Thanks to the current economic crisis, many people are polishing their resumes--or building them from scratch. But if you're like most people, creating a resume might not be your strong suit. That's where Resume Builder comes in. It makes it a breeze to create a well-written, good-looking resume in a variety of formats, so that you can mail it out on paper or e-mail, post it on the Web, or use it in any way you see fit.

Resume Builder uses wizards to create your resume for you. For example, you start off by choosing what type of resume you want to create: one based on chronology, the type of job you're looking for, or for a specific job. From there, you choose your job level (from student through executive), and answer a series of questions. After that, you enter an executive summary, your job history, awards and recognitions, and so on.

You then see a preview of your resume, and can make any changes, as well as altering the layout by choosing different fonts, colors, the date format, header style, and more. Then you're done, and ready to send out your resume. You can create it in a variety of formats, including Word .doc format and HTML.

Resume Builder does more than just create your resume. It also includes a contact organizer to keep track of people you're in touch with when looking for a job, and includes sample cover letters as well.
