Traditional web based job sites may need to start rethinking their social networking strategies. Job seekers and hiring companies now have some options available to them which make the web based relationship richer and more fulfilling.
Here are a few new ones:
VisualCV … in their words: “A better resume, online. Include video, pictures and a portfolio of your best work samples. Securely share different versions with employers, colleagues and friends, and control who sees what. And did we mention it’s free?” Corporate clients will pay the bill so job seekers can use it at no charge. Phillip Merrick, raised $5 million from headhunting firm Heidrick & Struggles and Valhalla Partners to start-up this site. Here’s Phillip’s VisualCV.
Standout Jobs … is for employers looking to get the edge on hiring the best talent. They provide web based tools which act almost like a resume for companies.
