Individual Software Launches Windows Store App with Free Trial to Help Users Write a Professional Resume

Fully-loaded App Offers the Latest Technology for Creating Effective Resumes and Cover Letters.

Livermore, CA, November 27, 2014 --( Individual Software, a leading publisher of productivity software, announces the release of Resume Maker® - a full-featured app with a free trial now available in the Windows Store. With Resume Maker, users gain access to a variety of resources that make writing a professional resume effortless.

Hiring managers spend an average of six seconds reviewing a resume before deciding whether or not the applicant is a good fit for the position. Selecting the correct resume format, prioritizing information, and presenting accomplishments in the best possible way is vital. The new Resume Maker app helps job seekers achieve all this and more.

The streamlined design gives users two options to create a professional resume: they can import their LinkedIn® profile and convert it into a polished resume, or they can use the step-by-step guide. Either way, according to Susan Lieber Smith, Director of Marketing at Individual Software, “Resume Maker gives users a quality resume and an excellent experience, from start to finish.”

Resume Maker assists users every step of the way. The app helps them choose between chronological or functional format. It then goes on to provide expert career advice on each resume section. “There are 25 resume sections to choose from and adding or removing them is much easier than if you were working in Microsoft Word,” says Petya Manning, Marketing Specialist at Individual Software. “Job seekers have lots of control over customizing the resume to their specific needs,” adds Manning.

Users have access to over 1,000 sample resumes written by professional resume writers and thousands of resume phrases for nearly every career. Also featured is a collection of hundreds of cover letter templates and phrases.

With Resume Maker, users can publish up to twelve resumes and store them on Dropbox®, free of charge, making it easy to share resume links with their personal and professional contacts via email, Facebook®, LinkedIn®, or Twitter®.

The app features powerful job search tools. Users can identify new jobs in their search area and career field. They can customize their job search by targeting important key factors such as job title, geographic region, job boards, job type, and experience.

Resume Maker also helps job seekers get ready for interviews. It includes 25 virtual interviews and 500 frequently asked questions along with the answers, plus the rationale behind the answers.

Users can try Resume Maker at no obligation for a full day by downloading the free trial from the Windows Store. The app carries a retail price of $9.99. To request an editor's review copy, please contact or call 800-822-3522.
