Frequently Asked Questions

Never stop asking questions.


What is JobRudder?

JobRudder is cloud software for managing your career. It helps you track your achievements at work, keeps your resume up to date and helps you prove you deserve a raise or promotion.

How Does JobRudder Work

It's easy.

  1. You enter your career achievements and experiences in the JobRudder web app.
  2. We automatically generate resumes, achievement reports, career analytics, and more.
  3. When you need it (e.g. job interviews), you review your achievements and career analytics, download tailored resumes and more.


Why do I need JobRudder?

Tracking your achievements at work is the very best thing you can do for your career. Those achievements are the raw materials for better resumes, better job interviews, and more raises and promotions. JobRudder is the only tool built to help you do track those achievements, keep your resume up to date, prepare for performance reviews and more.


Doesn't my resume take care of this this?

You are more than a resume. JobRudder provides a more nuanced and complete view of all the ways you're crushing it. And you can't search, tag, filter, analyze - you know, manage, things on your resume.


What about LinkedIn?

JobRudder and LinkedIn do different (but sometimes complementary things). JobRudder acts like a personal (and central) log of your career and comes with several other tools Linkedin doesn't provide. We're also private and ad-free :)


What if my employer has employee career software?

That's a good thing. But what happens when you change jobs? With employer provided career software, you lose your data when you change jobs. With JobRudder, your data belongs to you and moves with you no matter how many times you change jobs.


Can I try JobRudder before getting a subscription?

Yes. You can try JobRudder for free for 30 days (open the hood, kick the tires, all that). No credit card required.


How do I upgrade to a paid subscription?

Easy. You can upgrade anytime during your free trial. Go to your account settings page in the app to upgrade.


What if I don't like JobRudder?

You're in charge. You can cancel your subscription at anytime.


How safe is my stuff?

We take security extremely seriously. Our application includes many security and privacy best practices including encryption of your data in transit and at rest, password hashing (PBKDF2) and more.


Do you sell my data?

Absolutely not.


Can I get an annual subscription?

Yes. You can sign up for an annual (get one month FREE) or monthly subscription. You can switch between them anytime.
