When college seniors began their job hunt, many found the market to be competitive, cut throat and often discouraging. Reading up on job tips and going to networking events became more of an inconvenience than an effective strategy.
But Florian Mettetal, a young expert with 10 years experience in the web technology field, chose a different approach when starting his search for new career opportunities. Mettetal created FacebookHire.me, which helped demonstrate his digital skills, related experiences, and interest in the company through a Facebook Timeline themed resume.
Mettetal constructed his resume last fall, in an effort to highlight his coding abilities and innovative ideas. Mettetal explained his reasoning for the digital twist opposed to the traditional application:
“I think it’s a way to stand out. It’s fitting for the marketing I’m going into, trying to get jobs with high tech companies,” said Mettetal.
But even if you are not interested in the technology field, Mettetal says that this type of resume demonstrates what you can do. A digital resume provides students with a unique way to brand themselves and show their potential and innovative capabilities. Employers will recognize your interest and time spent on company research, simply through the theme and organization of your page.
The benefits of a digital resume also allow companies to link to the websites of past experiences, ask questions directly onto your resume page, and differentiate yourself from other applicants.
The key to finding a job that you want is to make your application stand out and in doing so, incorporate your personality and related experiences to confirm you’re capable of fulfilling the requirements.
