Profile: VisualCV

Happy Friday Everybody!

I hope everyone has AC for the Yemeni heat wave we've been experiencing. So I wanted to share with all 14 of you a new Web 2.0 tool called VisualCV. Its punchline is a "free multimedia online resume that sets you apart from the competition." It is actually a really neat and sexy resume tool compared to the 18th century piece of tree bark you've been using the past few years. It's incredibly easy to set up and you can even import your Linkedin profile to pre-populate your work experience. Why can't every job application program do that? It literally took me 5 minutes to get my profile up to 50%. It has tabs for references, security clearances, images, audio clips and even video.

The only question do employers and recruiters view this revolution? Do think tanks, public policy associations, and government agencies search VisualCV for resumes? I doubt it, but it's a great way to illustrate your Web 2.0 capability and I would put a link in my actual resume to your VisualCV and maybe highlight it in your description paragraph. And also put a link in your Linkedin profile. Try that for a tongue teaser!

Here's what others are saying about VisualCV and other creative resume tools:

Profile: Young Professionals in Foreign Policy

Young Professionals in Foreign Policy is an amazing association and resource for entry level professionals interested in international affairs. It began over 5 years ago with just 20 members but has recently exploded to a 5,000+ strong association that is emerging as a potent force on the foreign policy scene. I will let the YPFP website describe the rest;

"Our Membership
As a dynamic community of future foreign policy leaders, YPFP has a diverse membership that crosses the divides of national boundaries, political ideology, and employment sectors.

Our members realize that no one joins the field of foreign policy to work in a vacuum. We recognize the need for collaboration, communication, and shared learning experience. YPFP provides those valuable opportunities to our members, which is why our mission has resonated with young professionals around the globe. In just five years, YPFP has grown from a small group of friends to a global nonprofit organization with more than 5,000 members."

And the best part is, YPFP is in DC, Brussels, London and New York! Upcoming DC events include a lecture on Careers in International Development on July 15th and another amazing lecture on How to Choose A Graduate Program on July 27th! Annual dues are only $35.00 and the networking possibilities are endless. Do yourself a favor and join up!
