We’ve seen a number of companies recently trying their hand in the brave, new world of social job hunting. Visual resumes are the in thing, as you will have noticed with previous weekly faves, Re.Vu and Kareer.me, turning standard data into attractive and appealing visualizations of your professional self. ResumUP takes this concept one step further, by creating a visual profile for both candidates AND employers…
On my journey from student life to becoming a professional, I’ve come to realize that in order to find the job of your dreams, you have to do something different yet simple: employers want a clear view of what you can do, and what they can teach you to do. That’s why having an attractive, appealing resume with color, style and graphically designed organization is so useful. And with ResumUP you don’t need to be a Photoshop professional to have one! As you can see in the video, simply log in with Facebook and/or LinkedIn, and ResumUP does all the hard work for you, creating a beautiful, eye-catching, yet simple resume in just seconds! Magic! You just fill in the missing details around your imported information, and then even see how your resume rates against other similar users who’ve made one, to stay one step ahead of the recruitment game.
The same of course applies to the recruiters as well as the recruited. As any business owner will tell you (especially a startup one), getting in the right talent is one of the hardest parts of the job; and creating an attractive, stylish, and colorful, yet clear and simple recruitment page like Sony’s ad for a PR specialist below couldn’t be easier on ResumUP. This really could be an interesting new way to help you and your company find the right candidate.
