How It Works

Welcome to Optimal 2.0, a career management platform brought to you by in partnership with Palmer's Center for Business Development.  Inside, you’ll find a variety of tools to help you CREATE, PRESENT, MANAGE and SHARE your professional credentials.

***Before starting each project, please watch the video tutorial. 
The tutorials will help you create a polished document and it will provide great tips and tricks to using the software.
You can use this website to:

  • Create high-impact, interactive career materials based on your career goals
  • Present your materials online — with our easy-to-use website builder — and in print, as you can download your materials in a number of formats
  • Manage an unlimited number of career documents from one central location
  • Share your credentials with your network on your own professional website and across social networking sites

If you have used the system before and already have an account, simply log in to begin.

Otherwise, hit Create New Account

*Be sure to check job postings on the Palmer CareerNetwork at  New jobs are added daily and vary from full-time, part-time, internship, entry level, and advanced.   

**Always remember to upload all your documents to the Palmer CareerNetwork.

PLEASE NOTE: Currently, OptimalResume developers are working to make our software compatible with this latest version of Internet Explorer and will make an announcement when those updates have been completed.  Until we finish making Optimal compatible with IE 11, in order to successfully use our website, you will need to either switch to an alternate browser such as Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome.  All are free.  Download Safari here, Firefox here and Chrome here or
uninstall the IE 11 Update and revert back to IE 10.   To do so please watch this brief video (begin at around the 2:00 minute mark)

Until we complete all testing and modifications, we suggest that all IE 11 users use an alternate browser when working in OptimalResume.  Our currently supported browsers are:

  •     Mozilla Firefox
  •     Google Chrome
  •     Internet Explorer version 10 or lower
  •     Safari

We appreciate your patience, and look forward to extending full compatibility to IE 11 users.
