I’ve noticed recently many people adding VirtualCV to there list of online media to promote themselves. What is it? I hate when I get pictures on resumes, I think it’s silly (though that mindset can change tomorrow and probably will).
But this is different. It’s a way to add some pizzazz to your on-line brand.
VisualCV is highly indexed on Google and can really search as a landing page for those sourcing your name on-line. Hmm… as a recruiter this could be a great tool. Well, maybe not. Why would I want my profiles index by the one powerhouse of a search engine so candidates can research me and contact me? Do I need to answer this? It’s an actual question that was posed to me earlier today.
Seriously though give VisualCV a shot. Creating a brand or a presence is obviously important as a recruiter. Findability is key to your success and how you brand yourself will dictate just that.
Visual CV is a pretty neat tool that can be used in a variety of ways. Employers can search for resumes or even promote a brand. Candidates can promote themselves; look for a new gig, or to promote a speaking engagement. The opportunities are endless and the marketing ability you gain can be priceless.
Social Networking, job boards, Blogs, career repository – these are just a few ways thousands have used this service.
Sourcing Tip: the key to building an established on-line brand is inter-connectivity among all of your social networking sites.
Oh did I mention this is FREE!
