Start by uploading your own photo using Canva's drag and drop image uploader. Use the frame or grid tool to contain your photo or crop if need be. With hundreds of fonts to choose from, you can let your personality shine by choosing a script-like font for your name and pairing it with a simpler font for the rest of the design. Create a border or add lines by searching through the elements tab to make important details stand out. Make your resume more visual by adding charts and icons to summarise important information. Once you've got a winning resume, you can download your resume as a JPEG, PNG, standard PDF or print-ready PDF file.
