    "Makes your computer vulnerable to all Internet Threats"

    July 26, 2013   |   By blswb3

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 17.0

    Pros

    Historically a good program

    Cons

    According to the IT Help desk for this software - installing this software will require that you remove all protection from your computer and your network and that you then wait a few days for their computer technician to remotely take over your desktop. Probably a really bad idea to do this!

    Summary

    Because I liked and earlier version of this program, I was confident when I purchased and downloaded an updated version of it directly from the company that makes it several days ago. I use a lot of software and have never had problems installing any of it...but this product will not install. When I added in the activation key, I got an error message telling me that the software could not connect to the activation server. When I contacted their help desk, I was told my anti-virus software was preventing the connection. I turned it off and still was not able to activate the software. I sent that information to the technician who responded that something in MY network was preventing the connection and I needed to turn off ALL protection on the computer and on my network. Funny that I have never had this problem before with ANY other product...but I had my IT savvy son help me turn off EVERYTHING that protects my computer and the software still would not activate. I notified the tech again. He STILL said it was my network...and I will have to give him remote access to my computer in order to get this activated. I don't really like that idea - so I called the company...they just refer you to their technicians. Their technicians do not appear to actually be available to help...they just respond with a canned "It's your fault...undo all of your computer's protection" message. I bought this software because I needed it when I bought it...the day may come when it actually works - but I am not convinced. Who programs a piece of software so that the installing computer has to be completely unprotected in order to activate it? That sounds like a really bad idea in today's virus riddled world. Even if this turns out to be the very best resume software ever (and I may never get to find out)...it is really badly designed for installation.

    Do not waste your money on this software. You do not want to have to open your computer up for mischief and you should not have to let the software company take over your desktop in order to use the software you paid for. Even if you are willing to do that - you may never actually get an appointment to do that - so you may never get to use the product you purchase. Their are other options...I strongly suggest you use them - at least until this software manufacturer starts caring about their customers.

    "Great Options for Writing Resumes!"

    April 25, 2012   |   By dayi56

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 17.0

    Pros

    Great Sample Resumes if your like me and sometimes need help getting started with what to add or even how to add it., Job Search Tools and Online Resume Posting. Not sure what others are complaining about...I have a Windows 7 64-bit Computer and was able to install run program and create resumes without any issues.

    Cons

    Trial could be longer.

    Summary

    I really liked this product, especially the Resume Wizard and Sample Resumes. After trying it out for a day I decided to purchase product since I know in this Job Market you have to be ready for anything. I really like the Free Mobile App which lets me change things from my Droid and search for jobs. I still have not used all the different features but the key thing I wanted was to create resumes and do job searches and this is great for that especially if you need help with what to put in your resume and formating.

    "This is a fraud"

    February 28, 2012   |   By lefrantzen

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    None whatsoever. This software is a fraud.

    Cons

    Despite having fulfilled the minimum requirements stated on their own website this software does not install. I have asked for support and received none, likewise for a refund.

    Summary

    A complete fraud. Do not buy this software.

    "RMP not compatible by Windows 7 64 bit"

    October 31, 2011   |   By Didi888

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    No any pros. ResumeMaker Professional cannot work under Win 7. After instalation this software can't start anyway.

    Cons

    They don't offer money back. After several money back requests, they send my only information for instalation steps. Have to say am very disappointed from ResumeMaker Pro.

    Summary

    Don't waste you time whit this software!

    "How is this a free trial?"

    July 18, 2011   |   By jimdaddy14

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    Seemed to be working well and had some good ideas.

    Cons

    I got halfway through my first resume and it said my trial had expired. I didn't even get to complete one resume.

    Summary

    Find something else. I guess what you pay for.

    "Not a free trial. would not work at all"

    March 01, 2011   |   By dsaonly

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros. since this trial offer would not work.

    Cons

    Not a free trial as advertised. A total waste of time, unale to evaluate as software would not work without purchasing an activation key.

    Summary

    Don't was your time try another option

    "Won't start in Windows 7"

    February 08, 2011   |   By wadco911

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    I bought this program a few years ago, and it seemed adequate for the job. I'm a writer by trade, though, so I wound up using it more as a guide than a "wizard."

    Cons

    Couldn't get my program to install from the CD. Downloaded the trial from their website and it wouldn't run. Soooo... I was a bit unhappy because I was on a deadline, but just did the resume from scratch.

    Summary

    Can't evaluate the new version; won't run. If it's about the same as the one I bought, I'd probably give it three stars. Would have given it an n/a because I can't evaluate it, but that's not available.

    "Excellent For People New To Resume Writing"

    June 10, 2009   |   By wendy3136

    Version: ResumeMaker Professional 15.0

    Pros

    Easy-easy to use. Walked me through the whole resume writing process, even provides videos of helpful tips, and words and phrases to help you sell yourself. Also gives the option to save your resume in Word, which I like a lot.

    Cons

    I lost my first resume attempt, but it was probably my own fault.

    Summary

    Great product for anyone who needs to write a resume, even those who have never written one before or haven't written one in years. Well worth the money.

    Updated on Jun 10, 2009

    I also love the Cover Letter options. So easy to use!
