Imagine this scenario: You’ve been desperately trying to find a job, and have tried every possible opening. Every position that seems even remotely relevant, you’ve applied to. Your resume is posted all over the Internet. You then decide to take a break from it all and attend a party that a friend has thrown. Of all the people in the world you could bump into at this party, you run into the human resources executive of the very company you’ve been dying to work with; but guess what… you don’t have your resume with you!
Sounds like fate dealt you a terrible blow? Well, take your destiny into your own hands… with your very own mobile resume!
Mobile resumes, as the name suggests, are mobile-friendly resumes. With a simple scan of a QR code, you can view anybody’s resume on your phone. If it’s well done, a mobile resume can display neatly and systematically a person’s skills, education, work experience and achievements — everything that one might find on a paper resume, but in a more convenient and compact manner.
How it works
As mentioned earlier, all one needs for a mobile resume is a specially designed QR code. Once your resume is created, all you need to do is create a QR code (there are plenty of free as well as paid services for QR code generation available online).
Once you have the QR code, you can store it on your phone. Then the only thing that remains to be done is for somebody to scan it from your phone, to theirs. Alternatively, you can even have the QR code printed on a business card, so that when you hand it over to someone, they automatically have your resume as well.
This way, even if you are not ready with your paper resume at hand and you chance upon an influential person, you can simply get him to scan the QR code and he will have your resume for reference.
The possibilities that this opens up are endless. Even in our daily lives, we tend to take the easy way out — rather than copying words from a printed book on to our laptop, we prefer to find the references online so that we may copy-paste and then rework the material according to our needs in order to have to type less. Likewise, you are much more likely to have your resume read if it’s available to a recruiter in a handy mobile resume format rather than a sheet of paper which he could misplace, lose altogether, or even worse, relegate to the pile of other paper resumes that he has already been handed by other potential job seekers.
