Our first thought about Resume.io was how much we liked its upfront pricing information, which is something not all sites provide. While transparency about pricing is a plus, upon closer inspection, the pricing model is a little awkward.
Instead of paying for a completed resume file, the user pays for a time-based subscription service. So if you use the service and find a job immediately, you’ll only pay $2.95 for a seven-day trial. If it takes you a little longer to find a job, you have to keep on paying. Access for six-months or 12-months cost incrementally more.
We’d also prefer a site that allows you to create and keep your own resume document. This site allows a limited number of downloads based on your payment type. And, quitting isn’t east. Iif you decide the product isn’t for you, you’ll need to take several steps to cancel your plan.
Overall, the site is easy to use, but the resume templates are very basic and the site doesn’t offer much in terms of writing examples or guidance.
