What is a VisualCV and Why Do You Need One? was originally published on College Recruiter.
VisualCV.com gives you the chance to build a unique web portfolio – a richer, more compelling version of your traditional paper/Word resume. You can add graphics, documents, audio and video files and go from telling about what you’ve done to showing… and selling.
The site recently held a “best VisualCV contest,” and not only are the winning entries inspiring, they have also led to job offers!
Oh… and the best part? You can build and host your VisualCV for free. No fees, no ads, no sponsorships.
I have been affiliated with the company since the planning stages – I’m on the advisory board and I wrote an “Insider’s Guide” for creating a powerful VisualCV. (It’s a free download.) So yes, I guess I am biased! But I haven’t seen anything that comes close to the ease and value of this free portfolio service. Not to mention the other value-added benefits that include connecting with employers, recruiters, and others.
