The Resume Builder allows students to download a resume in Microsoft Word format based on the information in their Cialfo profile. This gives students the ability to manipulate and redesign the format using any design they choose.

Update: Cialfo has rolled out an updated User Experience (UX). For a limited amount of time, clients will be able to switch from using the new UX and previous UX. This article will address both types of UX.

New User Experience (UX)

Information Included In The Student Resume

Three types of information drawn from the student's account: 

  1. Personal Information
  2. Grades (GPA)
  3. Extracurricular Activities

Personal Information
The following Personal Information is automatically included in the resume: Name, Email, Phone number, Address, Current High School and Graduation Year.


Grades/GPA
The student's GPA is automatically pulled in from the 'Grades' section. A score must be filled in any 1 of the GPA boxes: School GPA, Estimated GPA or GPA (4.0).


Extracurricular Activities
Students can select the Extracurricular information that is pulled in from the activities entered in the 'Extracurricular Activities' section.

To Generate The Resume

To generate a resume, go to Profile > Dashboard and click on the 'Create Resume' button in the top right corner. 

  • Select the Extracurricular activities to add to the resume.
  • Add additional information such as a cover letter, skills and languages.
  • Once all the required information has been filled, click 'Download' to generate the resume as a Microsoft Word doc.

Students can then use the resume as it's downloaded, or play around and redesign and/or highlight specific items.
