Frequently Asked Questions

Small yellow page divider
What should a resume look like?

Your resume should look like a million bucks. Just kidding, that’s not possible.

All jokes aside, your resume should look professional and organized with the following sections:

  • Contact header
  • Work Experience
  • Skills
  • Education

If you’re a noob, you might opt for adding an objective; if you’re a seasoned vet who can rattle off your career highlights, consider adding a resume summary.

Cap your resume at one page to keep employers and recruiters from dozing at the wheel.

There you have it. Fill those sections out with high-quality and truthful work accomplishments, and you’ll have a resume that’s as close to a million bucks as you’ll ever get.

Why use a resume builder?

So, have you ever actually tried making a resume in Google Docs or Word?

We’ll wait.

Oh, hi. 👋🏽 You’re back.

Yeah, it’s incredibly frustrating—as in going gray, pulling hair out by the second—trying to use word processing software that was never designed for building a resume. You stretch out a text box to add another skill, and it’s like a machete went to town on your document: letters, numbers, text boxes—everywhere. Cohesive, organized resume? Nowhere in sight.

A good resume builder (cough, cough, shameless plug for BeamJobs) makes it easy and quick to create, update, duplicate, and edit your resume.

If you can answer “yes” to the following, you’ve found a good resume builder:

  • Is it easy to create multiple resumes for different job applications?
  • Do I like the resume templates they offer? (If you don’t, chances are hiring managers won’t be impressed either.)
  • Does the builder give me actionable feedback to improve my resume?
Why use BeamJobs?

The job hunt has a knack for sucking the life right out of you. That’s where we come in. We want to boost your confidence, remove uncertainty, and make the whole kit and caboodle a bit less soul-draining. Practically, here’s how we make that happen:

  • Our resume builder makes it seamless for you to edit and update your resume (think: editing like a Google Doc). On top of that, AI plus years of our team’s expert job advice make sure you know exactly where to improve and how to improve your resume.
  • Of course, you want head-turning resume templates that are modern, professional, and ATS-friendly to boot—and while we don’t know why you’d want the hassle of editing them in Docs and Word, you can even download them for free in those formats.
  • Load your resume and the job description into our cover letter generator for a picture-perfect first impression. We’d say, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show, but you won’t even have time to pop the corn before your cover letter’s ready!
  • Choose a matching cover letter template, and you’ve got a dynamic duo between your cover letter and resume that’s ready to take on the competitive job market.
Do you have examples for my job?

You betcha we do! We’ve got over 2,000 resume examples specific to your career, niche, and experience level. No one in your family may understand what you do as a healthcare data analyst, and none of your friends may know what it’s like to be an acquisition program manager—but we do! Whether you’re looking for a resume for retail or something as niche as an immigration paralegal, we’ve got your back.

When you're solid on your resume, you’ll find our job-specific cover letter examples notches above the average letter that lands on a hiring manager’s desk.

Not only do we give you real (and free) resume and cover letter samples, but we’ll guide you every step of the way so you know what works and what details are important for you to include.

Do I need to write a cover letter?

Do you want to stand out?

Of course, you do. That’s why you’re here.

So, yes, you should write a cover letter. Many job descriptions specifically request them. For the ones that don't, a thoughtful, quality cover letter is your ticket forward.

The cold, hard facts are that the vast majority of job candidates are not taking the time to write a cover letter—and if they are, they’re writing a generic business letter that could be mass-produced and passed out to literally any open job. Does the sound of that bore you to tears?


And that’s why a custom cover letter that complements your resume and addresses the specific company and their needs makes you the brightest crayon in the box.

Can you help me with my account?

We’d love to help you with your account and answer your questions. We think AI is cool and all that jazz, but there’s nothing more frustrating than a silly robot holding you up from answering your questions and getting you on your way.

Our customer support team is on their A-game and ready to help you. Email us at [email protected] and expect to be greeted by a real person with real answers and real kindness.

Who's behind BeamJobs?

My twin brother, Justin, and I (Stephen) quit our jobs at Chegg and Google in May 2018 to enter a brave new world, aka BeamJobs. We kicked off a recruiting agency in November 2018, but that work was soul-draining.

Pivoting from that, we built a tool to curate job recommendations, but Justin and I spent far too many hours of free labor putting together recommendations for job seekers. We knew something had to give, and gratefully, sending out these recommendations uncovered an interesting pain point: People hate writing resumes or don’t know how—or both. Thus, the BeamJobs resume builder was born in April 2020, and our first resume guide popped onto the scene.

Since then, we’ve helped more than 2 million job seekers like you create their best resume. We’ve made approximately a jillion mistakes as we’ve ramped up content production with resume and cover letter guides, improved the resume builder, and built a cover letter generator—with loads more planned to make this your one-stop shop for your job hunt.
