Unemployed? Pin for the Win.

You can already share your individual style, ideal travel spots, and so many clever ways to break the news that you’re preggers, but now you can share something even more descriptive and intimate with your board’s followers: Your resume. When it comes down to it, Pinterest is all about branding and isn’t that exactly what you aim to to do when you send your customized resume (dear God, please don’t tell me you use a word template) out to hundreds of perspective employers? As someone who has been in the position of combing through resumes to fill various intern positions, I can preach about how vital it is that you do something to differentiate yourself from the rest, whether it’s a resume design you created from scratch, a video submission with a creative podcast you produced, or better yet, a Pinterest entirely dedicated to the branding of your corporate identity.

Helpful hint: Use Resume Bucket or try saving your Word doc as an image…the easiest way to do that is to save it as a pdf and then convert from pdf into image.
