Of course, if you have a website, you can always have a separate page for you CV. But rewriting the entire CV on a web-based basis, or copy & paste it, does not satisfy my requirements. I have a template for the CV and it looks pretty nice as a PDF document so I want my virtual CV to be “as is”.
Then Scribd [http://www.scribd.com] popped up. It’s an online service for uploading and sharing documents online. It happened to be what I needed. Here’s my CV:
What I’ve found surprising recently is that as I’m getting out of university and looking for a job to feed my life, job advice and career services keep coming up. Here’s one example: VisualCV at www.visualcv.com
The idea behind VisualCV is you will have one with photos, movie clips, and portfolio, visual and vivid. Another benefit is you can have peer-to-peer review of your CV, sort of social networking. But my comment is: it’s a time-consuming and creative process whose end-result is mysterious. It’s only for those who think of the box and requires someone from the receiving end to think at the same level. If you’re looking for a soul mate, a Visual CV is what you may want to have. Or you can make do with Scribd.
