About RezScore

RezScore was founded during the recession to help job seekers. Our mission is to harness the power of big data to the benefit of job seekers.

We've graded millions of resumes throughout this time, and we're constantly using this data to improve our algorithms. We're always improving our algorithm as the field of data science advances. We believe such breakthroughs should belong to the average job seeker.

We believe strongly in providing our baseline resume grader for free to job seekers. Job hunting is already stressful enough, we're committed to making the process less stressful.

The percentage of users who purchase our paid services (API integration and resume writing) allow us to keep our baseline grader free. We only offer paid services when they meet our high quality standards and stand by these with money-back guarantees.

We're proud to be fully independent. Accepting investor money would have forced us to dilute these promises. Instead, we're proud to be privately owned and operated..

Sean Weinberg

Sean Weinberg was the Managing Partner and founder of Freedom Resumes. Sean is passionate about networking, writing, entrepreneurship, Web 2.0 (are we at 3.0 yet?) and career coaching (and, of course, Yankees baseball).

Sean started Freedom Resumes in 2009 because he saw the need for a different kind of career service. He was a recruiter and director of business development at AC Lion at the time (a top-notch recruiting firm) and he enjoyed the job, but he saw the opportunity to do something new and different, so he took it.

People are tired of feeling that job-hunting is a meat market. Tired of rejection by automated email. Tired of recruiters who don't listen, hiring managers who don't care, and resumes that get them nowhere. Sean and Gerrit started RezScore out of a mutual frustration with the poor state of an overwhelming number of resumes the two had come across and from hearing the direct complaints of both employers and job hunters alike.

Sean listens to his clients and does his best to see them to success, and is glad that every day he makes a positive impact. Sean hopes you'll consider dropping him a line at anytime about anything. From effective LinkedIn strategies to great bars in NYC, he's happy to chat, and the talk is free.
