ResumeMaker lets you create professional quality resumes and cover letters. When this program starts for the first time, it asks you to enter your personal details. The information is saved and automatically inserted into the text fields while creating your document. This application has a tab-based main interface with audio-guided wizards for all sub-sections.
You can start to create a resume from the first tab. There are two methods: either enter your details using the Guided Resume Wizard or select a form from the huge collection of samples and customize it. The audio instructions let you quickly understand various concepts.
Building a cover letter is similar to making a resume. The main thing I like about cover letter editor is the list of greetings, written paragraphs, and closing statements that can be copy-pasted to your document. There is also a separate section to edit the list of references.
Interview preparation is present under the second tab. Here, you can learn about the most common interview questions and the proper method of answering them through sample videos. It also works as a database to store your contacts and interview schedule. The Salary and Cost of Living Calculator makes this program even more useful. Just enter the job description and location the ResumeMaker will get the salary you may expect. This feature works on an online service called PayScale; hence, you will always get the latest information.
The last tab of contains Job Search Tools, which can scour though various employment websites to find the right job to suit your search criteria. It also has the ability to distribute your resumes though numerous work offering sites.
