Prezumes and why you need one!
It’s time to start looking for a job. So, what’s the first thing you do? Start updating your resume and shrinking the Times New Roman font to 11.5 so you can actually fit everything you would like to put. Then, ideally you would print out your resume (or submit online) and take it with you when turning in your application or during the in-person interview. As you walk out the door or exit out of the company website, you start questioning the effectiveness of your resume – Did it stand out? Did I include everything? Resumes work effectively however, within a very narrow set of guidelines. In other words, traditional paper resumes have limits. How do we transcend the limits of traditional paper resumes to increase our likelihood of job employment? Answer – Create a Prezume!
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “What exactly is a Prezume and why should I even bother creating one?” Easy. Prezume are digitalized resumes that similar to traditional paper resumes, showcase your achievements, notable work/awards/grants/etc., skills (i.e., Photoshop, CPR-Training, Microsoft Excel, etc.), past & current employment, and a number of other items you would place in your resume, all through the power of Prezi (i.e., interactive frames, an open canvas, and zooming). 9 out of 10 times, you will be the only person in the pool of candidates with a Prezume (talk about standing out)! Furthermore, if you are a graphic designer, writer, photographer, etc., a Prezume will allow you to showcase your work. Add samples of your work throughout the Prezume so your potential employer can bear witness to your amazing work. In short, Prezume trump traditional resumes with the sheer power of zooming!
