The peeps at Vizualize.me say:
We believe that the traditional text resume is boring, lengthy and long overdue for a makeover. We are creating an online resume format that is beautiful, relevant and fun. We want to enable people to express their professional accomplishments in a simple yet compelling personal visualization. Our vision is to become the future of resumes.
Sounds groovy right?
The Vizualize website is in open Beta testing so I had to go and have a look… and its brilliant. Within seconds I had clicked a button to login with my Linkedin profile and the Vizualize website simply asked me if I wanted to import my resume from Linkedin and BOSH! It created this awesome infographic, with a cool URL (http://vizualize.me/nick.litten) and active pop-ups showing my work history.
Very very slick and certainly my preferred online display of my work history.
I’m not sure if this kind of active and visually appealing layout will work for submission of resumes for work positions. I suspect the more staid (some might say boring) traditional layout will be more effective. But, I’m the first one to give the peeps at Vizualize a big digital thumbs up.
