What is the most important aspect of an online resume builder – aside from crystal clear, cost-friendly pricing plans? A logical interface with many templates, customizable sections, hints & tips and pre-written phrases is a good start. And this article’s subjects, ResumeBuilder.org and Super-Resume, both have all of the above features. In fact, the differences are rather insignificant which only show in the available – albeit hidden – pricing plans, the option you have to get your resumes/cover letters, the number of templates, and the customer support you get for your subscription.
So which one would it be: ResumeBuilder.org with its perfect dashboard, Web Resume option and three pricing plans. Or Super-Resume featuring a sample search bar, document upload option, more templates and straightforward pricing?

This online resume builder has one of the best dashboards of the market, which can contain as many resumes and cover letters as you want. ResumeBuilder.org‘s editors were also developed by taking into consideration user-friendliness: you have 8 professional looking templates, 33 sections you can rename and rearrange in any way possible, pitch perfect hints & tips with pre-written phrases, and plenty of sample letters you can modify based on your own taste. One of your resumes can be turned into a Web Resume which you can share with others without downloading or printing it. Speaking of these options; you can download documents in PDF, or share, email and print them. As a user you get customer support in the form of a contact module, a how-to video about resume writing, step-by-step guides, keyword tips, job application advices and resume examples.
ResumeBuilder.org is available in three (hidden) pricing plans, but none of them are free. However, first time users get a 40% discount, meaning that if you choose the 6-month plan instead of the 3-month or monthly subscription, you only have to pay $2.99 per month. Furthermore, unsatisfied customers can get a full refund using the 48-hour money back guarantee.
Super-Resume, which cannot create cover letters, has a very logical layout with which you can create unlimited resumes, either from scratch or by uploading editable ones. You also have the option to search for sample resumes which you can favorite or save and edit the way you wish. After you have chosen one of the 12 templates, your resume can contain 4 fixed sections to which you can add 16 other sections as many times as you want and fill them up with even pre-written phrases. Although font colors cannot be changed, you can modify the font and paper size, the margins and the spacing. When your resume is ready you can print or download it in DOC, PDF or web page format.
Super-Resume’s pricing policy is very confusing as you have to pay $2.50 for the unlimited version – meaning you can get your resumes – every 10 days, which you learn about after registration. Furthermore, the customer support is not that great: although your emails and support tickets are replied within 1 business day, you only get access to the templates, the resume examples and a few articles about resume writing and the software.
We don’t envy you when it comes to choosing between these two resume builders: even though they are very similar to each other, both of them have different pros. ResumeBuilder.org is a very user-friendly solution with a logical resume editor, the option to create cover letters, various arrangement options and the Web Resume feature. Furthermore, you can email or share your documents, get access to decent customer support and as a first-time user you get an up to 40% discount on three pricing plans. Super-Resume is only a resume editor, but a good one as you can upload existing documents, search resume samples and use them as a basis, choose from 12 templates, add pre-written phrases to the customizable sections, and set the layout of your documents. And for a total price of $2.50, which unblocks all features for 10 days, you get quick support from the staff as well.
