Cypress Resume, Now Available to HPL Patrons!

Looking to apply for a job? Need a resume quickly but don’t know where to start? Try out Cypress Resume Creator, a new electronic resource available to HPL patrons. All you need is your library card number! This resource allows users to create resumes in three steps. Here is how the site describes the process:

  1. Enter your name, contact information, work history and education.
  2. Choose the title of your desired job or simply the skill set you wish to highlight.
  3. Finally, choose from a collection of concise and professional job statements to ensure your resume will stand out. And that’s it! In a few minutes you will have a great-looking, well-written resume that will give you the edge in today’s ultra-competitive job market.

  

In step one, choose the design you’d like (“Strictly Business” or “Editors’ Choice”), then fill in boxes with information such as work history, education, and certifications.

In step two, pick the job title that you seek. You can do a quick search, which brings up suggestions as you type, or you can browse through lists of industries and job titles.

In step three, choose from statements that highlight your skills from provided lists.

Once your resume is created, it goes into a document manager, where you can view the finished product, as well as download, edit, or delete it.

This service also has brief cover letters and makes reference lists using information submitted by users.

Cypress Resume is available in English and Spanish, and has desktop and mobile versions. If you have any questions about accessing or using this resource, please contact the reference staff at reference@haverhillpl.org.
