Resume-making tools are a dime a dozen, but free webapp CeeVee has notable advantages. Auto-filling from Facebook profiles, easy print and PDF export, and simple editing tools make it more convenient than manhandling Word for an hour.

If you’ve filled out your work history on Facebook and connect with CeeVee through a Connect log-in, your resume is auto-filled with the most pertinent contact and experience portions. You’ll definitely want to tweak those lines a bit, and CeeVee makes that easy, offering sectional editing that leaves the page looking good, even after you yank out that whole section about what a joke your internship was.

If you’d like to share your resume online, you get a ceevee.com/yournamehere URL, and embeddable badges for your site. The employer looking at your resume can easily print or save it to PDF, and you control what’s seen publicly. All in all, it’s a clean-looking edit tool that produces crisp resumes, and it seems worth the small time investment to try out. One complaint from a quick test, though—don’t require the “Position at Company” structure. As you can see in the example, it requires freelancers to work “at will,” or something similarly creative.

CeeVee is a free service, requires a sign-up to save a resume.
