Complement Your Resume With a Website

Job Search Tip: Complement Your Résumé With a Website

Posting your résumé online is a piece of cake, but eliciting a response is a whole other issue. There's no replacement for a polished résumé — it's the backbone to any successful job hunt, the tailored suit to an interview, if you will. But there are new online tools that are serving as accessories to the good old résumé and can make your whole professional package more attractive.

The Wall Street Journal tested four services that let you create your own résumé Web sites: Doodlebit, WebResumePlace, InteractiveResumeServices, and VisualCV. They tested the user friendliness of each service and asked Tory Johnson, a career coach and founder and chief executive of New York recruiting company Women for Hire, to judge the presentation of the products generated.

All of the services but one cost money to use, and it turned out that both the WSJ testers and Johnson preferred the free service, VisualCV. Johnson said that these services won't do much good if they aren't executed well, but she thinks using a Web-based résumé can augment your basic one.
