From Facebook Timelines to Infographic CVs

 - Dec 17, 2012
The digital world has put a new spin on CVs, and while the old paper and Word documents are still the professional ones, they can be quite mundane compared to the creative virtual resumes the HR manager gets to see.

Employment is competitive and although individuals may be excellent at interviews, they must enchant HR managers and other potential employers who may be reviewing their resumes first. Looking good on paper is the first foot in the door. The reviewer sifts through hundreds and thousands of CVs on a regular basis so applicants have to work extra hard to make theirs stand out from the crowd. Depending on the industry the job application is for, creative virtual resumes such as using Facebook's Timeline of colorful infogaphics may be quite advantageous.
