Resumonk was created to make it easier for anyone to build a professional looking resume. The creators focused on the idea that a person’s resume is the most important tool they have when looking for employment or changing careers. Resumonk has made a positive impression so far with a number of mentions on blogs and websites. The application’s main appeal is its user friendly nature. Resumonk doesn’t offer many template options but it does make it extremely easy to create a functional resume.
Resume builders are available all over the web. Resumonk isn’t significantly different. The application presents users with a basic form that collects the user’s professional data and contact information. The data is automatically applied to the template the user chooses. While the application’s collection includes a few appealing resume designs, it doesn’t offer much in the way of template variety. Resumonk doesn’t provide any cutting edge features, but it does offer a modern interface and user friendly design.
The look of Resumonk may be one of the reasons some users prefer the application. There is no clutter and the entire experience feels modern and updated. The application doesn’t include many customization options, but for some industries that might not be an issue. The available resume templates are diverse, even though they are limited. A new user with no resume writing experience can easily put together a well-formatted document using Resumonk’s interface.
A new user can try Resumonk by clicking the blue “Sign Up” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The form on the next page asks for an email address and password. The user is automatically logged in after successfully submitting the form. No credit card information is required. New users are automatically given a free account. Upgrades can be made after registering.
Resumonk offers a Pro account that is about as simple as it can get. Users who would like to upgrade can pay a one-time fee of $9.99. Pro accounts can access premium templates and can import their LinkedIn profile. The one-time fee setup is much better for users because most would not be willing to pay a monthly rate for the number of features and resume templates provided by Resumonk.
Resumonk is a decent application for anyone who wants to build a simple, functional resume. The application makes resume formatting extremely easy. The user doesn’t have to have any resume writing experience and doesn’t have to worry about spacing and layout like they would with an application like Microsoft Word. The design is simple but it is also lacking in terms of features and unique resume templates.
