1. What is Shri Resume?
Shri Resume is a free online service that gives you tools to create a beautiful, professionally formatted resume, absolutely free, including free resume downloads in both MS Word (DOC) and PDF formats for all standard resume sections – allowing you to quickly produce a polished resume that helps you better compete in the job market in mother India. For people who want more, Shri Resume offers 120-DAY Membership Plans that are less than what other resume services charge for just one month of service! Shri Resume also offers professional editing and writing services. Click here to see all of our plans and services.
2. Why does Shri Resume do so much for free and charge so little for other services?
Because the founders of Shri Resume were once also freshers and remember what it was like to be unemployed, have little or no money – and be burdened with college debt and family loans. Shri also believes that an improperly formatted resume shouldn't get in the way of realizing your dreams – or your family's sacrifice. We know how difficult life can be and therefore desire to contribute to the building of mother India by offering a service that is needed by so many of our people.

  • International Payments and PayPal
    There is an additional USD $0.75 cents for payment processing. This is due to two factors: (1) Our International merchant payment processor charges Shri Resume fees in USD (US Dollars) where we provide services in Indian Rupees (INR/RS) and; (2) Unlike other competing resume services, we keep our plans very low cost and this makes it impossible for us to absorb the USD (US Dollars) fees when we price our services in INR/RS (Indian Rupees). Shri says sorry and hopes that you understand.
