps for android

Job searches are already fairly stressful. You should be able to build a resume without adding to that stress. Resumes are important because they give you a single document that you can send to multiple employers. It has your contact information, job history, references, and all kinds of valuable information for employers. It’s way easier to hand out a well-made resume than it is to fill out dozens of applications. Additionally, many jobs require both an application and a resume anyway, and it’s always good to be prepared. Here are the best resume builder apps for Android. Of course, many of these are useful for CVs for you academics out there.

You simply fill out each field until the whole thing is finished, so it’s easy enough for just about anyone to use.

Everybody knows about LinkedIn. The service is a mix of social media and a job-searching website. It’s also a source of information for various types of professionals. Your profile is basically your resume. You put your background, job experience, and education experience there. People can then connect with you, or you can apply for jobs right there on the site. It has its ups and downs, both in popularity and functionality. However, it’s easily the largest website on the Internet that does what this app does. LinkedIn also has an excellent professional learning app called Linked Learning if you want to brush up on some job skills.

Microsoft Word

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($1.00 – $99.99 per item)

Microsoft Word is the original resume builder app. People still use this app to build a resume. The app has templates, and it leverages its word processing capabilities to generate some really neat-looking stuff. You can export in a variety of formats, including Word’s native format or PDF if you choose. The mobile version doesn’t have a ton of available templates, but it has a good basic option. You’ll likely have more luck on the web version or the desktop version if you have access to those.

Job Search apps

Price: Free

Many job search apps have resume builders as part of the app itself. One such example is Indeed Job Search. Most job search apps don’t advertise a resume builder, but about half of them actually have one. This is a good option for finding a job because you can create your resume and immediately turn around and find potential employers to send it to. Of course, this locks you into that job search app’s ecosystem, but as long as you find a job, it doesn’t matter that much, right? We have Indeed linked up at the button below, but there are dozens of them on Google Play.
