    That’s very cool! Writing an online resume builder was my very first job out of university, way back before there was a Web– it was a terminal based program. Amit, consider adding an ‘upload my resume for recruitment searches’ and a subscription based service for head hunters, you’ll have yourself a little business there!

      Thanks malakai! I’ll surely think about in that direction.

      Would be nice if pressing “next” would display a warning if you didn’t save your input yet. I filled in all the fields, always pressing next, and then I got an empty resumé. (The “next” button was much more prominent to me, it seems that the other button to the left of it almost didn’t register in my mind. I know it was there, but I didn’t look at it until I tried figuring out why my resumé was empty.)

        Yes. You’re correct. I’ll definitely fix this issue. Thanks!

        Hey, thanks for the submission!

        You kinda went nuts with tags, though–show would’ve been appropriate here, and maybe design. This is because web is too vague, css is not the main focus of this submission, nor is javascript or nodejs.

          Hey! Thanks for the feedback. This is first time I’m posting on Lobster. So, I’ll take care next time.

          Update: Removed unnecessary tags.

          1. Terms of Use / Disclaimer
          Consider linking the Terms of Use and any Data disclaimers prominently on the landing page. As long as the data is stored only on the user’s computer/session, and your are NOT storing a copy of the data remotely, you should be fine.

          To be on the safer side, If you intend to store a copy of the users’ inputs or share it with other parties now or in the future, make that very clear in your terms of use.

          2. Download Resume is misleading
          Upon clicking the “Download Resume” button at the end, the browser’s print dialog-box pops-up. So i could not download a soft-copy in any format like doc/pdf/image/text - which is what “Download” usually refers to.

          3. Slightly Off-topic: Some feedback on the sample resumes on the landing-page.
          The summary line says: “I’m a software developer based out of India seeking for good opportunities”

          “seeking for” sounds odd. Instead consider using “seeking” OR “looking for”.

          Also while we are at it, the “good” in “good opportunities” is ambiguous.

          Be specific - What sort of opportunities are you looking for?…
          Technically Challenging? Well-paying? Remote-work?

          Impressive web-app. All the best!

              This looks great! What about a feature where you can import your data from LinkedIn? I like keeping my LinkedIn as the “source of truth” for all my work history, skills, projects, etc, then using it to generate a resume. Open to thinking differently about this.

                Hey! Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I’m thinking of implementing this particular feature but for that I needed to setup a server for the same. Right now, it is hosted on GitHub Pages.

                I recently had to remake my CV and looked for something like this, I finally ended up using https://github.com/mszep/pandoc_resume that did perfectly the job (docker container to generate the files, CSS customization, …). I’ll definitely try this one next time, looks way easier haha!

                  Hope you’ll like it. Thanks!

                  The remove buttons for skills aren’t clickable.
