ResumeBear can be used to create a professional-looking resume. You can upload a resume you already have prepared and then format it into one of the available templates. You can also use ResumeBear to create your own resume from scratch. When your resume is created, you can e-mail it to potential employers. You can also search the indeed.com job data base right from the ResumeBear app. Note that the app is less useful to non-US residents as some of the functions, such as the job search, require US zip codes or addresses.Show more screenshots »
ResumeBear founder Robert Warren is a business development specialist and marketing strategist with more than 25 years of experience, including working on numerous startups. He created ResumeBear in 2008 and Heath Brebagh joined as CEO in 2011. The app has been more active since then, adding a jobs data base and surpassing 100,000 daily visits by April of 2012. In late 2011, Resumebear signed a partnership with HirePatriots.com to serve military veterans. It also formed a partnership with TrustedID to prevent identity theft and cooperates with Resume2Hire for professional resume writing services.
ResumeBear is expanding and offering a wider variety of services. ResumeBear is now more than a simple resume creation app. It offers professional resume writing for a fee and has partnered with job boards to make data bases searchable from the app itself. The extensive template selection, free online advice and other tools build a genuinely professional-looking resume.
The app is simple to use. You can upload a resume you already have prepared or create one online. If you upload an existing resume, you can simply choose one of the templates in the app and it will reformat it for you. The template comes with several boxes to fill in, including work history, cover letter, name, address and more. Many of the functions, such as the address and job searches, are meant for people living in the United States. The app can still be used by residents of other nations but job searches will be of less use to them.
Click the Sign Up Now button at the upper right hand corner of the app's main page to start the registration process. From there, you simply write your e-mail address in the box provided. You must also indicate whether you are a job seeker or an employer and accept the Terms and Conditions. You will receive a confirmation e-mail and a password to access the app. From there, you must fill in your name, address and other personal details before creating a resume. You can also choose to receive e-mail notices every time your resume is being viewed.
The application is free.
The application is primarily for people in the United States seeking a job. It can be used by people in other countries but the job search functions and some of the resume creation functions are geared towards US residents. It is ideal for people with little experience or creativity in creating their own resume.
