How to Post or Upload a Resume

You can create an Indeed Resume through your Indeed account. Once you have created and confirmed your Indeed account, please sign in and navigate to the resume tab.

How to upload your resume

If you already have a resume saved on your device, click on the "Upload Resume" button and select the file you would like to upload. This will automatically populate the text fields with your information. Indeed creates your resume using a standardized format that allows you to easily apply to job postings using our platform. When you initially upload your resume, its visibility will be set to public. To change your resume visibility settings, feel free to read how to make your resume public or private.

When uploading your resume, make sure that the file is text-based. We recommend uploading a file type that is either a Word document (.doc, .docx), a PDF created from a text file (not scanned in as an image), or a plain .txt, .rtf, .html, or .odt file. Also, be sure that your file is no greater than 5 MB in size.

How to create a resume

If you would like to create a blank resume from scratch, click the "Create a blank resume" link. Click continue after each section of your resume is manually inputted until it is complete. 

Using your own resume file 

Indeed Resume is a feature we offer but it is not required to apply to jobs on our site. If you would like to apply to jobs using your own resume file, you may do so by uploading it whenever an apply window pops up, or in cases where an employer takes you to an external site, you may upload it there.

Note: If you delete your Indeed Resume, your profile section will also be deleted. Likewise, if you upload a new resume, you may need to re-enter information in your profile section.
