How do I use the editor?
It's a WYSIWYG click and type jam. Follow the placeholders and the little guide icons that pop up occasionally. It's up to you to make the format work since what you input is exactly how it'll look on your public page, shared links, or exported PDF. We built in one formatting nicety – **markdown bold** works.
Do I have to add a profile pic?
Negative. Branch wants to help remove bias in the hiring process, so the choice is yours, and the layout adapts to look good without one. We encourage experimentation, send out the same resume with and without pics and do some A/B testing. If you do, let us know how it turns out.
Can I create multiple versions?
Yep. Branch versions really is the only big feature. We want to make it easy for you to have a quiver of resumes, each tailored for different opportunities. Right now you can create as many as you want. We'll see how that goes after a few months.
Where do I put my contact info?
We thought about that, and decided that we don't want introduce complexity around storing and serving up your valuable email address and phone number. Instead, just pop in a URL that you have control over so interested folks can hit you up there. We're thinking LinkedIn, GitHub, AngelList, etc. will work.
How can I share my Branch resume?
There's a few ways:
- Make your main resume public at your /~username.
- Export a PDF.
- Create individual shareable links that can be tracked by impression.
How do you make a table?
You make a chair, but you don't sit on it.
How do I do everything else?
Branch is built in the time-honored UX style of Pragmatic Brutalism. Everything you can accomplish is located in the toolbar of the editor. If it's not there, it's not a feature...yet. If there's something we've overlooked, let us know at email@example.com.
