Résumé Fabricator

Sorry, no, I won’t fabricate or write your resume for you (although I run a course on resume and proposal writing, so you could sign up for that!)

“ReFab” is an application that learns from you exactly how you would like to re-package resumes.

If you work for a contract agency and receives resumes from candidates, especially if you spend hours each month doing the old cut-and-paste, then ReFab is for you.

ReFab allows you to RE FABricate resumes automatically or manually

1. Automatically parse and rebuild a resume section by section, leaving unresolved material at the head of the document for manual intervention.

2. Manually parse and rebuild a resume section by section, leaving unresolved material at the head of the document for manual intervention.

3. Automatically apply a corporate style to each rebuilt paragraph, branding the resume as one of your organizations.

The main goal of this tool is to be easy to use and to reduce the time staff spend in cut-and-paste operations.

The long-lasting value is the impression of consistent standards that the branded resumes make on your clients.

There are many other resume programs out there, but most of them try to provide a complete office environment instead of focusing on a measurable ROI.
