    Hey,

    I just finished building a website that helps users create a resume. I need testers to help me and tell me what they like/dont like about the site/ tell me if they find any bugs.

    I would like to get about 10 people to go through my site and take a look. I will pay $1 for the signup after you make a full resume, and I will pay another $1 for any errors you can find. ($1 each error)

    Please pm/post here if you would be willing to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not looking for real testers here, just looking for some people to go through the first draft of the website. Once I am happy with this draft I will be having a security company going through it to find holes, and I will be setting up more testing, but for a first look through I dont want to spend too much... And again.. someone could come up with a huge list of bugs and make quite a bit of cash.

    Besides the fact that I don't like the design, whats the point to sign up to make a resume when there are lots of free resume websites?!

    The point of this is to have resume(s) saved for future use online where you can easily go view/modify/print them from any pc/phone/tablet.

    Thanks for the comment on the design, again, this is a first draft, so It will be re-worked, I am trying to focus on the functionality at this point.

    Had a look at your site.

    First error I saw was the privacy policy page is blank.

    Please donate my $1 to the main animal or children's charity in your country.

    Seriously though, your site isn't the worst I have ever seen but in my opinion could do with more work.

    For starter's you haven't provided a clear reason for people to sign up.
    Eg What is the site purpose ?
    Is it just to create and store CV's or will you be providing other services ?
    At the moment I don't think it is compelling or attractive enough for people to be inclined to sign up.
    Please take this as constructive criticism and I wish you all the best with it.
    Good Luck

    Also putting your tagline into google "build a free resume online" brought up a couple of results that WOULD make me think of signing up with them if I was in the market for such a service.

    You said "I need testers to help me and tell me what they like/dont like about the site" so I gave you my opinion. I've researched a bit on this matter and there are already tools that can do much more than what you're trying to do, I don't think the idea has enough potential to be profitable but ofc, I may be wrong. I hope you did your research and thats not the only feature your site will have. Don't take me wrong, don't want to drag you down or something, I just know how it feels to waste time and money on the wrong idea.
    Wish you luck!

    Thanks for all the input guys,

    Right now I am seeing a GTFO to the design. I agree it is very basic/does not try and encourage people to sign up. I will be working with a designer to make it look nice and compelling soon.

    Thanks for the heads up about he Privacy Policy page, next time I am at a McD's I will toss a loony into the collection pot.

    I plan to have more then just the resume builder, but every site needs to start somewhere. Thanks for the criticism. I am not here for an ego boost. I am here to find out what can improve the site. Don't worry about my ego... Rather have a site people want to join then a site that makes me feel good ;)

    Under the privacy policy, there's a few spelling errors.
    privet -> private
    shearing -> sharing
    :)
