Visual CV Anyone?

6 Aug

The days of the paper resume may soon be over.  Thanks to the emergence of new technology, such as Visual CV, we may be able to save a few trees.  I stumbled across Visual CV and am impressed with its functionality.  It allows you to create your entire resume online.  One of Visual CV’s nicest features is the ability to incorporate social networking elements, such as YouTube and Yahoo videos and slide presentations right into your resume.  Another cool feature to jumpstart your resume is importing your LinkedIn and Facebook profiles.  Visual CV also allows you to import work samples for your portfolio and include a list of references.  Wow!  why didn’t I think of that!

Take it from someone who is actively in the job market, this type of technology can make you stand out.  Your visual resume can give prospective employers the opportunity to see your best work and learn a little about you.  Here’s how I’ve developed my visual resume: http://www.visualcv.com/patriciajoseph.  Why don’t you give it a try and create your free account at: http://www.visualcv.com
