    Why would you endorse or advertise a online service that makes you submit all kind of private information to them, which can easily be abused for commercial purposes, if not even for phishing or spamming practices ? It’s like you say to them: “Hi there, here is a summary of my legal identity. Do with it as you please…”

    The service of the resume printout itself may be free, but you may end up paying a substantial price in the end.

    If you have to write a resume, or as we in Europe say, a curriculum vitae, there are many other good help sources online. For example you can download one of the many free templates from the online resources of Open Office, LibreOffice or even, also for free, from Microsoft’s online templates for Office.

    And if you turn to an online resume service because of a lack of imagination I suggest you first acquire some of that. (this is not directed towards the author of above article but rather in general)

    @Fayazdo–doesn’t sound like folks in Europe file taxes, or at least not using online software. Doesn’t sound like they use the Internet for any type of business transactions where personal or corporate information may be used or “abused for commercial purposes.”

    The US is so far behind in this type of thing; my aunt has never been on the Internet, 94 years old and doesn’t even know what it is; with a few clicks, I had her birthday, her husband’s birthday and death day, her step-son’s new address (for which she was looking). I didn’t have any imagination, so I didn’t know where else to go for the information, sorry.

    Crazy, yes?

    Gosh, I wonder what it says about me and others who turn to an online income tax service? No imagination? Generally, stupid in math? Generally, stupid. I mean, those services have A LOT of private information, but so does our government and the personal accountant and the bank tellers, etc.

    @ Fayazdo, @ Jarsay: hmm. I must confess that I never thought about resumes as something to be kept secret, given that their very purpose is to be given out to all and sundry. You could go on many sites such as Linkedin and do a search on resumes that their owners have made public.

    In any case, you could always substitute an email for your address. You could even create a special, job-search email. Problem solved.
