As you may have noticed, things are looking a little bit different around here. Over the last couple of months the whole Resume Genius team has been working to revitalize our entire resource collection as well as our resume builder software. From improved resume samples and updated resume guides to all new industry sections we’ve completely overhauled our free resources. Here are some of our brand new additions:
An All-New Resume Templates Resource
Perhaps our most ambitious improvement was the addition of an all-new resume templates section. With dozens of free downloadable templates, we offer a wide variety of ways the thrifty job hunter can create a professional looking resume for free.
Our templates are all professionally written and designed to cover the entire spectrum of industries and job seeker type. From “Expert recommended classics” to industry specific templates we have a framework for everyone. Downloading these templates and inserting your own information is a snap.
We will be adding more industry templates in the future as well as some truly inspirational limited addition templates that will be sure to gain the attention of even the most seasoned HR Manager. Check back to see our latest additions.
New Librarian Writing Guide
As with all of our resume-writing guides, we spared no expense in researching key elements of impactful librarian resumes. Every industry is different, and thus requires a different approach in resume composition. To validate our research we sat down with veteran Librarians to confirm our information and add their own insights.
We are confident the resulting resource is the most authoritative on the web. As always, the samples are completely free to download as well, all we ask is a little social media love.
Redesigned Checklist Downloads
We’ve redesigned our downloads page to be as straightforward and easy to use as possible. We’ve organized our Resume, Cover Letter, Thank You Letter and Interview checklists to make them easier to download.
By simply supporting us on Facebook, Twitter or G+ you can download these comprehensive PDF checklists to ensure you haven’t missed a single thing in your job-hunting journey. Check back regularly as we provide more checklists in the future
Super Easy to Navigate Job Resources Directory
Our comprehensive Job Resources directory has been overhauled to provide simple and intuitive navigation so you can find exactly what you are looking for.
All sections are separated with brief descriptions and an image depicting what the section is about. If you don’t see what you want right away simply use the search function at the top of the page or in the sidebar to search our entire resource database.
As with all of our resources, we are working feverishly to expand our Job Resources as well, so if you have a particular question or want to learn more about any aspect of job hunting simply leave us a comment and one of our Resume Genius’ will personally respond.
New, Faster Resume Builder App
We’ve separated our resume building software from our resources in order to better optimize the software and user experience. Our actual software is now at app.resumegenius.com instead of resumegenius.com. This makes most technical sense since our software is an actual web application and is separate from our resume writing resources and blog. Our software has been updated to run faster and smoother than ever before, so if you are indeed looking to build a resume, head on over to our resume builder.
Additionally we will be expanding our samples and writing guide selections to cover even more in-demand industries, so if we haven’t covered yours yet, let us know and we’ll add it to our list.
Don’t forget to check out newly designed blog for original articles and research on job hunting, interviewing and other interesting employment topics. You might be surprised by what you learn.
For example, in a recent article we debunked the The Ladders famous “HR recruiters only look at your resume for 6 seconds” myth.
Before that we investigated how LinkedIn isn’t actually as helpful as many think it may be.
Throughout our improvements and expansion our mission remains the same: to provide the best in quality employment resources on the web. As a team of committed resume writing experts, career experts and interview experts, we write about what we feel are the most useful and impactful topics within employment.
This means we want to hear from people like you, about what you want to read and what will help you find a job.
You can leave us comments at the bottom of every page of our resources. Feel free to ask any question you’d like. You can also find us on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Additionally you can email us directly at social [at] resumegenius.com. We are anxious to here from you, so what are you waiting for, introduce yourself today!
We’re looking forward to seeing you around!
