Editors' Review

+

Free Resume Builder makes it easy to organize and create resumes in seven, easy-to-follow steps. The resume it gives you is well formatted and will include all the necessary details you need. However, since there are zero ways you can customize it, the final output might not be as impressive as you'd want.

The download comes with a custom installer and a few junk programs and toolbars, which you can easily decline. For what it's worth, the program, itself, installs really quickly. Free Resume Builder gives you a step-by-step guide to completing your resume, which is really easy to follow and navigate. It won't let you advance until you've inserted enough information in each category. It has all the expected categories like experience, school history and even a slot for an objective. Once you're done filling out your information, you can export it as a PDF or a DOC file. The downside of this program is that there is no option to change the way your resume looks, so the final product might not wow you.

Free Resume Builder performs a single task but it does so without any bugs. The final product is not breathtaking but it will suffice if you're looking for a basic and quick solution for creating a functional resume. If it only let you choose some of the graphic elements that went into your final copy, it would be a real winner.

"disappointed"

November 18, 2015

2015-11-18 23:43:37

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0

Pros

cant find any

Cons

could not save the file

Summary

After wasting so much of time filling the info, i was not able to save it so basically it was really disappointing. this is making me to move on in search of some other resume builder. and finally i found it which i don't even need to download as it is available online. http://instaresume.nevontech.com/ this was much better, easy and most importantly its free and yes it also saves the file at the end

"download included downloads I don't want/need, useless."

September 21, 2015  |  By thomassonjo

2015-09-21 19:09:28  |  By thomassonjo

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0

Pros

I couldn't even find the product, so there are no pros to this resume builder.

Cons

I needed to make a resume, cnet has been there for me in the past and have some great downloads from it, however, this one was a major disappointment. It had things attached to it you could not opt out of, the download showed up nowhere on the desktop and it was a total waste of my time. Please check these things out better next time around. True disappointment.

Summary

I had to go look elsewhere for a resume builder download since this particular one was a total waste of time and space on my computer. Won't make this mistake again.

"Only a terrible program offer no way to save your work."

August 18, 2015  |  By borntoedit

2015-08-18 21:21:07  |  By borntoedit

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0

Pros

Appears on initial inspection to offer a simple, easy to use interface.

Cons

If you don't save all your text in another program, like MS Word, prepare to be badly disappointed when suddenly all your hard work to create a resume just disappears when you close the program. Since CNET gave it a positive review, I almost want to think it's my fault, but I've looked at the program several times and there appears to be NO help and NO way to save a resume in progress.

Summary

Don't waste your time with this one.

"Useless for UK users"

May 20, 2015  |  By owen19842

2015-05-20 07:10:56  |  By owen19842

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0

Pros

Can't say anything good about it because I can't use it

Cons

it does have other installers which I see other reviewers complaining about even someone claiming to be a software designer...the fact is they ARE really easy to not download in the first place, I was excited at first but on the first page it asked me for a state...I live in the United Kingdom so I don't live in a state, unfortunately because I can't answer the question I can't get off the 1st page

Summary

I'm sure this COULD be a good program if it was a little more versatile and not strictly for US users

"Cannot Save the Resume!"

March 25, 2014  |  By GoBoSoxx

2014-03-25 12:04:13  |  By GoBoSoxx

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.2

Pros

Simple interface.

Cons

Cannot even save the resume. If you have so much as one single solitary typo, you have to re-type the entire resume all over again. Ridiculous!

You only get one resume layout to choose from. Extremely simplistic! This program must have been written by some kid in junior high.

Summary

That CNet gave this software 3 stars says very little about the standards they hold for decent software. That someone cannot even save and reopen the resume they so painstakingly worked to build is galling.

No, the software is not broken. There literally is no save button in the program.

"Junk spam installer"

January 28, 2014  |  By malorian

2014-01-28 12:45:05  |  By malorian

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0.0.2

Pros

its a decent workout trying to get this to install without hijacking your web browser or installing 5 different apps from weather updates to search bar add ons

Cons

after declining all of the worthless spam and junk add ons the download failed...

Summary

advertising scheme that will take some time to recover your pc from if you just hit ok install, accept accept accept, keep looking this program is a mess

"Doesn't Work"

January 28, 2014  |  By JHawkins88

2014-01-28 06:24:28  |  By JHawkins88

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0.0.2

Pros

It gives me a list of programs I don't want.

Cons

Oh wait...that's a con. It gives me a list of third party programs I don't want.

Summary

After asking me to decline 5 third party programs, the actual software doesn't even bother to install. I am a very experienced Windows user and Software developer and I cannot understand how this is getting so many 5 star ratings when it doesn't even work.

"Contains malware"

January 07, 2014  |  By Lyon111

2014-01-07 09:07:56  |  By Lyon111

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0.0.2

Pros

Did not install it

Cons

Did not install it

Summary

I scanned it with my antivirus and it alerted me to the present of malware. I also scanned it with VirusTotal and several security tools consider it malware. So, I will not install it in my PC.

If the Free Resume Builder creator explains why this is happening and stops it from happening, I will install it and give a better review. Until then, I will not give more than 0.5 of 5.0 stars.

"MALWARE, BEWARE!"

November 17, 2013  |  By uydurukadam

2013-11-17 05:09:13  |  By uydurukadam

 |  Version: Free Resume Builder 1.0

Pros

At least you can uninstall (or I hope that I was able to) unistall all the junk, spyware on my computer

Cons

It immediately installed WITHOUT MY CONSENT a Registry cleaner, a backup app, and another piece of crapware. In Cnet's description, it says "easily" you can bypass these but NO IT INSTALLS THIS CRAPWARE whether you like it or not.

Summary

Stay away. All the high marks are probably given by their own developers.
