[prMac.com] San Antonio, Texas - 2WayResume iPhone / iPad App uses Apple's native "copy & paste" function, geo-location and email client to simplify and optimize the resume creation and distribution process.
The user either can start fresh with a resume template or use Apple's native "copy & paste" function to go to an existing resume or LinkedIn profile, press the screen, select "copy", and return to the resume template. The user then selects "paste", and the selected content is inserted into the template. Expert career guidance and proven strategies are provided with each step in the process. The user is reminded of the critical nature of key word search for employers to narrow down the field of applicants. He is then advised to study the employer's own keywords in the employer job description or on the employer website and to select his own achievements which are the best match to specific keywords of the employer.
Since the app emphasizes tailoring a resume for each job or each job type, when the user finishes and saves the resume, the program asks the user to give this resume a title or an identifier, such as a job title or employer Job ID so the user can identify it and store it for future use. The app stores up to eight resumes.
The user then may click on "Share Now" to update his Facebook or Twitter network , then on "email" to send to employers. Apple's native email client appears with a plain text version of the resume, ready to be processed immediately into an employer's key word searchable database and with a PDF version attached, both ready for distribution. The subject line offering the plain text resume, preferred by 80% of employers or the PDF, if preferred, becomes the succinct, time saving substitute for the traditional cover letter. The user then puts in the email address of the selected employer, associate or job board and presses "send". Speed counts. 2WayResume App is based on speed, tech short cuts and social media savvy, a combination which makes it a streamlined, effective tool for job search on the go.
