Today, I was browsing the vast social media field and came across something pretty awesome. A New York based multidisciplinary designer left a lot of his fellow job seekers in the dust by making his interactive, animated, and graphically fun CV. See the full version HERE!
In short, I think this is what it's all about! Having fun, putting your own skills to the test by challenging the norm. I LOVE IT! He made sure he will have NO problems getting job offers because he made himself valuable. He's shown what he can do instead of making you guess! The resume tells and, more importantly, shows the whole story of his capabilities - Well done, sir.
A little while back, I was asked to speak about video-CVs - Why make one? The answers are pretty similar to what I would say about this online resume: Video-CVs show personality. As an employer, you can see which prospects put the time, care, and effort into their resume. It shows their willingness to work and dedicate time to stand out from the standard. They've taken the initiative to create a little something special for a function that is so mind-numbingly normal.
These are some of the things that WILL separate you from the competition. Now, let's be bold!
What do you think about this guy's idea? Have you seen other great examples somewhere? Care to share?
