Resume Republic - Online resume templates

Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Why should I use ResumeRepublic?

Because it’s the 21st century! Resumes are no longer just a piece of paper, they are published online. Today, resumes are in clouds.

You can create new awesome online resumes with cover letters and send them directly to employers.

You can change the appearance of your resume and promote it on all social networks.

You can also print your resume and cover letter and use them like conventional resumes when you go for a job interview.

What is the difference between online and printed resume?

Online resume is your web presence, your personal landing page and online front cover. We created these online resume templates to be unique and different, to single out yours from the crowd of other resumes. Online resumes are just for web presence and devices not for print.

A printed resume must be bold and professional to impress the employer. Printed resume is used to send to employers via email in PDF format or to carry on a job interview and personal contact with the employer.

 

Why online resume does not have the same style as the printed resume?

These are the reasons why online resumes do not have the same layout and style as printed resumes:

1. ECONOMY:

Our online resume templates have used a lot of color, they are long, wide and they are intended solely for web and computer screens. Just imagine how much color is needed for one print of your online resume.

2. AESTHETICS:

There is a certain standard to printed resume should look like. A printed resume must be corporate, simple, clear, bold and professional. To follow a standard that is required for a professional approach. Therefore, it is not professional to print a resume with lots of colors, because that will be rejected immediately by the recruiter.

3. THE MAIN PURPOSE:

Online resume is as its name says, designed for online use only, while the printed resume only intended for the press, or send via email in PDF format. Online resume templates have a completely different layout and style of the printed resume. They are designed so intentionally. That is clearlly stated on our homepage. A printed resume must be corporate, simple, clear, bold and professional. To follow a standard that is required for a professional approach. Online resume template is designed only to be online support to your printed resume. Something like a personal cover, web site or landing page and just for that, nothing more.

My Web Presence

I just created my resume, but it doesn’t show up when I search for my name on the Web. Why is that?

Your presence in search engine results is not immediate. In general, it takes two to four weeks to be well positioned in a keyword search for your name. Search engines send out “robots” that look for new sites to index in their results. While ResumeRepublic.com was built to optimize your presence in search engine results, we do not control the time required for a search engine to index your resume.

I created my resume more than a month ago, but it still doesn’t show up in search engine results. What can I do?

Your presence in search engine results is not immediate. In general, it takes two to four weeks to be well positioned in a keyword search for your name. Search engines send out ‘robots’ that look for new sites to index in their results. While Resume Republic was built to optimize your presence in search engine results, we do not control the time required for a search engine to index your resume.
Ensure that your privacy settings are configured for search engine indexing
To control your privacy settings, click on “Account Settings”, then click on “Privacy Settings”. To be visible to search engines, select:

  • ON” next to the option ” Publish resume on the web”,
  • OFF” next to the option “Protect resume with a password”
  • ON” next to the option ” Broadcast on search engines”

 Have you unpublished your resume recently?

Search engines scan the Web for additions, modifications and deletions. When you unpublish your resume, it is no longer visible to search engines. If a search engine happens to scan your resume Web site while your site is unpublished, it considers that your site no longer exists. Don’t panic. Just republish your resume. Within the next few weeks, it will be back in search engine results.

Tip: Leave your resume in the published mode — even when you are editing your Web site. If a search engine happens to scan over your resume Web site while it is unpublished, the search engine will exclude it from search results and you will lose your ranking.

Is an access code required to view your resume?

Resumes protected with access codes are not visible to search engines. From your resume, click on the “Account Settings” under the “Privacy Settings” tab and select “OFF” next to the option ” Protect resume with a password “.

I edited my resume but my changes aren’t showing up in search engine results. What should I do?

Search engine results display information stored in an index that is updated regularly. Search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) directly manage their own indexing processes. ResumeRepublic cannot intervene. When you change information that is presented in search engine results, such as the title and description of your resume, it may take up to a few weeks for the new information to be displayed in search results for your name. Please, be patient.

I want to remove my resume from Google search results. How do I do that?

Our resumes are tagged no cache. We did this so that potential employers and other visitors of your resume can not access previous versions of your resume.

Managing Free Account

How long does my free account last? Are there any hidden costs?

Duration of free account is unlimited. There are no hidden costs and you will not have to pay anything as long as you use a free account.

I just created a free account, which resume templates can I choose?

Free users are allowed to use FREE templates only. All resume templates allowed for free users are properly and clearly marked with “FREE” label on it.

Can I see how would my resume look like, If I were a premium user?

YES, absolutely. You can always choose to see how your data will look with a premium resume template, but You will not be able to apply any premium resume template on your data until you become a premium member.

How many templates I can save on my account?

Free users can save only one resume template in their list of resumes, while the number of changes on primary resume is unlimited. In this way even if You cannot save another resume in your list, You still can create unlimited resume variations, but every change You make must be saved over your primary resume.

Why is my URL contained of numbers and letters?

Custom URL is only available for premium users. URL for free users is created automatically from randomly chosen numbers and letters.

I want to upgrade to Premium, but my current resume is well positioned in search results. Am I going to lose my SEO?

Of course not! Actually, when you upgrade to Premium membership, we redirect your visitors and search engines to your new resume. Our Premium plan is a great way to improve and maintain your SEO.

In the process of creating a resume, I noticed that some options are unavailable. Why is that?

This is due to the fact that free resume templates are designed not to contain specific elements such as portfolio, services etc. These options are exclusive to premium membership.
