Search Engine-Style Resumes

'Google Resume' Could be the New Thing for Tech-Savvy Job Hunters

— August 5, 2013 — Lifestyle
Job applicants are becoming evermore creative and thinking outside the box, as apparent by this Google resume. Created by an aspiring writer named Chris Liu, the Google resume is a website that looks exactly like a Google search result page. The page contains everything about Liu, hyperlinking to his accomplishments, social media outlets and references. The online CV even has an introductory box with Liu's name and basic information, mimicking the quick result box that shows up on Google.

This online profile is definitely one of the most interactive resume, engaging employers in a unique way. Many social media outlets like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and even Vine have been used as platforms for sharing career aspirations. But this is the first time someone has incorporated the visual concept of a Google search page into a CV.

Being head-hunted by an employer is pretty much the same thing as being searched on Google, which is why this idea is clever and relevant. Plus, everyone is familiar with the world's most prevalent Internet search engine.
Trend Themes
1. Interactive Resumes - The rise of interactive resumes using creative digital approaches is a new area for tech-savvy job hunters.
2. Innovative Job Applications - Innovation in the way job seekers apply and present themselves, such as with a Google-style resume, could disrupt established job application processes.
3. Visual Cvs - Visual CVs, like the Google resume, that mimic recognizable digital interfaces, such as search engines, could provide a disruptive and engaging way for job hunters to showcase their skills and experience.
Industry Implications
1. HR and Recruitment - The rise of interactive and innovative job applications provides opportunities for HR and recruitment companies to find new ways to source and assess candidates.
2. Digital Marketing - For industries such as digital marketing, incorporating user-friendly and engaging interfaces, like the Google resume, into their recruitment process could offer a more personalized candidate experience.
3. Professional Development - Professional development companies could offer new ways of teaching job seekers how to create visually engaging resumes and online profiles like the Google resume.
