Resunate bills itself as a “resume builder on steroids.” This is a pretty accurate description because of the many features included with the application. Users can collect all of their work history, skills and experience information in one online location so it remains private (until the user wants someone to see it). Users can source information from old resumes as well as their LinkedIn profile. Resunate includes a number of writing guides, tips and other information resources created by professional resume writers. The site also boasts a collection of templates created by career coaches and employers. An automatic resume focusing tool utilizes Semantic Intelligence to ensure that the user’s best skills for a job are put forth without anything that isn’t relevant. Resumes can be downloaded as PDFs from any device with internet access. Users can manage unlimited resumes on Resunate.Show more screenshots »
Resunate was created by Careerimp, Inc in 2011. The team at Careerimp wanted to make it “easy to be the easy hire.” The team focuses on creating user friendly tools that come with practical features that job seekers can use and no unnecessary fluff. The application includes a variety of tools that let users create an original resume that will stand out without deviating away from proper business practices. Many job seekers have furthered their employment search with a Resunate resume.
Resunate includes a number of unique tools that are not often found with other resume builders. The application incorporates a highly intelligent focusing tool that reviews the user’s skills and picks those that are best suited to a specific job opening. The user’s resume always showcases the skills that the individual employer is seeking rather than throwing everything at the recruiter or business owner (which can sometimes cause the important details to be overlooked).
Resunate combines subtle hints of bright colors to dress up its clean interface. The interface is very well organized so users can easily find specific portions of their resume to add information or make changes. Smooth sliding buttons and menus enhance the overall experience. The templates available are very practical and do not deviate into the artistic or extremely creative like some recent resume builders seem to do. Resunate allows users to quickly create an accurate, attractive and functional resume for an industry.
A new user can create a Resunate account by filling out the short form found along the right hand side of the homepage. The form asks for a name, email address and password. After clicking the pink button below the form, the user is automatically logged in to their new account dashboard. The user can begin adding work experience, education and other basic resume details. Users can also link their LinkedIn profile after logging in.
New users are automatically given access to a free membership. The free account comes with the ability to create unlimited resumes and access to basic features. Users have the option of upgrading after logging in. The upgraded account includes access to the site’s advanced features. A one month subscription costs $14.95 while a six month is available for $39.95. A one year subscription is also offered and costs $59.95. Upgraded users are given access to the site’s patented advanced features that provide valuable insight and feedback on resumes.
Resunate is a good option for user who are serious about finding a new job. The application is very easy to use however it comes with a price. Unlike some online resume building tools, Resunate focuses on very practical (sometimes utilitarian) resume styles that allow the user to create resumes appropriate for less artistic industries. The application also offers some cutting edge features to improve the information presented on the user’s resume.
