The Good

  • Helpful Information and Tips
  • Free for Students and Library Users

Helpful Information and Tips

The site offers a wide range of blog articles focused on what to do and what not to do on a resume. For many users, just knowing what to put on their resume is a challenge, so the fact that the site offers a variety of sample resumes from multiple industries and job types is beneficial.

Free for Students and Library Users

Got Resume Builder allows students and library users a free upgrade to its premium resume builder account. A premium account permits users to add cover letters and follow up letters. 

It’s easy for students to request access to the premium resume builder account — all users have to do is fill out a form that requires the user’s name, email, student ID number, school name, school website, their start year, and expected graduation date. 

Library users will enter much of the same information except they’ll need to provide a library card number, the name of the library, and the library’s website. 

Users will then submit their request; however, Got Resume Builder does not provide any information on how long users will have to wait until their request is approved or denied — leaving users to wonder if they need to wait 24 hours or if they will be approved/denied instantly. It would be useful for users to know the timeline of the process.

The Bad

  • Bare Bones Site
  • General Public Users Pay for Premium Features

Bare Bones Site

One thing that might turn users away from using the site is the fact that it feels a bit basic and out of date. Signing up for an account is simple, and once logged in, users will be taken to the main resume builder page. Users can then manually enter all their personal and work information. 

Many other resume builders offer features that allow users to select individual skills and add them to their resume all at once, Got Resume Builder does not. Users have to manually enter all their skills, experience, and other relevant information.

General Public Users Pay for Premium Features

While the resume builder is free for students and library users, the general public will have to pay $5.98 per month if they want access to any of the premium features. Users who upgrade will receive instant access to the following features:

  • Cover Letter and Follow Up Letter Builder
  • More Download Formats — download resume in PDF/Word Doc formats
  • Unlimited Versions of Resume — create unlimited versions of resume; ability to tailor a resume to specific positions and save it for further use
  • Share Resume Online — get an instant resume website
  • Lifetime Resume Storage

The Bottom Line

Got Resume Builder is a no-frills resume builder site that is free to students and library users. However, the site feels a bit out of date and requires the general public to pay $5.98 per month to gain access to its premium features — which includes the ability to download their resume in PDF and Word Doc formats. Got Resume Builder may be a good option for those looking for a simple resume builder, but not for those who need more advanced features.

I used this service for the first time last year and can't believe I never heard of it before! The templates are wonderful, and I'm happy that the service keeps my information stored privately.
