It takes a lot to get noticed in a competitive job market, but Purzue has found a way to help job seekers who use its platform stand apart from the pack. The web-based application helps people create stylish digital resumes that employers are likely to notice.

Purzue is simplifying and modernizing the resume-creation process by offering straightforward tools that people can use to design engaging resumes that are easy to share both online and offline. Start the process of creating a new resume by following Purzue’s step-by step guide, making sure to include pertinent information like your educational background, contact details, and career goals. To expedite this process, you also have the option to import past employer data straight from Facebook or Linkedin.
