You will be sent to the membership sign-up page where you can create a user name and password of your choosing. You are not required to join, you can create and edit you resume without joining, but the program becomes much more feature rich if you do.

    Yes, the activation email can be re-sent, go to the Activation page and enter your user name, password and another email address from another domain, like Gmail or Yahoo. Some of our users have been experiencing a problem with their email services blocking emails sent by our server. Some email services like AT&T, Bellsouth or Sbcglobal for example mistakenly block our emails. Use a different email address like Yahoo or Gmail since you didn't receive the email using your original address.
  3. I can't login to my account.
    If you can't login and are getting an Access Denied message make sure you already activated your account. Be sure that you have cookies enabled, we use a cookies to log you in. Be sure you are using the EXACT username and password, that you are using the proper case, meaning upper case or lower case that you used when you joined. If you are not sure that you are using the correct username and/or password go to the re-send page and have your login information re-sent to the email address you entered on your resume. If you are sure you are entering the correct username and password, but still can't login close your browser to end your current session. Open a new browser window, go to the login page and try it again.

    If after that it still doesn't work contact us for support. Make sure you send your request from the email address you have listed on your resume. We ask this so we can verify your identity. In your support request state the problem you are having. We use the email address you entered on your resume to locate you in the database.

    After finishing your resume go to the Preview page, there you will press the "Export Resume" button to download your finished resume and the "Save Edit File" button so you can download it to edit your resume in the future.
  5. How can I edit my resume if I don't join?
    If you downloaded the resume edit file (resume-edit-fileXX-XX-XX.htm) then all you need to do is double-click on it and it will bring you to the edit page with all of your information pre-loaded into the program. If you didn't download the resume edit file then you will have to manually re-create your resume, we do not store any of your information unless you give us permission to do so by joining.

  9. Will my personal info be seen by everyone if I make my resume public?
    Some of it, when your resume is public your street address, telephone number and cell phone number are not displayed. Your email address is shown, but in an obscured manner so employers may still contact you. Obviously the reason to post your resume online is to show your skills to potential employers so some of it has to be shown. We feel what is shown is the minimum necessary to get you a job. Of course it is your choice to make it public or private, this choice is made by you in your account on the "Edit Profile" page. Members are NOT required to post in the directory, this optional service is provided to help members that wish to take advantage of this option.
  10. Where do I change the email address for my user account?
    The email address that you used on your resume is also used for your member's account to send yourself your resume or remind you of your password. To change your user account email address simply change the email address on your resume within the creator program in the Personal Info section.
  11. What does The PCman do with the information I enter?
    It is only used to produce your resume, it is not used in any other manner. For non-members none of it is stored that is why if you don't download your resume or edit file your information is gone. For members your information is stored in our database, it is only accessed by this program and then only accessed:
      a. By you when you login to your account.
      b. By the directory if you made your resume public.
      c. By us if you ask us for account support.
      d. System updates and maintenance.
    You can view our privacy policy for more information.
  12. What's the catch why does The PCman provide this program for free?
    There is no catch, The PCman wants to give back to the web community. Is This Free?
  13. The Last Resort
    If you tried using these help suggestions and you still haven't resolved your problem contact us for support. We do offer this service for free so if you could do us the courtesy of trying these measures first before you contact us we would appreciate it. 99% of the time these suggestions will solve your problem so we normally refer people to this page first so you might as well skip a step and try these measures first.

When you’re looking for a job, you don’t have a lot of chances to catch the interest of a potential employer. After the cover letter, the curriculum vitae (CV) or resume is one of the first documents recruiters see. To keep them interested in you, this document should highlight your strengths, be easy to scan, yet look unique and interesting.

You may wonder what the difference is between a CV and a resume? The main difference is the length. A resume is a one or two page summary of your education, skills, and experiences. A CV covers more details and is primarily used when applying for jobs in academia, education, science, and research.


A great way to quickly compile a resume and not forget about any details are online tools. This article covers the top 3 websites to create a CV or build a free resume online.

1. [NO LONGER WORKS] CeeVee

Don’t be misled by the name. As I said, the main difference between a CV and a resume is the length. So simply limit yourself to the essential details and this CV builder will create a document that qualifies as a resume.

CeeVee essentially works like editing an online profile. You’re not guided through the process step-by-step, you can fill in the information in any order you please. To customize your document, you can add sections to your resume, remove existing sections, and add as many entries to each section as you like. You can also choose from three different themes, which will affect both the display on the website, as well as the output document.

The resulting CV or resume can be shared online, downloaded as a PDF, or you can print it.

2. Free Resume Creator

This tool isn’t as pretty as CeeVee, but definitely a more advanced way to build a free resume online. Another advantage is that you don’t have to sign up to use it.

You start by selecting your desired resume style. In the next steps you fill in your personal information, education, employment, and any additional information. Before completing the document, you can choose font styles and colors.

The document can be printed or downloaded as PDF, HTML, or plain text. If you would like to save the document online to come back and edit it later, you will have to sign up.

The PCman Website also provides online services to create a cover letter and reference page.

3. Advice Resources CV Builder

This CV or resume builder leaves you with two options. You can either view a list of templates and download any you like or take the step-by-step builder route. Neither requires you to sign up, but to save your CV online, you have to create an account. However, this can wait until you have seen the result.

Building your CV is done in 12 steps. The tool polls for your name, contact details, motivation, work experience, skills, education, additional qualifications, personal interests, referees, and finally your preferred layout. You can then download and check the result as a .rtf document and eventually go back and edit your CV.

As the screenshot above reveals, Advice Resources provide additional material to prepare yourself before building your CV. You can build your job seeking skills, your CV confidence, and your CV knowledge.

Before you send a resume to a potential employer, make sure the service you used to build your resume works as expected and your document is thoroughly formatted and does not contain spelling errors.
