Maybe it’s because of this post or maybe it’s the economy, but I’m getting a lot more e-mails asking specific questions about job search. This is great, because I love hearing what job searchers are having the most difficulty with. The two questions that I get asked most often are: “How do you find all of the jobs that you post about?” and “How do I stand out when my resume is one of hundreds or even thousands?”
We’ve done a lot of answering of the first question, but how the heck are you going to stand out from the crowd? Since we tend to focus more on finding jobs than getting jobs here, we’ve teamed up with VisualCV to give you some help when it comes to standing out.
One of the only ways that you can differentiate yourself from other applicants is your resume. VisualCV is an online resume service that not only makes building a great looking resume easy, but it also makes it a breeze to share your resume with the world. Whether you’re linking to it from a Facebook ad that you targeted to an employer or exporting it as a PDF to e-mail to a recruiter that you met a career fair, a VisualCV is an awesome way to share your accomplishments with employers.
Usually we’d give you a list of tips to get started with VisualCV, but since we’re trying to make job search more social, we’re going to try something new. We want a lot of participation, so take a few minutes to follow the steps below, and start on your way to standing out.
1. Sign up for VisualCV. Use this link so that you get the special sign up page for One Day, One Job readers.
2. Post a link to your VisualCV in the comments section of this post. I’ll be the first example, so go look.
3. Take a look at other One Day, One Job readers’ VisualCVs and offer tips and suggestions on how they can improve their online resumes. Be nice, but constructive criticism will be appreciated by everyone. Also, feel free to ask questions.
This should be fun! I know that we have a few resume experts out there who read One Day, One Job regularly, so I hope that they’ll chime in and offer a little free resume consulting to some of the first few participants.
