Face it: we all hate writing up a new résumé. Whether you’ve had 2.5 million different jobs or have stayed in the same position for the past 45 years, it’s somehow incredibly frustrating to put down your skills and experience on a piece of paper and get it looking halfway decent. Perhaps it’s because we’re shy to list what we’ve done, or we’re worried about what potential employers will think. Either way, writing a résumé ranks up there with filing taxes in the list of the world’s most hated jobs.
It doesn’t have to be that hard, though. Resume.io is a brand new web app that lets you create a nicely designed résumé in seconds. In fact, if you’ve already got a filled-out LinkedIn profile, you might be able to get a polished résumé without doing anything more than signing in. In today’s economy, it’s always good to have a current résumé, and now there’s a way to do it without wasting your afternoon.
Those who have searched for a job will know how tough it is to get the right one, if you can find one at all. You will have to be able to market yourself to the prospective employer, and customizing your skills and appealing to different corporate environments can be grueling at best. But even before you can get a face time with the bossman, there is a major hurdle you will have to get across – creating a resume.
Resumes get you a seat at the table, and are your first chance to make an impression on a potential employer (or at least their HR department). It isn’t a breeze to create a decent looking one, though, let alone an impressive one. There will always be a vital detail that has gone missing or hasn’t been highlighted prominently, and it’s so easy for your resume to look like just another plain vanilla piece of paper.

We’ve had a lot of coverage on self-promotion of late. Web 2.0 seems focused on just this — whether it’s displaying your work with an app like Carbonmade, publishing your bio on Magntize, or broadcasting your witticisms on Twitter, the modern web seems wholly geared to let others know who you are.
And with so many ways to promote your work and your business, it can be hard to focus your efforts. Let us help by rounding up the top applications for displaying what it is that you do — your work.
Ever since Tim van Damme created a one page bio all about himself, similar sites have popped up all over. Along with his killer design, Tim listed his services and all his main social contact information. What wasn’t to like?
Not long after this trend was adopted by some great designers, web apps started popping up all over that offered a similar product to us mortals who can’t tell one end of Photoshop from the other. But none delivered an end product close to the quality of what the top designers were creating.
Until now that is.
