    I'm really digging Represent, tried out the creator and I was instantly sold. The resumes it creates look really good too.

    The only gripe I have is that it won't let me use an international phone number.

      Thanks Alex! We really appreciate the kind words.

      We will definitely keep international phone numbers in mind for a future update.

    Love how if you fill out a bit, then come back to the homepage, your info is put into the demo design instead. Very clever.

    Working on the same idea right now and I had no idea this existed :( Looks great, good job.

    Super sweet on-boarding process, beautiful forms. That ADD button is really easy to miss though. I kept wondering why my experience wasn't saving as I went to the next step.

    I've been using Represent to transfer my résumé to an updated digital copy. It's super easy to use and is much more appealing than a traditional résumé.

    Love it, but WHY did you disable copy+paste functionality on here :'(

      Hey Collin,

      Copy/Paste shouldn't be disasbled, and I can't seem the reproduce the bug on my end. Mind if I ask where/what you were trying to copy and paste?

    Looks like a nice execution so far. Some suggestions:

    I think having the home page dominated by an example works well, though I found it confusing that the example changed randomly from one page load to the next. Maybe this would be a rare instance where some sort of carousel-style layout could be effective? I’d suggest using obvious manual controls to move to the next example rather than a timer, though, as each example could take a while to look through and it might be frustrating for users to have the example document change unexpectedly as they were halfway through reading it.

    I found the subtle background video at the top of the home page a neat trick but ultimately distracting.

    Being able to export in PDF and Word format seems essential. Many employers require CVs to be submitted in some common format so received documents can be scanned by automated HR software, and the nicest web site in the world isn’t going to get the candidate past the first hurdle in that situation.

    Does this give the user tips on writing their resumé in the first place?
