This recruitment platform is trying to change the way job seekers are selling themselves to potential employers. Sumry is turning the traditional resume template on its head by focusing on the stories of individuals and highlighting their strengths that way instead. This is an especially good strategy for positions where soft skills outweigh past job experience or where company culture is of extreme importance.

The human approach of the recruitment platform narrows in on character and values, simplifying the hiring process for both candidates and teams who hate sifting through CVs.

In addition to telling their story, Sumry users can stand out by adding blog posts, pictures, social media activity and videos. This profile can be sent out to any online job posting looking for email or PDF applications. While Sumry sends out 'introductions' to companies with a short message, users can also track their applications.
