Unemployment rates are high. People all over the country are looking for work. Employers are overwhelmed with resumes in the mail and fax each day, all from hungry applicants eager for income. These candidates are all highly skilled professionals with bachelor degrees, MBAs, and even PhDs. A few applicant resumes will get a second glance and possibly a callback, but the majority will find a home in the trash.
Such a talented, large field of applicants all submitting resumes that look exactly the same, in the same format -- it's easy to get lost in the shuffle! That's why now, more than ever, job seekers need to separate themselves from the competition. That means using new techniques to get potential employers' attention, techniques such as creating an online portfolio or online resume.
An online resume or "e-resume" is either an email version of your resume or a small website setup so that with just a couple of clicks, you can send out your resume, either in the email as an attachment or as a link, to potential employers. Within seconds, your potential employer will receive it in his or her email box, something visited far more frequently than a postal mailbox. E-resumes get the job done faster and more efficiently!
If you choose to turn your e-resume into a website, you have the opportunity to showcase your personality, and depending on your profession, examples of your work! Eye-catching colors and even a professional-looking photo of yourself can give your potential employer an idea of your personality and level of creativity.
