If your design skills are non-existent or you don’t have the time to tinker with every single detail, Zety is a good option for you. It will guide you through the whole process of creating a new resume or you’ll be able to upload an old resume and update it with ease.
The process seems pretty smooth and doesn’t take too much time. The Zety resume builder offers pre-written content to help you fill out each section of your resume. That’s great if writing a resume makes you queasy and feels overwhelming. If you have a clear idea in mind, the navigation will slow you down a bit as more advanced features are left for the last steps
While Zety doesn’t offer any resume writing services, the suggested content helps a great deal, especially if you’re in a more popular job (i.e. accountant, administrative assistant). If you have more of a niche job, you’ll need to mix and match skills from more general jobs.
Overall, Zety a good tool for those who want to write a resume fast or find the process of writing a resume a bit overwhelming. Some users might feel like 20 templates are not enough, but all of them seem just right for most job seekers. Matching templates for cover letters are available as well.
Finally, Zety also offers a cover letter builder. Using it will let you write a solid cover letter with very little typing. It feels awkward at first, but does speed up the process significantly.
