If you've heard of Canva, then you probably think of it as a social media graphics site where marketers go to whip up quick infographics without having to use Photoshop. What you may not know is that it's also a great place to shop around for beautiful resume templates to dazzle potential employers and spruce up your job application. And while there are many resume design sites out there, like Zety for example, Canva tends to have more selection and a wider range of graphic design options.

For jobseekers who are more traditional, Canva also has a ton of black and white resume templates, or you can use the design tool to change the color of any of the colorful ones I've mentioned so far. This resume layout is great for almost any career path. It has plenty of space for your professional experience and you can edit it to collapse the section headings you don't need: (Source: candor.co)

If you're fresh out of school (or still in school), you may not have enough work experience to fill a whole page with bullet points and end up with a lot of white space. This is a common frustration, but nothing some clever formatting can't fix. In the example below, the resume template has a large amount of space in the header dedicated to your name.

Here’s where Canva becomes your best friend. Forget spending hours battling with your laptop over spacing and layout, Canva’s free Resume Builder will allow you to choose from hundreds of free, designer-made resume templates. It’s so easy to get caught up in details like fonts, colours and how the document looks. Don’t get me wrong — how it looks matters! But the content and substance matter more.
