Visual CV, Inc. has reinvented the resume to make it more relevant for networking, business developoment and career progression within today’s Web 2.0 environment. Visual CV, Inc. provides technology and support for the VisualCV, the VisualCV.com community and “Powered by VisualCV” private label platform.
The VisualCV is a new approach to creating an Internet-based resume, building and managing an online career portfolio, and securely sharing professional qualifications with employers, customers, partners and colleagues. VisualCV.com allows professionals to do this all in one place, with privacy and control, for free.
VisualCV.com was developed to solve problems that professionals face as they seek to find jobs, develop and advance their careers, while at the same time helping employers find and hire better candidates faster. Traditional resumes have many limitations: they become stale and out of date, lack detailed qualifying information, do not showcase work samples or achievements, provide no tracking capability, do not let professionals stand out, often sit on resume sites drawing unwanted solicitations, or go unnoticed at the bottom of an inbox.
VisualCV.com solves these problems by providing a new way for individuals to present themselves professionally and stand out, whether they are changing their job, managing their career or building their professional network.
VisualCV reinvents the resume using technologies that transform the way in which resume data is presented, accessed and shared. A VisualCV allows professionals to easily build and manage an online career portfolio that comes alive with informational keyword pop-ups, video, pictures, and professional networking. VisualCV.com enables secure sharing of VisualCVs for networking, career advancement and business development.
“Powered by VisualCV” is a private-label technology platform that enables organizations to privately brand and manage VisualCVs within a membership community. “Powered by Visual CV” is available via annual license under a SaaS model that provides a faster route to market with no IT overhead.
Based in Reston, Virginia, the company has received investments from Heidrick & Struggles (Nasdaq: HSII) and Valhalla Partners.
