    This handy program walks you through the resume building process step by step. After you input your data, you can choose from a collection of designs for your resume. Toggle through each template to see which design suits your taste.

    Resume Builder's well-designed interface makes it easy for users to quickly get started, but there is a comprehensive Help file for extra guidance. Once we selected the New Resume option from the menu, we were prompted to enter our basic contact information. From there, you can enter all of your other important resume information by following the steps with Resume Builder's Data wizard. The whole process takes less than an hour, which is great if you need a resume quickly and with minimal fuss. The program is also perfect for people who are not well versed in basic design layout. Once we inputted the data for our test resume, we liked how there were so many designs from which we could choose, and altering the design and font took only a few simple clicks. The program does have the capability to export your resume into Microsoft Word or as HTML, but those features are disabled during the brief, 10-day trial period.

    Once uninstalled, the program did leave a folder in our Program Files that had to be manually removed. If you don't want to go through the hassle of creating a resume with a word processing program, or if you need to be able to create and edit your resume quickly, Resume Builder is a great solution.

      "Great product BEWARE-ADWARE WAS ADDED IN THE DOWNLOAD"

      April 30, 2014   |   By djm02

      Version: Resume Builder 4.8

      Pros

      I've purchased this program in the past and it is excellent. The format allows you to enter your data independent of the style or format. (then you can easily change the style/format at any time)
      also, since everything is modular, you can choose to publish some items and not others. This gives you the ability to quickly customize your resume for different needs.

      Cons

      My only complaint was with what came along (piggy backed). After I installed the software, I found my browser slowed down. Then noticed popup ads began to appear (bottom right of the web page). I got suspicious and checked my recently installed programs in the control panel. 3 items were installed today. Resume builder and two adware programs that I didn't ask for. These were not present prior to loading the resume builder. I uninstalled the and everything is fine now. I do not appreciate sneaky piggy back downloads/installs. It is crappy practice and no self respecting business should be part of this practice. I'm paying for the damn software, I should get ads shoved in my face as well.

      Summary

      If I knew about the piggy back adware, I probably would have looked for an alternative and given my money to someone else...even if the software wasn't as good.
