Founder & CEO of Interactive Portfolio, Starr Romano, is proud to announce the launch of Intportfolio.com. This modern approach to the video resume concept provides its members with an innovative way to create and share professional portfolios. Members can create a free portfolio featuring video responses to common interview questions, aptly titled “About Me,” a “Walk through My Resume” and “Why You Should Hire Me.” They can also attach their resume along with other important credentials to showcase academic achievements and professional accomplishments. Each portfolio has its own unique URL which can be shared via email, social networking sites and listed on business cards or resumes making it that much easier to network online.
The straightforward layout is designed to help the candidate create guided, professional videos featuring relevant information to help employers evaluate their qualifications, while also assessing valuable soft skills such as self-confidence, attitude and communication skills. “As professionals, some of our greatest qualities include the drive, motivation and professionalism that help showcase our work ethic and individual personalities. Unfortunately, that motivation and drive usually gets lost on traditional job boards,” said Sergio Romano, Business Development Manager. “Think of it like having the ability to sell yourself to employers in a job fair environment without having to stand in long lines, reciting your 30 second elevator pitch over and over again.” View a sample professional portfolio here.
Employers can also sign up to create an Interactive Portfolio featuring their own videos, allowing them the ability to humanize their company, build their business brand online and directly connect with potential leads. Each business portfolio features three short videos entitled “About Us,” “What We Do,” and “Who We Hire” along with a tab to display relevant company information. With a paid membership employers have the ability to search candidate portfolios and for a small fee they can also post positions to the job board. View a sample business portfolio here.
About Interactive Portfolio
Starr Romano founded Interactive Portfolio in 2011 to help job seekers gain more control over their job search, while assisting employers who wish to accelerate and streamline the hiring process. Frustrated with her inability to stand out in a saturated job market despite her extensive experience and education, Starr wanted to create a means to showcase her personality and other skills in a way that would humanize her resume for prospective employers. With this in mind, she launched Interactive Portfolio, as a venue for professionals to communicate all of the things that a traditional resume leaves out.
