What does a visual CV hold for you? What format should one use?
When we begin a job search, we are still an unknown candidate to the recruiters. They aren’t aware of our potential and how we fit the job profile. From a job description we know what they are looking for, but is that same as them knowing that we are what they are looking for? That’s where a resume comes in, as an introductory form, which is why resume writing is such an important task.
To put yourself forward to a recruiter or a potential employer, an accepted and traditional form of introduction is the CV – the curriculum vitae (CV), also called the resume. The most popular method of showing who you are professionally is the resume; and it has evolved in the past few years to include an updated version – the Visual resume builder– which has become acceptable in many sectors now, especially those that don’t insist on a traditional layout.
The benefits of Create a Visual Resume can be listed as follows
Use of infographics to show the candidate’s data, display education, various categories of skills and achievements.
Use of a creative layout that makes it easy for recruiters/hiring managers to read at a glance.
Ensures keywords, buzzwords from job description are prominently displayed as recruiters are trained to look for these.
Allows the opportunity to add flair and creativity to the resume in a controlled manner, while going for concise content over style.
To define what is a Visual Resume:
It is a graphical representation of a candidate’s qualification and skills, highlighting his/her key skill sets and achievements.
It is a visually pleasing combination of infographics and an intuitive layout that enhances the regular style of making a resume. This eliminates information that is irrelevant to the job being applied to, and makes sure the candidate’s resume is not being ignored in a rush, it is known that recruiters are much time-pressed and need to look at dozens of resumes at one go.
