Create your resume

Are you ready to have a resume you're excited to share?

You could spend hundreds of dollars for someone else to make a resume that doesn't fit you or describe you, OR you can create your own that's a great fit for your goals and you.

I too used to struggle when I had to create or update a resume

Why does creating or updating a resume feel like pushing a boulder up a hill? Could it be because... it is exactly that?

Cristin Downs from Work and Worth Coach here. I definitely sweat when I had to make my own resume, but then people started wanting my help with theirs– yikes! Because I am an Obliger (Gretchin Rubin's Four Tendencies, anyone?), I helped. And what started as painful slowly wasn't.

I discovered that almost every knowledge worker role included the same types of job functions, and almost every industry was impressed by the same accomplishments – a resume creation system was born!

Common reasons people fail at making their resume

They can't get started

Either because their job is slowly sucking their soul from their body, they don't know what to do first, or their life is so overwhelmingly busy with kids and caretaking – so many would-be job seekers can't get that resume document open, let alone start typing in it.

They aren't sure what to do

If folks actually get to the open document, the next problem hits them. They aren't sure what to include, also what NOT to include, and then they're wondering if there are new formatting rules, and a terrible thought breaks in, "DO I NEED MY PICTURE ON MY RESUME" (No, you don't - don't do it!).

They don't know who to hire

Having problems with actually getting started and what to include sends a lot of people throwing up their hands and looking to hire help. But whom should they hire? And what kind of role are they even looking for? Also one resume is a couple hundred bucks, and I hear on LinkedIn, I probably need more than one (This actually is true).

"Partnering with Cristin to craft my resume was an excellent experience from start to finish. I was at a loss with how to approach it all after resigning this past December from a eighteen year long career, and considering a complete career change. My former position was unique, and thus challenging to capture for potential employers outside of my field.

Cristin captured the essence of me and beautifully highlighted my strongest skill set by teasing out my core strengths, which can now be more universally applied to a variety of roles. Coupled with this she created three versions of a resume to utilize in various roles as I explore where I want to go next."

This course will teach you the exact system *I* use to make my client resumes

This system has created thousands of resumes for hundreds of clients and generated millions of dollars in increased salary for my clients. I work through my recommended style, which is a chronological resume, and my recommended formatting, which is formatted for the ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems) that your resume will encounter. 

And then I work you through three different approaches for you to get that resume out of your brain and into a document, and all the different ways you can revise it to make the biggest possible impact.

Cristin did a lot for me in the time we worked together. She helped me build up my resume so it could work well with an ATS system and for the human reviewing it. She gave me strategies on how to apply, where to apply, and motivated me to keep going when I felt like I was getting nowhere. In addition to all that, the greatest thing Cristin did for me during my time with her was build up my confidence.

I felt so confident submitting specifically crafted resumes to targeted job postings. I more than doubled my income and found the work-life balance I had been seeking for years.

My personal 15-day no questions asked refund policy

Buying anything like this feels so risky. What if I am a charlatan?

Or maybe you aren't 100% confident that you personally are going to do the work.

Or maybe you do the work and you're just not vibing on my approach to the work.

All are possible, and that's why I give a no questions asked refund within 15 days of purchase. Just email me at and let me know you want a refund, and I'll process it within 48 hours. It can then take 7-10 business days to appear on your bank account (banks 🤷🏼 amirite?).

I always appreciate that you tested out my small business, even if it didn't work out.

I created this course for YOU!

This is PERFECT for you:

If you really want to be able to make a resume yourself instead of always hiring someone.
If you want to try for a couple of different roles in job search, for example go for your current role title and the next title up.
If you want to be able to adjust your resume for a job posting that comes up that's a perfect fit.
If you just don't know where to begin when it comes to creating your own resume.

This is NOT for you:

If you would prefer to always hire someone to create your resume (more power to you!).
If you already have a resume that you're using that is working well for you and your job search (that's awesome!).
You already know how to quickly and easily tailor your resume for a job posting (you have skills!).
If you would prefer not to figure it out for yourself; DIY isn't your thing (100% understand this!).

You are only 3 steps from success

Our most asked questions


Don't read these pages myself – you're in good company! This is a course designed to help you create your own chronological resume from scratch.

Why isn't there a live component to this?

Not having a live component helps keep the cost down, and my goal is for as many people to get to take the course as possible! But there will be live versions from time to time; keep an eye out, and I will let you know when.

Why are there 3 prices?

I wanted to give people as many options for support as possible – low cost up to continued support.

What if I prefer more one to one support?

I love that! Come and start a strategy session with me here.

How long will it take me to work through this content?

It really depends on you. You can get through the content in a weekend and implement in a week or vice versa. Or it might take longer if your time is not your own.

Everything is in small increments so you can pop in and out as you have time.

Is this program accessible?

Every piece of content is broken down into the smallest bit possible. Each section has a summary notes provided. There are videos with captions, speed control, and video quality control. There are transcripts.

I am always working to make my content more accessible so please feel free to email me at for your specific need.

Am I really going to be able to make my own resume?

Absolutely! People make their own resume from my resources and content all the time. And those resumes get people jobs. A personal claim to fame is someone who made a single resume, applied to a single remote job, and got it! Obviously rare, but I was proud of her!

Who are you? How did I get here?

Great questions!

I'm Cristin Downs, an Executive Coach at Work & Worth.

I’m a possibilitarian. Also an executive coach, a theatrical thinker, a producer, and a lot of formers – too many to list! I help fed up folks and determined do-gooders pivot from jobs they despise into a life they love because we deserve better.

How you got here – most likely you signed up for one of my free offers OR a friend sent you here. Two most common options. Glad you're here, either way.
