It has been a while since I made a resume. A CV is not really worth a lot in the startup world but it is still a necessity when one goes out hunting for a job. There have been a lot of web products built to help people make their resumes but there isn't a name that comes straight to mind. Resumonk is one such product from India we wrote about earlier but we just chanced upon an interesting app- Super Resume Builder. It helps people make their resumes right from the mobile.
Founded by Faisal Memon, the app claims to make a users resume viral. "An average job seeker hates sitting on computer and format his resume. We help such people create their resumes. Users are finding value in Super Resume Builder as it offers a very portable way to create your resume. They can update resumes and apply to jobs while traveling, when they are not with their laptop," says Faisal.
Super resume builder has sample fill ins, which assist newbies and to give them a clear guidance of filling in their information. It has sections like personal information, education, references, skills, etc. which the user needs to fill in and the app then automatically generates a PDF which is saved on the SD card.The app has been over 250,000 installs (last 100,000 in past 3 months) on Google Play itself, is getting over 2.6 Million screen views on Android, and has been reviewed over 4500 times on android.
The app is being developed by two people based in Navi Mumbai. The back story is that the app has been incubated by Just Unfollow where Faisal works. Just Unfollow is a friend management product for Twitter and Instagram which has come to be known as one of the fastest growing consumer businesses from India. Just Unfollow has garnered close to 5 million app downloads and is quickly growing into more interesting spaces (see how they started and more).
A lot of etiquettes of a good app is reflected in Super Resume Builder, for instance, this onboarding mail:

On Super Resume Builder's front, the plan for the next six months is to hit a million downloads by end of the year. "Development for IOS is under process. We are coming on windows mobile as well soon after which we would look to raise funding and take this ahead," says Fisal.
