Creating an Online Resume

May 14th, 2013

Traditional resumes are uninspiring and antiquated. Employers desire candidates who can prove that they are creative and can stay relevant in an ever-changing world. Blue Barn Graphics can help you design a custom-made online resume that will be sure to stand out from the rest.

There are several advantages to an online resume. First, media such as images, sounds, and movies can be included. Your resume becomes integrated with your portfolio in a way that is seamless and intuitive to potential employers. Employers can get a better feel for your expertise in the field by experiencing it on your website rather than reading the description off a static sheet of paper. Blue Barn can not only help you create your custom resume, but has experience with video production as well.

Chances are that you already have a professional online digital footprint consisting of social media accounts, press releases, etc. While all of these things serve as artifacts of your experiences, it is not practical for an employer to take the time to research every candidate. With the help of search optimization tips , your website serves as the ideal landing page for all of your best online highlights.

Resumes, by nature, are intended to be limited in scope. With an online resume, your body of work can still be displayed in a way that is sleek and easy to navigate. Let us put our web design experience to use. Blue Barn can create custom navigation to make it easy for potential employers to dig deeper into areas that a traditional resume cannot. Presentation is important!

Finally, an online resume serves as a living, breathing document of your most current professional experiences. Not only is it beneficial in this regard, but more importantly, the actual act of creating an online resume demonstrates to potential employers that you are an individual who is creative, current, and willing to think out-of-the-box.
