Career portfolios for jobseekers
Back in the pre-internet Dark Age, resumes had to be one-page, one side. No exceptions. Social networking websites such as Facebook and LinkedIn are helping to break that mold, and recently launched VisualCV hopes to do the same. Anyone shopping for a job can sign on with VisualCV and create a page that resembles an online magazine article. Besides the traditional resume detailing a user’s career, members can upload a video describing themselves. There’s also room for uploading files that list references or examples of creative work, as well as space to highlight specific accomplishments. If a member made sales explode at their last job, for instance, they can display a chart to illustrate growth.
