Build a Resume with Resume Designer Pro

Resume Designer ProIf you have ever wanted to build or update a resume while on the go, Resume Designer Pro is a great new app for iOS devices that makes this a very realistic possibility. The app, which is currently free for a limited time, walks users through the process of creating a professional looking resume. The tool is designed to be user friendly even for those with limited experience creating resumes. It offers the ability to add a range of different sections to your resume and offers a brief description of each section to give you a sense of what information to include in that section. I think this could make the app a nice option for first-time resume creators who have a hard time knowing where to begin as they stare at a blank page. Available sections in the app include Objectives, Skills, Work Experience, Volunteer Experience, Education, Interests and Activities, References, Events and a free text section if those options don’t meet your needs. You also have the option to include a photo of yourself, though this is not required.

Once you have added all of your information in the app, you can select from 16 different themes. You can also create a cover letter, with a sample letter provided as a starting point. Finished documents can be previewed and then further edited as necessary. If you are happy with your document, you can share it to another app on your device, print it or email it directly from within Resume Designer Pro. You can also duplicate resumes if you want to use your base resume as a starting point for personalized resumes for individual job applications.

This app is a nice option for those who are looking for a way to create, maintain and share their resume while on the go. I particularly think that the prompts will be helpful for those who are new to the process. The app comes preloaded with three sample resumes that will also guide beginners in the resume creation process. If you think it sounds interesting, try it while it is free.
