The wonders of Web 2.0 will never cease to amaze me.  I was checking out Richard Byrne’s Free Technology for Teachers blog the other day when I noticed a link to his VisualCV.  Like an interactive, web-based resume, VisualCV lets users organize and display text, graphics, and video in a number of attractive themes.  Through the service, users can share this document with particular individuals or with VisualCV’s corporate partners.

After seeing Richard’s VisualCV I decided to have a go at it.  I particularly like the PDF button that generates a printer-friendly version of the document.  The free service allows for one resume with a not-so-attractive URL.  The premium gets you a number of features, most importantly a custom URL and the ability to host multiple resumes.

Take a look at VisualCV even if you aren’t a computer whiz.  The editor is very intuitive.  Reorganizing entire sections is as simple as dragging them around.  Images are cropped and scaled automatically.  Have a look at mine or see what the power users are doing in the gallery.
