Best Programs For Creating Resumes (2023)

The best way to create a resume is by using programs that have been specifically designed for that purpose. There are many different types of software available, though they all have one thing in common: they make it easy to create professional resumes that look good.

What are resume software programs?

Resume software programs are used to create a professional-looking resume and cover letter in minutes. The program will ask you for personal information like your name, contact information, education and work experience and then guide you through the process of creating a cover letter or resume. You can also add photos or graphics to your document as well as change fonts and colors easily.

Benefits of using resume software programs:

  • Save time by entering in all the necessary information once rather than typing it out over and over again
  • Easily enter keywords that match what an employer is looking for in an applicant (such as “team player”) so that they can find your file easily on the internet, even if they have no idea who you are yet!

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is a word processor developed by Microsoft. It is one of the most widely used programs for creating resumes. ATS (applicant tracking system) and most other resume parsing software use this format to parse resumes. We would recommend this over any other because it is simple to understand, easy to make changes in, and most likely the one ATS will use as well.

Google Docs

Google Docs is a free word processor that allows you to create a resume in the same place as your other documents. It also has an online backup service for all your files, so if something happens to your computer or its hard drive, Google Docs will save the day by restoring everything from within a few clicks away.

Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is a desktop publishing software application used to create layouts and designs. It is used by professional graphic designers, printers and publishers to create brochures, magazines and books.

In this section we will look at the job functions that can be performed using Adobe InDesign:

  • Create and edit text documents in a variety of formats such as HTML or Microsoft Word DOCX files.
  • Modify color palettes for printing projects or digital display purposes (iPad apps). You can apply colors to objects on the page so that they have a specific meaning when printed out or published online at your company website. For example, if you’re creating an ebook about cooking with fresh ingredients from your garden then perhaps all green items would be labeled “ingredients” while everything else would be red “tools needed” etcetera…


OpenOffice is a free and open-source office suite, a project of The Apache Software Foundation. It is available in many languages.

OpenOffice is used for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics creation and more. It has a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows users to access the functions of the software without using complex code language.


Canva is a free online design tool that lets you create professional designs for your social media posts, blog posts, and more. It’s easy to use, with lots of templates and drag-and-drop features.


LibreOffice is an open-source office suite. It is the most popular alternative to Microsoft Office, and it is available for Windows, macOS and Linux.

It has a word processor (Writer), spreadsheet application (Calc), presentation program (Impress) and drawing/doodling application (Draw). There are also extensions that can be installed to add other capabilities such as database management or mathematical formulae editing.

There are many programs available to help you create a resume. You can use these programs to format the content, add pictures, and customize your resume. However, it is important to keep in mind that not all programs are created equal. Some may offer more features than others while still being easy enough for anyone with basic computer skills (or even just access to one) can use. The most important thing when using any program is that it allows you put together an effective document with little hassle or confusion. 

Now that you have an idea of the different programs to use, the next is figuring out what information to include for your job search.
