Thank you, @kwdinc for hunting us!
Hey, ProductHunt contributors!
Imagine, what if algorithms help people writing their curriculum, suggest skills and remind about tasks we've done on a previous job? That's exactly what our AI Career Builder does. No need to force yourself writing your resume or cover letter now — just insert basic data into a system and get professional personalized resume instantly, cover letter, list of job opportunities suitable for you according to your preferences and suggestions and interview/onboarding help.
We are super excited to present you our AI career builder Skillroads. The job market is so competitive today and we were driven with the desire to help job seekers in pursuing career they have been always dreaming of. Skillroads is not just a common resume builder or career builder service, our website is designated to people willing to get a full career guidance.
With some of my team-mates over the last 5 years we have already helped dozens of students and professionals in different industries with their career development. Although in 2017 we met a group of developers, working on nature language processing and algorithms able to track and predict user’s behaviour and preferences, — so we came out with an idea — why not create personalized career platform.
So we have accumulated a treasure trove of knowledge and skills we gained before and implemented the latest technologies and Artificial Intelligence to turn the daunting job search into the smooth process to take your career to the next level.
We provide a wide range of career services:
* Online resume and cover letter builder powered by AI can create an outstanding resume/cover letter within minutes.
* Imagine, not techology can write everything instead of you — just input some of you data and identify the best suitable skillset from the proposed list and let AI write everything for you!
* Our online resume checker that allow customers getting their resume reviewed for the most common resume problems and spelling errors in order to fix it, make a resume more professional and make sure you’d pass ATS
* Interview tips based on basic information about your job expectation
* Personalized list of local top job opening, listed according to your resume
That are the most significant but not the last features we’ve made for now.
Your feedback, ideas and comments are highly appreciated!
@kwdinc @maria_isaieva Do you guarantee a refund if Skillroads doesn't attract any attention from recruiters and/or industry? What's your money back guarantee?
@hadeslimbs thanks for the question! All our clients have never had any issues with job application. Obviously, only if you're applying for a relevant job according to your experience, and surely its hard to guarantee anything if if you're an engineer applying for an actor job :) Nevertheless we guarantee unlimited number of resume revision and also AI resume review to check if your resume is good enough and your application passes ATS and get's right to hiring manager. Also Skillroads guarantees to apply any fixes and changes upon your request to your application form if needed to get a desired job.
What exactly does Artificial Intelligence do?
@olesya_novik thanks for the question!
Mathematical and statistics algorithms, which stand for Artificial Intelligence mechanisms ;)
For example, our AI is focused on creation a resume that passes Applicant Tracking system with the help of scanning, analyzing and choosing the best powerful words to advance a particular resume. Although its our fist AI service we've built, our developers used to participate in Kaggle competitions and contribute to Kaggle Kernels.
Getting into details, we use predictive performance models to analyze and combine text and use two ensembles. Unfortunately its the information i could provide you.
We've been in contact for a while prior to your launch, and I'm excited to see your product live on Product Hunt. You and your team did a great job, I'm wondering how do you plan to proceed in terms of custom designs, fonts, etc?
I believe this type of product to be very useful—from both employee and employer perspective.
A few ideas that come to mind from a business point of view:
1. Have you thought of instantly matching vacancies to generated CVs?
2. Also you might consider partnering with a few recruitment agency's. They spend a lot of man-hours polishing candidate CV's—and this would save them a lot of manual labor.
3. Just one final idea, maybe it would be interesting to allow people to use AI to tweak their CV for a specific (or multiple) Vacancies. I know plenty of people who spent days rewriting the same CV for different vacancies.
Goodluck guys, keep up the hard work and this'll be a great success.
Hi @martijn_verbove, thanks for your question!
Sure, we do plan to add the option of custom design, font and all the necessary features that will make our customers feel unique and satisfed with our service.
Answering your questions:
1. Our aim is to make anyone come to Skillroads, analyze your resume or employee questionnaire, and our AI will provide suggestions: “Dude, these your skills [...]need to be improved. These tools [...] you need to learn and they will affect your career growth and let you get a better job and salary growth.
2. Right now we are in negotiation process with 3 TOP recruiting US Agencies. I believe future partnership will stress the market and influence growth for all participants.
3. We already realized matching CV to a specific vacancies. The stresss in the nearest future we are pushing on the first point. :)
@martijn_verbove @vadym_sapozhnykov good one

Hi Product Hunt Community!
Finally, Skillroads is at ProductHunt!
First, thank you for your contribution to @ProductHunt community, sharing advices and success stories has helped us a lot.
Last year we have launched AI Career service - Skillroads, designated especially for job hunters. We have implemented innovations and modern technologies to make the job application process easier. For me as an entrepreneur career service is a challenge that will open new horizons and push it to new heights.
Skillroads` main goal is to make job searching process easier for people in any industry and of any level of experience.
The history of our resume writing business goes back to 2006 when the first project appeared. While working on this project, we have gained a better understanding of the field and realized a burning need to implement innovations.
