Design a resume that makes you stand out from the competition

If you need more specific elements, you can take advantage of Canva’s extensive media library which has over a million images, graphics, and illustrations. Most of these elements are free, while only a few cost $1 for each one-time use.

Print your resume or share via email as required

When you are done designing your resume, you can email it directly to the recruiter by clicking on the ‘share’ button and entering the email address of the recruiter. To let everyone know that you are actively looking for a job, share your resume directly on LinkedIn as an image.

Why is there a watermark on my resume? How can I remove it?

A watermark on your design means you have used a paid element from Canva’s media library. Don’t worry because you can easily remove the watermark from your design by clicking on the download button and paying for the visual element.
