Rework America Alliance Resume Builder
Create a compelling resume to highlight the skills you already have that match what employers need for the job you want, with this free resume builder from Rework America Alliance created in partnership with Lightcast. The Rework America Alliance’s new resume builder will help you customize a resume to a specific job, so you can demonstrate that you have what employers are looking for.
Whether you need to create a resume for yourself, or you work with job seekers or students and want to help them to create a strong resume, the Rework America Alliance’s resume builder and optimizer will be valuable additions to your job hunting toolkit. Let employers know the full set of skills acquired through previous jobs, volunteer work, traditional life, experiences, education, short-course and other experience. Show skills that have been learned that can be transferred to a new role or industry, in language employers understand.
The tool is a free resource from the Rework America Alliance that has been developed in collaboration with Lightcast and worker-facing organizations to share broadly with career coaches and guidance counsellors nationwide and help them better serve workers in their communities.
Through the Rework America Alliance we will also work with employers to help them better recognize the capabilities candidates present through the resume builder.
“The new resume tool provides an opportunity for a coach to work with learners or job seekers to understand their skill sets and spur a conversation about how to clearly articulate those skill sets. The resume builder can be a teaching tool for generating ideas on how-to identify and communicate skills, and supports the creation of a strong skills-based resume. This tool will help job seekers be accurate and effective as they tailor and build their resume for future employment opportunities.”
