JobSpice was founded by Andrew McCollum and Dane Hurtubise. The application was intended to make it much easier to create a stylish, fitting resume. Users would be given access to templates as well as resources and information on creating an effective resume. Today many users visit JobSpice to create their resumes.
The JobSpice features list may seem short, but the application actually has numerous benefits to its users. A resume can be created in a matter of minutes. JobSpice provides both free and premium template options so users can choose whichever works for them. The application can also convert resumes to .doc and.pdf files so the user can save both or go with one over the other. JobSpice offers another valuable perk to its users: the ability to save the resume online. The application will host the resume so the user can access it from anywhere.
The JobSpice website invites users with a professional, yet subtly colorful design. The homepage features light grey ads the primary color with a refreshing, orange header bar and images of example resumes. The stylish JobSpice logo is featured at the center of the header, complete with an elegant flourish. The resume editing and creation area is kept very simple, with basic commands such as undo, redo, save and print at the top and three tabs just below to access the compose, design and preview areas. The compose area is set up similar to an outline, which makes it much easier for the user to focus on content rather than the look of their resume. Moving to the design tab gives the user access to templates where they can focus their efforts on appearance.
New users can sign up for JobSpice accounts by clicking the light orange “Sign Up” button found in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The large registration form asks for only a few pieces of information, including the user’s email address and a password. After entering the information and clicking the “Sign Up for Free” button just below the form, the user is taken to the resume creation and editing area. A small pop up box invites the user to a 15 second tutorial. This can be skipped if the user prefers. A message at the top of the page advises the user that they must check their email inbox for a confirmation message which must be accessed to fully complete registration.
