When one job gets more than a hundred resumes, it is difficult to attract attention. How to present yourself quickly and easily, yet dynamic and fun? A different and better way of presenting is resume website, this way you can give a complete picture of yourself to the future employer.
If you are a media, digital or creative professional, resume website is something you absolutely need. The same is true if you want otherwise to establish yourself as an expert in one of the areas, but still do not have a professional blog. Here are three reasons why is resume website good idea:
1. You can control your brand
Most providers allows you to customize the page, from background images to font and text space, so unlike the uniformed LinkedIn profile, the personal resume website will stand out your personality and brand. When you open your site users will have instant visual display of who you are and what you do.
2. Instant portfolio
People are visual, so the more you can show that it is better for you. In your resume you can write that you have created a blog that tracks 15 000 readers, or with your personal website you can direct visitors to a site on the blog and show them why your blog is so good that it is accompanied by so many people. On a personal website, you can publish your work, and links to this works, such as crafted web page, written texts, and thus turn into an online portfolio of your work.
3. Point the people in the right direction
Although only 40 percent of companies use social media as part of the hiring process, a lot of them use it more informally. If a company sees your resume and try to find you on Facebook or LinkedIn, it is possible to get lost in a sea of other professionals who have a screen name as you. Well, if you have a personal resume website where you have links to your social profiles, then you have done everything that this company find exactly you.
