It can take hours to find the right template, plug in the basic details, make someone’s experience sound impressive, and then edit everything down to one page.
That’s why we created the RS Works Platform.
We saw the challenges that job-seekers and career coaches faced when writing resumes. And we saw too many people trapped in a cycle of low-paying, unfulfilling roles - often because their resumes weren’t selling their capabilities.
So we set out to create a comprehensive solution for career services professionals to develop resumes that stand out, quickly and easily. RS Works helps workforce teams to create beautiful, effective resumes in minutes. Our intuitive platform guides staff through the resume-building process, and our library of templates gives you access to professional designs that are easy to edit. Plus, all of our resumes are optimized for ATS, so you can be sure participant resumes will make it through the screening process.
Our founder spent 15 years writing resumes for 10,000 professionals, with many landing over 40% raises at highly competitive companies like Google, Microsoft, NYU, HBO, and the UN. As a social worker, she wanted to make her methods accessible to the job-seekers who most needed them. So we took our insights, templates, bullets, and best practices, hired a development team in 2020, and got to work making the most intuitive, easy-to-use resume platform on the market.

This platform was created for the most underestimated job seekers: the barista making $32,000/year. The job coach who helps immigrants land their first job in the US.
