Introducing OS Resume (Oversimplified Resume Builder)

Clerk Hackathon Submission

What problems does OS Resume solve?

One Resume Format (Consistency)
Many companies get a ton of resume's but most of those resumes get rejected just because they were poorly structured, alignment was not maintained, or maybe missed some vital information (assume Education, Career Objective, etc).

Having a resume format helps recruiters in locating specific information in specific spots on a candidate's resume. So, that they don't have to look at different spots to figure out where the email (or any other relevant information) is. It also ensures that the candidate knows what information is mandatory.

⚒ What did I use to build this? 🛠

  • Authentication: Clerk
  • Form Validations: Since there is a lot of form validations in this project. I figured it would be best to use Formik and Yup.

  • Support for almost all Google Fonts: A JSON from Google Fonts.
  • UI Components: Material UI
  • CSS Framework: Tailwind CSS 💙
