Get Your Resume Noticed

Unless you have been hiding under the proverbial rock, you already know that a virtual resume is a great tool to aide in your online job search. You may have taken the first step by updating your LinkedIn profile and customizing your page. However, if you take your search one step further, you can purchase a domain name specifically to host and display your virtual qualifications for the whole world to see.

But you see, this is much more than saving your resume as a pdf and posting it online.

The benefits of a virtual resume are numerous. One of the most important includes having complete control over what details you share and how you display your information. Additional benefits of a virtual resume include:

  • No page restrictions – a traditional resume maxes out at two pages. No such limitations exist online, offering you the space to write as much or as little as you want.
  • Creativity abounds – for many of us, trying to capture our greatest accomplishments on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper is unthinkable. Moving your resume online gives you the flexibility to not just write, but show potential managers the best of you.
  • Additional media – the internet provides the opportunity for us to embed music, video, PowerPoint slides, workshop presentations, and/or various notes and accolades. Use this to your advantage and show others what you can do!
  • Portfolios aren’t just for artists – Do you have an amazing presentation that showed the company how to save money? Did you spearhead the redesign of an entire system? Did you and your team nail an MBA project? Upload it to your virtual resume.
