ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
This program is shareware. It was written with great care and took an
enormous amount of time. That means you should register if you use it.
If you've tried much shareware, you'll have to agree that Resume
Professional is a cut above most others. It was written in C and
Assembly and every effort was made to give you to best program
possible. If you register you'll not only guarantee high-quality
shareware in the future, but you'll get two extra programs: Contact
Tracker, a program that tracks correspondance and phone calls; and
The Electronic Resume Maker, a program that creates disk based
Resume Professional will run on any system that has at least 256K of
available RAM. A graphics card or color monitor are not necessary.
If you want to print your resume then you'll need a printer.

Resume Professional 2.0 and the Bonus Programs
The Resume Professional bonus programs pack a powerful punch if you are trying
to find a job, make an important contact, or climb the ladder of success.
Resume Professional 2.0
Resume Professional 2.0 is an enhanced version of the shareware version.
Contact Tracker is an easy-to-use program that keeps track of your contacts.
It alerts you when you need to make calls and send correspondance, keeps a
log of phone numbers and addresses, and even prints letters, envelopes, and
You can install this program as memory resident so that it will pop up with
a single keypress. That way you will always be prepared to update the
database even if you are running another program when that important call comes
in. And if you want, Contact Tracker will even dial phone numbers for you.
The Electronic Resume Maker
When a paper resume just will not do, try an electronic one. The Electronic
Resume Maker gives you a powerful editor program and a flexible presentation
program that makes it a snap to create professional and interactive presentations.
Use this high tech tool to advance past the others.
You will be able to present yourself with colorful screens and take advantage of
a wide variety of special effects. You can call up a menu so that viewers can
see what they are most interested in.
These programs are worth much more than their $20.00 price.
OTHER PROGRAMS THAT ARE AVAILABLE

This program will challenge, entertain, and stimulate you for hours.

has, but adds six more exciting games. Besides the six extra games, you get
a disk full of jigsaw puzzle pictures. The registration fee is $20. 256K of RAM and any monitor

logic to win; Fusion, a game similar to Tetris but much more fun; Logical
Connections, a game of interactive symbolic logic; Maze Master, a maze game
where you race against the clock to reach the end of the maze; and Networks,

learning math fun. Registered users receive three other educational games

or EGA monitor required.

This is the highest quality collection of disk utilites you'll find. You can
use this program to edit disk files or sectors, optimize your drives, backup
your drives, or unerase a file that was accidentally deleted. DiskTool was
written in C and assembly language and is of the highest quality. It has been
thoroughly tested and performs flawlessly.
Since this program includes what you get in several commercial programs and
is of equal or better quality, it's fair to compare their prices. If you
bought this same collection off the shelf in your local computer store, you'd
pay at least $125. The registration price is $25. The program requires 256K
of free RAM and any monitor.
Create sounds for your programs with this package. Not only do you get a
high quality sound editor, but you get a library of routines that work
with QuickBASIC, C or Pascal. The sound routines are interrupt driven. That
means all the programmer has to do is load the sounds, get them started,
then continue with execution of other portions of the program. No more trial
and error timing loops, just run the editor to get that perfect sound and get
the professional edge. Registration price is $15. 256K of RAM required.
If you think you're good at casino-style card games, you've just got to get
this game. It includes Blackjack, Poker (seven card stud, five card
stud, and no-peekie), Solitaire, and Bacarat. The program's dazzling
graphics and sound will make you think you're right there in Atlantic City or
Vegas. The program supports CGA, EGA, Tandy 16-color, and MCGA (VGA) modes.
And if you're a real pro Card Shark gives you all the options to
simulate the real thing. You can play with as many as four other players,
sit in any position, set the table limits, and in blackjack decide how
may decks to play with. You can save your bankroll to disk and pick up
where you left off later. For the ultimate in fun and authentic experience,
this game is the answer. Registration price is $20. 512K of RAM and a CGA,
EGA, TAndy 16-color, or MCGA (VGA) graphics card are required.
