In this age where everything is online, web resumes are just one more addition to the list of things that have gotten relegated to the WWW.
For the world to see.
Think back to the days when people used to keep personal diaries, where they would jot down their thoughts, feelings, hopes and aspirations. Very soon, the personal diary ceased to be personal and went online, in the form of blogs. Of course, there are still some things, even today, that people do not like to share with the world and would like to keep personal, so personal journals aren’t entirely extinct, but are nearly so.
Likewise for resumes. The difference is that, as far as one’s resume going online is concerned, the benefits are manifold over the paper resume.
For starters, web resumes, by virtue of being online, are likely to turn up in search results. Whenever somebody runs a search with your name, your web resume will be among the list of results that turn up. Additionally, if you optimize your web resume with the relevant terms for your field of work, whenever somebody runs a search with those terms, your resume will be among the results once again. Thus, you increase your chances of being identified as a potential candidate for a job position. This is one-up over the traditional job sites, wherein your resume turns up only when a recruiter looks at that particular site. With web resumes, you open up a whole world of opportunities.
As is a well known fact, the ideal length for a paper resume is two pages. Therefore, more often than not, one ends up trying to squish in as much information in the limited amount of space, and eliminating much more. However, with a web resume, that is not a concern. True, the issue that you could lose your hiring manager’s interest still remains, but with a web resume, you can create different section, post images and PDF files of your work, upload pieces of music that you’ve created, and much, much more. This way, you won’t even lose the hiring manager’s interest.
Thus, with so many advantages, it would be silly to not make the most of this amazing tool. However, if your resume doesn’t impress the hiring manager, then the benefits of having it at your disposal will be lost. This is where Style Resumes steps in.
