Note: This gallery is also available as an article.
Easy Resume Creator Pro
Easy Resume Creator Pro sells for #34.95, but a freerntrial version is available for download.
JobTabs Free Resume Builder
The main thing I like about this app is that it isrnextraordinarily simple to use and allows for the creation of multiple resumernstyles. JobTabs also includes a nice thesaurus, with an onscreen verb list forrneasy reference. For example, the Communications Skills section lists words suchrnas composed and clarified.
Career Igniter Resume Builder
The disadvantage is that the application is limiting. Itrndoesn’t allow for multiple resume styles or for an extensive list ofrncertifications or work experience. Even so, it has its place. Career Igniter isrna good choice for those who are just starting out and need to create a resumernsimply and easily.
All Purpose Resumes
All Purpose Resumes sells for $15, but a free trial versionrnis available for download.
Multimedia Resume Maker
All in all, this application seems a bit gimmicky. Itrnfocuses almost exclusively on creating multimedia, with little resume-relatedrnguidance. I decided to include it here because I have always admiredrncreativity–and this app lends itself well to the creative process. Even so,rngetting a potential employer to install the viewer and watch the presentation mayrnbe difficult.
