Web2.0 Expo 2008 – How to build a Web 2.0 Interactive Resume using VisualCV!

Well, I ran into this nice lady who explained how VisualCV works at the Web 2.0 Expo.

I think it’s a really good idea that they’ve actually made resume into a Web2.0ish interactive media.

It’s basically a free service that let’s you build resumes for yourself or even companies.

Instead of sending attachments, now you can simply point to your online resume as mine here:

(I made it in about 5 minutes)

Here’s a screenshot:

The greatest part about this VisualCV is that it comes loaded with widgets and AJAX drag and drop technology, so you can easily build a cool looking resume in just 5 minutes. (provided you already have an offline resume to copy and paste like me)

Anyways, check it out as these guys also even let you embed YouTube videos into your resume, how cool is that?  Another great feature is that there’s a PDF converter so your new employers can download the resume as PDF in a snap.

Of course, some of you guys are good enough to create all this from scratch but you do also get good online visibility of your resume on the site itself as VisualCV grows.

    Have you also tried http://www.mayomann.com ? Since you run around with your camera you should make a Video of yourself and use it if you apply for Job. It works very well in Canada.
