Few months ago I was trying to change my job. The process itself was pretty simple, I will go to different job sites to find job openings that fit my profile and then apply. But before actually applying, I needed a resume. I searched online for resume templates and wasn't able to find anything that looked Professional and Stylish at the same time. When you are applying along with thousand of others for the same job, it becomes necessary to stand out from the crowd.
Most of the services have some sort of restriction on the number of resumes you can create. While applying to multiple positions every day, you will usually try to customize and highlight your skills to fit the position best. And that will result in a large number of resumes, that one will need to pay for. So I needed something where the number of resumes one can have, didn't matter. And after applying for a job, I also wanted to track if someone had actually seen my resume.
Services that I did find, were either too expensive or charged monthly. Job search is not something that you would want to pay for every month. Usually, you start looking for a job and after few months when you get the job, you don't need to bother about the resume for some time. So the best service would be the one, that will charge reasonably one time and then that should be it.
Since I couldn't find anything that was even close to what I needed, I decided to create it myself and the result is HipCV.
