Using Links to Stand Out | Job Search Radio

Listen to the full episode here:

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses. added adding links to your resume.


Over the course of time, most resumes are pretty obvious and predictable.

There's one thing that you can do is include URLs to other places where you have a web presence.. Whether that is LinkedIn, Twitter, Github, stack overflow... Whatever the site is will you have a web presence (and a good web presence, obviously), it serves you well because it gives you an opportunity to distinguish yourself from the people that you are competing with.

You can show samples of your work there. For example, creative people can take people to another site where they have a portfolio. If you're an IT person and have developed code is available for download, there's an opportunity to take people to a page where it is available through that link.

Don't just simply stick to her resume. Include a link to the sort of things that will allow an employer to get a richer view of you and your capabilities and you will stand out from the people you are competing with regularly.
