a CV is more than just a resume, it contains much more information about your work, here you can describe in detail about what you do best. most international companies will ask for a CV and not a resume. i already have a resume. since i’ve been living and working in germany for the last 19 years…i need a little help to polish up my brain with those english technical terms which you use to describe about our scope of work.November 11, 2008 at 11:58 pm #176129Chris HeilerParticipantNovember 12, 2008 at 1:15 am #176128ncaParticipantNovember 12, 2008 at 8:08 am #176127

I use visualcv.com and I think it is fantastic. Unfortunately, some companies still insist on a printed “resume and samples of work” so I still find that I have to maintain both. I am sure this will change over time.
Visualcv.com is a lot like this site (except for the part where we’re all LA’s!), but I feel that it can be more comprehensive and customizable / professional. In mine, I’ve loaded samples of work (that I am otherwise prohibited from putting on a website) because I keep my sharing settings strictly by e-mail addressees.
I also have the usual resume stuff including lists of projects by company, skills, awards, publications, blah blah. BUT there’s also letters of recommendation (which would otherwise never be seen), refrences, etc. You can control sharing/visibilty by individual e-mails if you want, or just take it off-line. My biggest objection is that to share your visualcv with someone, it e-mails a link to them with a message from you. I suggest e-mailing it to yourself to decide whether the format of this outgoing message is what you want to be your prospective employer’s first knowledge of you.
OH- and you can have multiple visual cv’s under your account so if you want to customize one emphasizing planning work, and another emphasizing residential work, you can do that easily. You can also keep one for yourself just to keep track of dates, etc.December 17, 2008 at 4:16 pm #176124Chris HeilerParticipantJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:12 pm #176123