Inspired by numerous startups, we came up with an idea of a completely new breakthrough service and that’s how Skillroads AI Career Builder started.
Skillroads solves the following issues:
1) poor writing skills, which result in a bad resume
2) most job seekers don’t know the best way to structurize the information and format it into a document
3) the lack of time to conduct a great resume and to search the most relevant job opening
Considering all the described issues, we have implemented the latest technologies that help job seekers in creating professional resumes and cover letters. In addition, smart algorithms allow our clients to access personalized list of job openings. Respectively, we offer a wide range of career development services, like:
Resume and cover letter builder
LinkedIn profile editing
Resume and cover letter writing
Professional Resume Design
Personalized list of vacancies
Free Resume samples
I'd appreciate if you could checking out our product and give your feedback. Let`s shape our product together!
who else thought this was SilkRoad :D
@rickats came here to comment that 😂
@rickats well it wasn't done on purpose, hehe)) although some people even mistype our product name)
Hey Skillroads team, my congrats on the launch!
I love the idea of collecting the major applicant's problems in one solution. You're absolutely right that it takes 8-10 seconds on screening a resume by a recruiter, so you (as an applicant) have to impress your future employer.
Do you plan to add the specific knowledge base for different roles/professions? It may help a lot, as 'tech' and 'healthcare' have different must-haves to mention in the resume.
Thank you for the question, @stetsenko_me
We already have this functionality. So once you start your resume creation, system automatically suggest you skill-set, tools you might know or have used before, according to the position you've mentioned. Also Skillroads offers you to grade your skills. Moreover job seeker in this case may evaluate himself, check if he knows the tools, programs, etc, required for this position, and get a clue what he needs to improve to get better job perspectives.
Let's imagine: I’ve created a great resume but it is customized for a chosen job opening. I want to post my resume on a job board, so it has to be more general. Is it possible?
@ruslannaz thank you very much for your question! At the moment it`s only possible to create a resume tailored for a specific job openning. Currently we are working on our career builder and make it possible in the future. Also some features that help to pass an interview and build your career, are coming soon.
What other career services are you planning to implement?
@jo_kruger thanks for the question ;)
Skillroads team have some great ideas, which will help thousands of job seekers in their professional lives. For now, we can't put all cards on the table. Although most features we've planned are built to have more smooth interview, onboarding process while getting new position and also find out what you need to learn more to get best job offers. Stay tuned to be the first to know about our novel features!
This looks promising. Keep up the good work guys. I hope you guys plan on adding Linkedin integration? most of people who already have linkedin accounts would find beneficial importing their basic profile data - Prev. work experience and education instead of doing the manual input...

@anton_zubenko Thanks for your feedback!
We keep exploring the capabilities and limitation of the Linkedin API to take your AI engine to its maximum potential.
The results are just around the corner. Stay tuned.
Great job!! I request you to not please add payment at start of the resume builder as because of this lots of people tend to return back and find more free ones also no payment option to download. Hope the experience is good 😊
@ayush_chandra thank you for your feedback
thanks a lot, we we'd note this and make adjustments. Hope you've enjoyed Skillroads)
@ayush_chandra @maria_isaieva thank you for your comment! Your opinion is valuable to us and will use it to evaluate changes and make improvements in our site.
Amazing thing, guys! As someone who is multiple times employee and employer, I can’t stress enough how important CV is!
@misha_nestor Thank You!
@valentin_pivovarov thank you for your feedback!
@productpearson we hope you enjoyed it)
Unfortunately underwhelmed by this product given the attention it got on Product Hunt. The free resume analyzer points out things (only some of which I agree with), but doesn't point out specifics. It does, however, give you a promo code to hire a resume writer.
Then there is the AI-generated resume. It appears many jobs aren't in their database yet, and of the ones that are, you select generic skills such as "passionate about building new products" and "able to evaluate new technologies and solutions". Not too confident about the quality of the output (at least for US-based hiring managers).
@cbenkendorf thank you for your feedback, highly appreciated!
Honestly saying - its just beginning for us, and there is a long way ahead.
Smart Resume Review, we've built the algorithms, although at the moment working on customization of results to provide more personal feedback and of course more accurate on each resume.
As for the database, it updates real time as soon as we're getting more data from our sources to analyze and build prediction for the accurate wording, skills, tools, etc for each resume.
Stay tuned! More updates, bug fixes, are updates are coming soon ;)
Hey guys! As I can see, a resume is created automatically. If I am not ok with the structure and I want to add/remove a particular section, is it possible to change it?
@aleksander_bililovets Thank you very much! If you want to have a completely personalized resume, you have an option to edit your resume and change anyhow you want it.
@aleksander_bililovets thanks for sharing feedback. Thats efficient point, maybe we need to fix user flow for resume editing, we'd work on this.
@maria_isaieva @vadym_sapozhnykov thank you guys, hope my little feedback was helpful enough to make Skillroads even better :)
