Pathbrite
Pathbrite creators were primarily targeted at people who are looking for work for the first time in their life, that is, the students. Normally CV includes listing of places of previous work, but what to do for those who haven’t such experience at all, having the necessary qualifications? This service allows you to show your skills in the form of a continuously updated collage, a kind of visual story.

No doubts, online CVs, infographics and new professional social networks are nice additions to the classical format of CV that is still a must just in case. The good examples for such CVs can be found in Google templates library. But now you can test the service that embeds information by itself into the selected template.

CVmaker has 6 free classic templates. They are all simple, traditional and minimalist. CV is available in three formats: PDF, HTML and txt. In case you’re not satisfied with templates, you can visit CVmaker’s analogue – Spongresume.

Represent
It contains three types of templates: modern, classic and creative, as well as several colors to choose from. If you wish, you can add your own photo. CV can be sent using a link, while it’s automatically adapted to the desired device. Here you can also keep track of statistics of how many times your CV was viewed.

It is very simple constructor, in which sections of resume filled directly in front of you, so that all the shortcomings can be immediately corrected. Represent is paid – $ 10 per year. All templates are displayed at the bottom, although this is very important information. The only one significant disadvantage is that it’s not possible to specify the level of your language skills (only enumeration enabled).

Ineedaresu
Service allows you to quickly create a minimalistic summary. You can choose fonts (though not all of them are Cyrillic). Constructor contains several tips (for example, if you enter your old email that was created in 6th grade, the service will offer you to abandon it).

But there are no possibilities to export data from LinkedIn and to indicate the degree of language skills. There’s one standard template. And since there is no registration, if you clear the cache, you will have to fill in again.
