LinkedIn offers a new style of resume for those using their services in the form of Visualize.me.
The site allows users to create a visual representation of their Linkedin profile to showcase themselves in a more modern style. With competition being fierce for jobs, this allows a new approach for those looking to have an edge in the application process.
The site itself has a video to demonstrate how the process works and how it can give an edge for a typical job seeker.
The idea for the project came after journalism student Chris Spurlock created a viral resume to showcase himself in a way different from the traditional resume style. The ability to take a boring traditional resume and turn it into something new and exciting will likely give new life to the job hunt and be a welcome change for hiring managers.
