Change is Coming!

We all know change is inevitable, right? Well, after much thought and consideration, and nearly 30 years of improving resumes for people across the globe, Peterson’s has decided to wind down our interests in ResumeEdge. While the service will be temporarily unavailable to new users, there’s a new strategy in the works, and we hope to introduce a new version shortly – please check back soon for more information.

If you just signed up for ResumeEdge, don’t worry, we’ve got your back and will continue to provide you with our services through March 31st. We know that many of you have come to rely on ResumeEdge, and we want to thank you all for your trust in our product, and encourage you to come back for more information on how to access the new product.

Thank you again, and we’ll see you soon!
