      what's the end goal here? Resumes are interesting when you are entry-mid level, but job hunting becomes different the higher you go.
      Also, if you are seeing resumes, are you seeing where they are applying to?

        @shanac I have found that format isn't as important as other things involved in getting a job. At this point, I'm trying to find a bigger problem that this market has...

          @tim_aton if you want to find out a bigger problem that that market has, speak with people in that market. They will tell you what is happening and where they would like to have further assistance. We can only provide an outside opinion but that won't be worth anything because we are not your target market.

    @tim_aton nice business you got going there man. My friend's design agency and I were planning to create a similar solution but never got around to implementing it because of other client works.

    Our core audience would have been students at colleges and universities for the following reasons
    1)Employers wants students to be creative hence the infographic resume will appeal to both parties.
    2)The density of student population in campuses facilitate word of mouth.
    3)With the pricing being low, the volume needs to be high to make the business profitable in the long term. The student volume will make up for the low pricing strategy.
    4)Partnerships with student unions, societies and student affiliated programs will enable business promotion even further.

    Students want jobs but are generally lazy to browse through job posts and apply. Try integrating the following solution to increase your product offering. The user tells their ideal job like working in a bar etc. You search through job sites to hunt down job matches, email the links to the user. Make a basic excel template the user can use to keep track of their job hunting. The Excel would display job link, when the user applied, expected call date from employer, progress stage etc.

    Happy to help you more in whatever way possible. Feel to tweet me at https://twitter.com/KeeranRavee

      @keeran That's a good idea. Are you saying that i would find relevant jobs and apply for them or give them a spreadsheet of jobs and have those forms there for them to fill in?

        Just send them an email with all the relevant job links. Possibly charge them extra if they want you to fill out all their details and apply.
