This tool is created in partnership with VisualCV, a well-established consumer service for facilitating the creation of resumes and cover letters.
The current Resume Builder and new VisualCV Resume Creator will both remain available in TERC for a transition period. A notification will be added in TERC to advise when the Resume Builder will be removed in order to give time for patrons to save existing resume information or import a previous resume into the new resume writing tool. Further information on timeline will be forthcoming from Gale.
A training webinar schedule is in process with more information forthcoming.
