Similarly, creating a resume might seem like a long laborious process, but if you’ve tried ResumeBaking, you might find that you can create a professional resume in minutes without too much of a fuss.
Creating a winning resume is vital to ensuring a good first impression when you’re facing a potential employer. And if you’ve used Microsoft Word 2010 to create resumes, I’ll bet you’ve had to spend too much time fine-tuning the margins, formatting, bullets and more to achieve the right result. ResumeBaking is a free resume builder that takes care of such troublesome issues and helps you focus your attention on what matters most; the key skills to market yourself effectively to potential employers. So let’s take an inside look at how ResumeBaking makes creating a professional resume as easy as baking an apple pie.

You can also sign in using your Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn Profiles. You will then be taken to the free resume builder section, where you can fill up various sections.
Adding Contact & Other Information
The next step in building your resume is adding your personal details such your name and address, along with your photo. Then enter your objective, work experience details, job related skills, and additional information such as academic awards, scholarships received, research projects you worked at and other relevant information. You can also list your interests or hobbies that reflect your valuable characteristics and positive qualities. The last step involves adding your references by uploading files not exceeding 1MB in DOC, DOCX, TXT, PDF, RTF, OD formats.
Adding Custom Sections
If your skills or experiences don’t fit into the pre-built sections of the resume builder, you can customize the builder by adding your own custom sections.

If you decide against adding the section, you can delete it. When you delete a custom section it moves back to the right column, and you can add it back later any time you want.
Once you create the resume, you can opt to receive job notifications and have your resume uploaded to a unique URL.
