Visual resumes are starting to take hold and it is important we look at how to put one together. This one is hugely popular on SlideShare and that tends to suggest it is well worth considering. Employers are starting to look for something which will allow them to see the real potential in their applicants. Videos are hard to make unless you are really good at it. They can make a person seem awkward and silly when they are not. Cameras do strange things to people . Eventually we’ll get better at it but slide shows are a good interim measure for promotion and job panels. They strike a balance between giving personal depth as well as CV information. Some employers have taken to interviewing applicants on Skype and those sorts of web telephone applications, so we need to address these issues in school and the wider community and start looking at how to put a good visual resume together and one of the important points would be to ensure the content does not infringe copyright. We also need to look at what basics to include and for over the Net phone interviews , we are probably going to need to have handy running sheets next to our computer!
