I’ve said it before, but it can’t be stressed enough – whether you think social media is your thing or not, it’s here to stay. And recruiters have a new playground to watch. They’ll be there. Don’t miss the opportunity to be there too. [tweet this]

Thinglink yourself

Emily Turner, founder of the digital agency 100and 40, is most known to the public for setting up the unofficial Mrs John Lewis Snowman Twitter account last year.

After noticing John Lewis had failed to take its popular Christmas ad stars online, Turner set up the account with the intention of sending a few joke tweets to John Lewis. But things escalated quickly and soon she found herself at the helm of the Twitter account boasting two and a half thousand followers.

The rest is social media history. Read the story here, and watch her amazingly interactive Thinglink resume below. [tweet this] (Hover over the picture).


Pinterest your resume

Mark Johnson made a Pinterest resume for an interview with a major advertising agency. [tweet this]

He reported their HR department had never seen anything like this. Four Pinterest boards incorporates his infographics and relevant projects. It’s visual, interactive and engaging.

In the Slideshare below, Mark gives detailed insights into what he included in the boards and how he managed the interview completely without paper.

YouTube your mustache

Matthew Epstein created an epic video resume trying to get Google’s attention. [tweet this] This guy has great actor skills, is hilarious and has lots of personality. The resume went viral on YouTube, and Epstein got 80 job interviews by companies that saw the video.

Slideshare an anti-resume

David Crandall created a Slideshare resume which is like no resume you’ve ever seen before. [tweet this] His ANTI-resume manifesto is the start of the change he felt was needed in his life.

Among his strengths, David specifies x-ray vision, telepathy and superhuman information consumption. He wants to be the voice of a brand, and combine his superpowers with theirs.

  1. Great article! I like the idea of making the resume as interactive and visually appealing as possible. It is something I have been working on for the past 3 weeks. I created a PR online portfolio on WordPress, including audio-visuals and infographics, such as Do’s and Don’ts for hiring me: What do you think?
