A new resume tool within Testing and Education Reference Center (TERC) is now available through a partnership with VisualCV, a well-established consumer service for facilitating the creation of resumes and cover letters. Through this integration of VisualCV Resume Creator, TERC users now gain access to:

  • 18 default templates for creating well-designed resumes, with additional textual examples provided by industry and experience level
  • Various editing options, including a text-based form editor, a visual editor, and the ability to upload existing resumes
  • A cover letter editor, which includes three sample templates
  • A website editor, which lets users quickly create a website for their resume that can be shared with potential employers
  • An external library of 5,000 resume examples across varied industries

The current Resume Builder and new VisualCV Resume Creator will both remain available in TERC for a transition period.  A notification will be added in TERC to advise when the Resume Builder will be removed in order to give time for patrons to save existing resume information or import a previous resume into the new resume writing tool.  Further information on timeline will be forthcoming from Gale.
