10Minute Resume provides free Web tools that help users write their resumes. Job seekers can receive expert advice, request a free Web page, learn how to create a polished print version of their resume, or prep for a job interview with practical career articles.
In the site’s Tips and Expert Advice section, jobseekers can get suggestions and useful tips and phrases for each resume section.
The site’s system chooses a resume layout for the jobseeker’s current situation and occupation.
The Resume Print section enables the jobseeker to develop a professionally designed print resume from several professional resume designs.
10Minute Resume is the only Web-based resume-builder we know of that enables you to view your resume on the Web, and build your own resume Web page with the click of a button. Additional tools include the ability to email (free) and fax your resume (requires a small fee) right from the 10Minute Resume site. A Resume Spell Checker is coming soon.
10Minute Resume also provides a Tracking Center that enables you to log every communication you make in your job search and retrieve by date, document name, and contact information, including company name, email address, and fax number.
Our experience with any kind of resume templates is that they require considerable polishing to get them looking really good, but sites like 10Minute Resume are a great way to get started if you’ve never created a resume before. Registration required.
