What to include in your e-resume?

google-homepage-ecards-someecardsContent is key – as online gurus would say. And let me tell you, they would be absolutely right!

The objective is to tell a potential employer more about you. Your e-resume needs to reflect how you process your area of expertise in your head, and how you can express it into words. For some candidates it is quiet of difficult to get to this point, but for others it’s just a matter of finding keywords to get a better position in the organic search.

You do not need to be a techy guy (or gal!), you only need clear, targeted words.

First, your professional image needs to be reflected in your pages layout. You can play a bit with creativity and intelligence. This is entirely up to you.

Second, your pages must show visual consistency. Consider your landing page –or resume’s page- like your brand template when you create new pages.

Third, your content should engage the reader. How can I help X or Y organization? What do I have to offer? What are my “brand” promises?

Fourth, always include a call to action.  What does the reader need to do next? Should they call you? Or email you?

However, once you decide how to manage your own online reputation, I suggest your e-resume should at least include the followings:

  • Home Page
  • Recent Projects
  • Contact Page
  • Experience with your resumes (or resume) on it
  • Interests or social engagement
  • Any other page you believe is appropriate

Your content comes from your resume. You only need to populate new pages with the latest information and always remember your content must show what is in it for potential recruiters.

Why should they pick you?
