Zety site welcomes the user with a page full of clutter, confusion, and misleading clicks. For example, click on “project manager resume samples” on the landing page and you’re taken to a page full of general advice, not samples. On that page you’ll see a link to “project manager resume sample and writing guide”; click there and you’ll be taken to a series of design templates (and more advice)… not resume samples.
We like advice! But this site seems to specialize in offering resume tips we didn’t ask for, not meaningful software tools and practical support. Tips, guidelines, and general recommendations are great, but some job seekers don’t want a lecture—they want a polished resume.
Zety has an easily visible “create my resume now” button right on the homepage. This leads you directly to the template options. Once you choose your template, you can choose from different color schemes to match your style and industry. Zety also lets you choose which language you want your resume to be in and they offer 23 different language options! The next step will showcase category sections for you to add and the generator will organize the sections for you. There is also a cover letter builder allowing you to create a letter using the same template as your resume. Zety does offer specific features to premium members only, like the resume tracker that allows you to find out if your resume is getting noticed by employers. The text editor is very flexible and can be used at any time.
