As we all know, job hunting and hiring is not what it used to be. Away with the traditional paper resumes, and into the future of online profiles, with the creation and help of the Internet. Nowadays, job recruitment has transitioned into applications and submissions completed on the web, so it is highly important that you have a virtual resume.
Here are a few reasons why having an online profile, like Harri, is important as we move forward with the times:
Paper Resumes Will Be Obsolete
Recruiters have a lot on their plates already, so it is very likely that they may not want to hassle with more papers and material. They may even possibly misplace your resume under all their work. Instead, you should make a note to the hiring manager that you have an online resume. Make sure to provide him/her a link to your profile via email before your actual interview.
Polished and Professional Portfolios
Creating a Harri profile is relatively quick and easy, and results in a polished, professional portfolio. You can showcase not only your work and experiences, but also other things, such as your personality, skills beyond the workplace and what you are passionate about, including hobbies and talents. For example, with the Gallery, you can display photos and videos of your craft, whether you are a pastry chef or barista.
Online profiles are highly customizable to suit your choice of field/industry. You can quickly update and make modifications to your resume on Harri. If you have a new job or want to add more pictures, you can, and with just a few clicks of a button.
Greater Exposure and Online Presence
Internet usage and social media consumption continue to grow year after year. When employers are looking to hire, they can easily browse through online profiles and resumes, and reach out to you, as a job seeker, without much effort if they are interested. Additionally, with a Harri profile, you have far greater reach and exposure, thus meaning a greater chance of being hired than someone that does not have online presence.
