Enthuse.me allows users to create one-page-profiles that demonstrate their skills and passions, to be followed by and shared with other users and prospective employers.
Enthuse.me allows you to create a one page profile that showcases your skills, your knowledge, your expertise, and all things that enthuse you. The service is useful for people looking for freelance work in art, writing or design, as it showcases a quick yet informative overview of your skills and passions for potential employers. The site is also useful for members of other professions — academics, consultants, speakers, etc. — or anyone that has a passion about anything (which should be everyone!). While more traditional resume’s are limited by text, the internet allows individuals to actually demonstrate what you’ve done. Including a quip about how you directed a short video for a charity organization on your resume is one thing, embedding the actual video for others to view is a whole different story. Enthuse.me allows you to add videos, pictures, links, text and any other sort of information that enhances the demonstration of your skills directly to your profile. The service works with and integrates a wide variety of third party applications, such as SoundCloud for music or Twitter for comedians.
Enthuse.me also has a social component, allowing users to follow and interact with other experts. This makes it easy for users from a particular field — say, real estate — to connect with other professionals in their field as well as prospective clients. All of the information on a user’s profile is laid-out on one well-designed, simplistic yet informative page. The common, unwritten rule is that a résumé should generally be one page, as any more clutter can distract your potential employer. Enthuse.me adheres to that rule, which makes it easier and more fluid to navigate. But, unlike traditional paper résumés, it allows you to pack way more into the space. Also, the site allows you to focus on your passions and your practical skills and connect with likeminded individuals, something that’s pretty hard to do with just a piece of paper. No matter your passion or profession, enthuse.me has a place for you. You can sign up using email, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter in order to smooth the process and streamline your information.
