It’s that time again – you’re job hunting. You’re looking for something bigger, better, and more exciting. You want to move up the ladder, and you want to make sure the world knows what you’ve been up to so that you land that dream job.
How do you do it? Resumes are the first hurdle, and often the most difficult one. Recruiters and HR professionals see hundreds, if not thousands, of resumes a day. So how do you make sure you land that interview?
You need to stand out from the crowd, make your mark, and show your future employers just how cool you are. Just having a resume is no longer enough. In, fact it isn’t even enough to have a unique resume. Graphic design? It’s been done. Fancy fonts? That’s so old. Colours? That just looks childish. How do you take a simple sheet of paper and make it stand out, when everything is already being done?
The easiest way to stay ahead of the curve is to use technology to help you out. With the advent of the internet, online resumes have become increasingly popular. Having an online professional profile makes it easier for people find you and find information about you.
What if you could take that and kick it up a notch? What if you could not only build a resume online, but make it a conversational resume? By using the latest technology, not only will you ensure that you stand out, but you will also make things a whole lot easier for yourself.
Why should I use a bot to create a resume?
For starters, the point of a great resume is to stand out and be remembered. Having a unique conversational interface instead of a plain paper is a great way to ensure that you make an impression on your recruiter.
Another problem with traditional resumes is that they have to be modified according to each job you apply for. With a conversation, the person on the other end can ask you the questions they want answers to, and only get relevant answers. No need to wade through reams of unnecessary text!
Resumes can be notoriously difficult to execute well. What font do you choose? How do you present your skills without sounding pompous or disconnected? A bot is so much easier to build, especially on a platform like Bottr. All you have to do is feed in your info in the form of questions and answers and the platform takes care of the rest.
Let’s not forget – compared to a sheet or two or paper, a site offers a great platform to showcase your skills with photos, videos, text and sound. It’s a way to show off the best parts of who you are without overwhelming the person looking at you. And imagine being able to do that selectively. Imagine an employer asking to see the cake you last made and Bottr showing it to him immediately!
All of this is great – but why would you want a bot and not a website? If you’re still not convinced, here’s a couple of reasons why we think chatbots are the future.
Websites are commonplace now – it’s so easy to get one. If the idea is to stand out, what better way than to use something that’s new, fresh, and super unique? A bot can be just as easy to build if you have the right platform, it’s a unique voice, it’s a great way to stand out, and probably the best reason of all – it shows everyone who you are, in your own words, with your own voice.
What more do you need? Chatbots are the future – all you need is to go out and get one!
