If you’re in marketing, journalism, design, acting, or a number of other visually-based professions, employers can’t determine much about your abilities from a text resume. They want to see what you can do
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
WorkBlast.com, the leader in video resumes and career portfolios, has announced the release of the company’s Visual Portfolio product. The portfolio, which features text and video, coupled with additional supporting materials, such as recommendations, now includes the ability to share and market multimedia samples of career seekers' work to a global audience through the WorkBlast network.
While the portfolio product is available to all WorkBlast members at no cost, the company believes that certain niche industries naturally benefit. “If you’re in marketing, journalism, design, acting, or a number of other visually-based professions, employers can’t determine much about your abilities from a text resume. They want to see what you can do,” says WorkBlast CEO Nick Murphy.
WorkBlast Co-Founder Travis Cloyd agrees. “People in every industry and with all levels of experience can benefit from having a professional and complete WorkBlast profile. There are however some industries that require a visual presentation of a career seeker’s skills to even gain consideration for employment, and now WorkBlast can really help that group land an interview,” says Cloyd.
WorkBlast has pioneered technology that enables career seekers to create interactive portfolios to supplement traditional text resumes and market their skills to the world. Users can create free career portfolios, embed their portfolio videos in blogs, social media sites, emails, and personal websites, and leverage WorkBlast's robust professional network to make relevant connections with working professionals, employers, and resources within their industry and location.
