How Do I Share My Resume and Cover Letter?
When your resume is ready, you can use Resume.io to share an online link to your resume for free. By default your materials are private and only shared if you choose to use our sharing features. You can easily download a PDF of your cover letter to be saved and shared with employers.
Sharing a link is a convenient and modern way to send your resume/and or cover letter via email, social media message, or even via text message. You can use our premium design themes online for free without upgrading to a premium account.
How to Share a Resume
Each version of your resume has its own unique URL that can be shared. If you have multiple versions of your resume, you'll have different URLs you can share as well.
To share a resume, go to your resume dashboard and click “More” on the drop-down menu to access the “Share a link” option. You can also access the “Share a link” option by clicking on the “…” on the bottom right side of the preview page. See the screenshot below.
From there you'll see a page where you can:
- Copy & paste the URL to send via email, message, or text or
- Click the button to share on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn
How It Works
Sharing on social media
If you share your resume on social media, we add formatting to your post to get you started but you can always edit anything about the post before you share it.
Our unique Statistics feature that allows you to see your resume views over the short and long term. Find out how long someone viewed your resume and from what location. Being able to identify global opportunities based on the city/country of your resume viewers will help to ensure you don’t miss engaged recruiters! Track the changing trends in your resume views to gauge the interest of viewers and make changes when you feel necessary.
Any updates or edits you make to your resume will be visible right away in the resume displayed on the public webpage.
Deleting and/or Making a Resume Private
Once you share a URL, your resume is no longer private. Technically, somebody can copy and share that URL in the future.

If you have shared a URL but want to make sure that resume is no longer accessible at that URL, the best way to do this is to duplicate your resume that was shared and then delete it. That way your resume will be associated with a URL that hasn't been shared yet.
Once a resume is deleted, the old URL will redirect to a 404 page.
