The Top 5 Resume Sites for Your Career was created to help Home Office Careers’ jobseekers create terrific resumes! Resumes are the first thing employers see about you, so it’s especially important to make yours outstanding to help you get a job faster. In fact, a great resume can help to double your chances of getting a job. To create this Top 5 resume site list, we reviewed many top resume sites and we found these 5 to be among the best we have seen to date!

Resumes are essential to getting a job. Your resume is your advertisement, it’s what you want companies to know of you. Hiring managers and employers are very busy people and the typical job post gets hundreds of applicants, so to stand out from the crowd, you must have a great resume that catches people’s attention. Here at Home Office Careers, we know firsthand how important a jobseeker’s resume is, because we understand it is very competitive to get most jobs. Work from Home Jobs are especially difficult to start, because there are typically hundreds of applications per work-at-home job post. The most important thing a jobseeker can do is having a great resume so that employers and hiring managers will remember you. Creating a top resume can be challenging, that’s why it’s important to turn to the best professional advice you can find.

Kickresume

Kickresume has an impressive website with beautiful resume templates. With Kickresume, jobseekers have a 60% better chance of getting a job and they had about 25 thousands resumes created last month! Kickresume was founded by recruiters and they use some very talented designers to produce very effective resumes.

1.) How long have you been helping users build and perfect their resumes/cover letters? How many users have you helped to date?

We started Kickresume together with my classmate Peter back at university when we both needed to write a resume for an internship so we created a very simple tool for us and our friends. In a few months though we found Kickresume used by a couple of thousand people! It is already 3 years and Kickresume helped more than 200,000 people who downloaded more than 400,000 resumes.

Resume Genius

Resume Genius has a fast system to help candidates quickly create a professional resume. Since 2009 Resume Genius has helped over 9 million jobseekers! Needless to say, Resume Genius is a leader and giant in the Resume industry. What I also liked about their site is the Employment Resources page, where they have information about cover letters and other useful jobseeker resources.

1.) How long have you been helping users build and perfect their resumes/cover letters? How many users have you helped to date?

Since 2009 we’ve helped over 9 Million job seekers make perfect resumes and cover letters to land more interviews for their dream jobs.

 

2.) What features set your site apart from other resume building websites?

Our resume software does the writing for you, formats your document into hiring manager-approved templates, and easily allows you to write several versions, making targeting each company individually a breeze. Best of all, our templates are optimized to defeat Applicant Tracking Systems. We also provide the web’s most comprehensive guides to help every job seeker craft the perfect resume and cover letter, and land employment.

 

3.) If you could share your most helpful resume tip, what would it be?

There is no certified way to write a resume. There are some who insist otherwise, but even certified professional resume writers will admit that, “a guiding principle of the résumé writing profession is that there are no hard and fast rules.” One thing everyone will also agree on — your resume should be targeted to the company you’re applying for.

ResumUP

ResumUp stands out by having great visually appealing resumes. They are the #1 Best Resume Visualization for 2015. The ResumUp Resume templates are beautiful and they offer data visualization options as well, to really make your resume pop! In addition to good looking resumes, ResumUp also offers a Career Planning feature.

1.) How long have you been helping users build and perfect their resumes/cover letters? How many users have you helped to date?

We’re working on Resumup for more than 4 years. And now more than 300k people worldwide have used our service to create an outstanding resume, set an online profile or discover career paths.

 

2.) What features set your site apart from other resume building websites?

We also worked hard on our “career planning” feature – a tool to find out who and what you need to know to achieve your career goals. Now it’s still in beta since we tune our algorithms which build career paths based on skill development. It’s more of a B2B product now since many enterprise companies are interested in such tool to work with current employees.

 

3.) If you could share your most helpful resume tip, what would it be?

I believe that you need to understand the area you want to work in and know your potential employers so you can tune your resume and give a description of what you actually can do for such employer and where you want to go.

Resunate

Resunate’s motto is, ‘A smarter job application in seconds’, but what I found even more captivating was that they help jobseekers double their chances of getting hired! Resunate has been featured in many top online publications and uses a proprietary software platform to extract data and speed up the resume building process.
1.) How long have you been helping users build and perfect their resumes/cover letters? How many users have you helped to date?

4 Years and over 50,000 users

 

2.) What features set your site apart from other resume building websites?

– First, a parsing software extracts info from your resume and maps it to the employer’s database, called an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

– Using that info, the system automatically assigns you a score based on how well you match the job the employer is trying to fill.

– All candidates get ranked and sorted with only the top scoring candidate resumes getting viewed and called for interviews.

It’s just like searching for something on Google. In the ATS, your resume is like a website that may be all the way back on page 13 of the employer’s search results. Don’t be like the estimated 72% of resumes that NEVER get seen by human eyes.

 

3.) If you could share your most helpful resume tip, what would it be?

Use a unique resume for each application you make, ATS’s filter out by unique keywords and require a resume adjustment to optimize.

The top five resume site for your career

 

When you need to get a job, you need to have a great resume. Having a great resume is even more important if you are looking for a work from home position. When you work at home, you will have a remote interview and your resume is even more important because the employer may never physically meet you. In the 2015 Home Office Careers Employment Report, we found that hiring managers and employers have a more difficult time hiring remote workers. Having a great resume will give you a leg up against so many other candidates.

I would like to thank Stephanie Willard, Director of Marketing here at Home Office Careers, who helped in the review and selection process of the top 5 resume sites as well as her help in questioning our winners.

      Hi Zeina – Good to hear from you in Beirut. Most of the job offers posted by Home Office Careers are for U.S. residents, but we do have about 170 offers that do not require you to be a U.S. resident. As a free Basic member you can use the Search Jobs page to find these offers. Select “Job Location” and then “Allows Residency Outside The U.S.” Start there and then consider if there are offers that you can qualify for. If you want to apply to these offers, it will be time to upgrade to Premium membership.
      Best of success,
      Alan
