JobTabs Free Resume Builder is free. In fact, the JobTabs Free Resume Builder was created with the purpose being free as the very first design requirement. How so?
We are the authors of JobTabs Job Search & Resume Builder commonly known as JobTabs. JobTabs is arguably the most powerful end-to-end job search tool in the world. When people trial JobTabs and then uninstall it, we invite them to comment on what we could have done to make it better. The most common request we received was for a resume builder. We were baffled. We saw so many sites professing to have “free resume builders”. Why should we create a resume builder when they can just use one of the many free resume builders out there? It is easy to import resumes of any type into JobTabs, so what was the problem?
Finally, we decided to see what short-coming all of these free resume builders had that turned so many people away. To our shock and dismay, we discovered that none of the free resume builders were free! They would invite you to fill in your contact information, work experience, education and everything else under the sun not to mention any other information they could get from you such as industry, location, professional level, etc. They would compile the resume into a template and then show it to you. Okay, . . . . but when we would try to save the resume to our hard drive, email it, or anything other than just look at it we were denied. We couldn’t even copy the contents of the resume – we built – to the clipboard! Unless, of course, we paid them some money. These people profess to offer job seekers a free resume builder? We were appalled.
What was equally surprising is the number of sites that shared the same business model. They all offered free resumes, but wouldn’t allow you to do a single thing with it unless you paid them some money. Egads. This is bait-and-switch in its most obvious form. If you are offered a free resume builder, why shouldn’t you at least get a resume after you’ve built it?!
We were exasperated. And to have a bait-and-switch plan not on the jet-set, high-living crowd, but the segment of the population that was looking for a job. The nerve.
Welcome to a genuinely free resume builder. For real.
