The Good

  • Customizable
  • Resume Almost Writes Itself
  • Help with Cover Letter and Website Too
  • Free for Students

Customizable

Kickresume is very customizable. You can choose the font, date style, colors, and template. If you don’t like a section that’s auto-added, you can delete it and add a different one. The resume templates are available in several languages. Though you’re building from templates, you can make the resume look like yours.

Resume Almost Writes Itself

Kickresume provides resume writing help. When you put in your job title, it will match that title and industry with phrases you could put on your resume that likely match experience that you’ve had. This helps you avoid writer’s block and know how to phase your job experience in the best light. Though not all of these phrases will be applicable, it’s an incredible tool. If you’d like more writing help, Kickresume offers grammar correction (by real human editors) for $29.

Help with Cover Letter and Website Too

Kickresume also has templates for creating cover letters. The cover letter templates match the resume templates so you can have a matching set while applying for jobs. Like the resume builder, the cover letter builder has pre-written phrases that you can add in based on your job title or industry.

Kickresume can also create you a free website version of your resume. This can include your picture, contact information, and each section of your resume as a separate tab. It creates the website with one click after you’ve already input your resume information. This looks classy and is a great personalized link to put on your business card. However, this website cannot act as a portfolio or contain multimedia work.

Free for Students

Kickresume’s premium version is free for students and teachers. This is a great feature, especially for college students looking for internships or first jobs. The premium version includes the following:

  • Over 30 resume templates
  • Over 20 cover letter templates
  • One-click personal websites
  • Unlimited entries and categories on your resume
  • Full customization and icons
  • Unlimited number of resumes and cover letters
  • Over 20,000 pre-written phrases
  • Real resume examples to look at
  • Multiple languages
  • Email and live chat support

If you’re not a student, here’s what the premium version will cost you:

  • $19 for one month
  • $36 for three months (that’s $12 per month). This tier also includes the option to give a friend one free month of Kickresume premium.
  • $96 a year (that’s $8 per month). This tier also includes one free proofreading and the option to give five friends one free month of Kickresume premium.

The Bad

  • Limited Free Version

Limited Free Version

Though Kickresume offers a free version, it is very limited. The free version only includes four basic resume templates and two cover letter templates. The free version doesn’t allow for very much customization and doesn’t include a personalized resume website. If you want to use Kickresume’s nice tools, you’ll have to pay for them.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a good free resume builder, this isn’t the one for you (unless you’re a student). However, if you’re willing to pay for your resume builder, you get quite the bang for your buck. Not many resume builders help you write your resume, and hardly any build you a resume website. Kickresume is a great option.
