A lot of my family ends up coming over needing me to put together or help put together a resume for them. I have no issues with helping out because I know not everyone is good at putting together resumes.
But it got to the point where I was getting tired of doing resumes so I decided to buy software that would help them put together their own resumes in no time.
Resume Writer Deluxe was $10 and I wasn’t disappointed at how well it worked. First of all it was the cheapest of the software and had top ratings. I was shocked at how some of the more expensive resume writers got bad ratings and the cheaper ones received good ones.
Resume Writer Deluxe was made by IMSI is just one of those basic resume writers. There are a couple of things that the Resume Writer Deluxe doesn’t have that all the other resume writers do. And that’s the ability to assess a job search engine, nor the ability to publish your resume up on the web. I really don’t see a big deal in not being able to access the search engine because you can easily search the web for jobs anytime. So that isn’t a huge perk, but the ability to post your resume online is another thing. I have been able to post every single resume that I’ve written online. So I find this a bit disturbing but I can’t complain because it only cost me $10.
Resume Writer Deluxe gives you a foundation in which you can stand on. If you need resume ideas, they give you over 10,000 examples. If you need resume phrases, then they give you 3,000 different types. It isn’t the easiest thing to figure out the best way to say something. But Resume Writer Deluxe helps you in this area and all you have to do is point and click.
Resume Writer Deluxe has an interview simulator. So you can practice interview questions and responses. I think this is an all around great feature because it teaches you how to conduct yourself in an interview.
Resume Writer Deluxe had its issues though. The one thing I wasn’t intrigued by was the fact that it wasn’t all that easy to use. There wasn’t organization when it came to the Resume Writer Deluxe software. The screens were bunched up on top of each other and if you needed to get from one screen to the other then you would have to move screens around. I felt like this was way too much work.
Another thing that Resume Writer Deluxe didn’t offer was cover letter examples. Not everyone knows how to write cover letters so to be able to fall on examples is a plus. Resume
Customer Service wasn’t all that great either. I ended up having to contact them trough email about a question I had about setup. By the time Resume Writer Deluxe responded back to me, I had already figured it out.
Resume Writer Deluxe isn’t bad for what I bought it for. It gets the job done. It just isn’t as enhanced as other resume writers I’ve experienced.
