The Internet has changed the way most people think about getting a job and in many ways has made it more competitive. And with all the tools available, people often string together a variety of pieces to send to hiring employers. They may send a traditional resume attached as a .doc along with the URL for their LinkedIn page and maybe a link to their personal website.
BriteTab.com offers a new approach to resumes, encouraging users to show off their personality with video, while still including traditionally required resume information. In their words,
BriteTab is a new kind of online resume, empowering job-seekers to show off their personality and experience and stand out from the crowd by combining the best elements of traditional resumes and video resumes.
The site allows you to upload videos for any section of your resume so it’s completely customized and the hiring manager can jump to what they think is most relevant. There’s no advertising or branding on the resume you send out and you can create as many versions of your resume as you need – each with a unique URL so you can send different versions to different employers. There are also metrics so you can see which of your resumes have been viewed and how many times.
Their resume building tool, called “Impression Lab” offers pre-designed themes, drag and drop interface, text formatting and the ability to upload images and videos. If you need to include samples of your work, you can attached them as downloadable elements. Reviewers have an option to print the resume in plain text and easily share it using the built in toolbar.
BriteTab offers a free version that allows for one free resume (which include their logo) or a premium service for $8.00 per month that includes unlimited resumes, photos, videos and attachments and no BriteTab branding. You can even send a plain text document to BriteTab and they’ll turn it into a rich resume for you.
BriteTab will be demoing as a showcased startup at TECH cocktail Chicago 13 on Thursday, May 13th, 2010 at John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville.
