Announced today, March 20, Career Portfolio creates a pictorial layout that transforms often restrictive resume templates into storyboards of a person’s career. The end result is an infographic that serves as a representation of all relevant work experience, skills, education, certifications and interests.
It is believed that an average recruiter only spends 30 seconds or less on a candidate’s resume and the Career Portfolio’s concise gathering of data is an effective way to convey large amounts of information quickly and clearly.
