IntelliCustomResumes allows users to create resumes that are customized for particular job descriptions. Or at least, that's what it's supposed to do. We're not entirely sure it does much of anything.

IntelliCustomResumes operates on the premise that keywords in a job description should also appear in one's resume, which is a pretty standard bit of wisdom when applying for jobs. We liked the idea of a program that could help users make their resumes more relevant, but if our experience is any indication, the program isn't much help. The interface is plain and not particularly attractive, and though some features are intuitive--each step is represented by a numbered button--others are not. Users paste their existing resume into one box and the description of the position that they're applying for in another. In the third step, the program is supposed to create "an intelligent custom resume" based on the user's resume and keywords in the job description, but we couldn't detect any difference between the so-called custom resume and our original resume. The program then allows users to view a list of unmatched keywords, which can be added manually to their resumes; that's nice, but we didn't need a piece of software to do it for us. Overall, the program did not seem to be particularly useful; users would be better off customizing their resumes on their own.

IntelliCusotmResumes has a 30-day trial period. The program comes as a ZIP file and though it installs politely, it leaves a folder behind upon removal. We do not recommend this program.
