Creating a Resume

Posting your resume on America's JobLink (AJL) is essential for attracting potential employers and applying for job openings. There are two methods for posting your resume on AJL. You can build a resume from scratch using the AJL online resume builder, or you can upload a resume you have already created in Microsoft Word, Microsoft WordPad, LibreOffice Writer, or any program that allows you to save files as .doc or .docx. You can post as many resumes as you like, and save (download) and print your resumes. AJL also gives you control over which information to display to potential employers on your resume, such as your references or address of residence.

Add New Resume

If your state requires you to create a resume as part of AJL registration, you will be led directly from account creation to the New Resume page. If your state does not require you to build a resume during account creation, or if you want to create additional resumes, in your main menu, click My Resumes. You can build a resume from scratch or upload an existing resume.

The online resume builder is split into the following 11 steps. If you are uploading your own resume, you must only complete Step 1: Resume Overview.
