Use LinkedIn to visualize your resume on Facebook

Want a new way to find top talent or attract hiring managers using social media? Last week, Toronto-based company  launched its resume visualization service.  Perhaps you’ve already seen a resume link on a friend’s Facebook status?

This web service is cool and it provides a unique opportunity for job seekers to promote themselves using social media.  The service is simple to use and it takes just seconds to implement.   Essesntially, imports your LinkedIn resume information and expresses it as an infographic.  This is a great format for sites like Facebook and Twitter because it takes written content from your resume and turns it into an easy-to-read visual graph – making it a fast and efficient way for HR and hiring managers (in particular) to review and sift through a sea of potential candidates.

The company’s CEO, Eugene Woo says that the goal of of is to “reinvent the resume by building something more relevant, more visual and more dynamic.  One way to do that is by transforming your text resume into an infographic.”

I played around with this site a couple weeks ago. It is an interesting way to display one's information in a visual form, but will it really impact hiring decisions? I am not so convinced, but it will be interesting to see if job seekers try this avenue to stand out from the crowd. Has anyone else tried this? I am curious as to what others think.

Quite and interesting site. I like it but will it translate into business usage. Time will tell.

What I do think that is practical is for a candidate to do a visual resume and then compare it to his chronological one. It's a great way to check for chronological overlap and missing job activity, etc..

Hi Katharine,

The link is   This tool has great potential and aids the people who prefer to receive and view information pictorially.  I have posted to my own status update and asked my 'friends' what they think of this form of presentation, compared to traditional resume/CV. I'll keep you posted on the feedback.
