ResumeRepublic – Put Your Best Foot Forward

ResumeRepublic is a web-based application that job seekers can use to create stylish, professional looking resumes online. ResumeRepublic generates responsive resumes that look great on any device and can be easily edited without any prior knowledge of programming or design standards.

Take your existing resume up a notch by signing up for ResumeRepublic and browsing through the available templates. Templates are broken down into premium and free groups, and most include room for basic information like name, work experience, career objectives, and education. You can even add a photo or change the color options to give your resume a completely custom look. Templates come with integrated QR codes, which are generated automatically based on the contact information included on your resume. ResumeRepublic offers resume SEO features, along with a real-time statistics module that shows how many people have viewed, downloaded, and printed your resume.

In addition to looking great on desktop, smartphone, and tablet devices, ResumeRepublic’s premium resumes can also be adjusted for printing on traditional printers. Printed resumes may look slightly different from online resumes, depending on whether they’re printed on Letter or A4, however ResumeRepublic guarantees that its designs can be easily adjusted for printing in CMYK.
