I probably tried every visual resume tool out there about a year ago, and at the time ResumUP was definitely the best-looking. They've released new resume templates since then, as well, so in addition to the original infographic resume shown here they also have a bunch of more conservative options and a few that really take advantage of the digital medium. This was also, of the many infographic cv tools out there, the one that made it easiest to display a non-linear career path by creatively employing the pre-defined categories.
@eliservescent Thank you! We've played around with different templates, but still infographic works the best to impress recruiters.
@eliservescent @ebarulin The website isn't working anymore. The visual maker isn't loading.

@rony_zgheib Nice. Could you send the PSD version to me as well? Thanks in advance.
Interesting product, and would make for a creative and eye-catching page 2 to a resume, but on its own is just going to frustrate HR staff who want information in a standard and easily parseable format.
@dan_e_gray Sure, the main purpose is to catch attention (since only 6 seconds spent on each resume on average). Once you've been noticed, provide details in an easy way.
@ebarulin @dan_e_gray As someone who is a "charts and graphs" person, I appreciate this! Like Dan says, however, some people aren't. Can you combine both text and graphics on the page?
@robcromer Sure, working on this. have some good ideas. There are some examples at our template's page.
Don't use this product, I just paid twice to them and they don't answer their emails, or tickets and you cannot download your resume. They also have very bad bugs in their resume builder. Don't buy it, don't even look at it, terrible product!

@rolando_castanon Yeah I think they are belly up. I was a 149.00 life time member! LOL
Nice looking. I agree with Dan Gray that this has some utility problems but as a version you hand to an interviewer or display on your personal website I can see how this could be useful.
@lynnfredricks In most of the cases candidates print their visual resumes, but online version works as well.
Looks impressive. Any chances to build in particular section or block to your static .doc resume?
@testkeis If you're building your resume in .doc format, you're doing something wrong. PDF only :D
