Promote your general resume

Your general resume is an important tool in the job search process. It is not used for a specific job application, but can be used in a variety of ways.

I was applying for jobs in multiple industries, and needed to create different versions of my resume. Some jobs called for a creative portfolio, and others a traditional resume. With VisualCV, it was easy to create both!

What is a general resume?

Your general resume is likely the resume you just finished creating. It is a general resume that display your best work experiences and skills. If you are using it as an online portfolio, you might also want to add multi-media like images, video, and links to your past projects. This resume lives at your specific URL, such as Visualcv.com/your-name.

What do you do with your master resume?

Link from various online profiles: Link to your master VisualCV from various online profiles (Twitter, Facebook, your personal website, and LinkedIn). This allows anyone viewing your profile on those websites to view a more detailed experience.

Add it to relevant resume databases: Upload master VisualCV to relevant job boards and resume databases. You may want to export to PDF before doing so. Here is a list of job boards that may be useful to you.

Note: Only upload your resume to websites that are relevant to you — don’t post it everywhere. Click here for our list of the best job boards.

Create a personal website with your VisualCV

Make your VisualCV your personal website by using a custom domain name. Visit your account settings for details.

Apply for a job with a custom resume

Besides a general resume, VisualCV is designed for specific job applications. When applying for a job, it is important to customize your resume for the job application. Here’s why. To customize your VisualCV, do the following: - Create a copy of your master VisualCV - Choose the right design for the specific job - Make minor changes to your resume to best suit the job - Publish an online resume, or export to PDF

Once you have a custom VisualCV for each job (you can give it a unique name, to keep track of everything), you can then either email the link to an employer, or download a PDF version of that VisualCV and use it for the traditional application process.

Tracking your VisualCV

Once you have created a VisualCV, you can when and how many times it is viewed by visiting your VisualCV analytics dashboard.
