Create a Living Resume with Facebook Timeline

Standard

Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.~Henry Ford

This winter was brutal!  It’s time for the spring thaw and I can think of no better way to get back in the swing of things than with a fresh new idea.  

On the way home today, I was thinking about a conversation I had with a colleague at Multifamilypro’s Brainstorming Sessions. He said to catalog all of your accomplishments and milestones on LinkedIn.  Excellent idea, right?  It is!  The only problem I have found is the lack of character my updates had.  

I like my excitement to jump off the page!  Adding updates to LinkedIn wasn’t giving me the wow factor I was looking for.  

Cue Facebook Timeline!  

In about an hour, I had taken all of my important information from LinkedIn and added it to a brand new Timeline layout.  Each step of my career now has a post, special accomplishments are highlighted and I will be building a portfolio through photo galleries within the next few days.  I have a few other ideas for custom tabs so keep your eye out for another post soon.      

I’ll be cataloging my experience, accomplishments and milestones on this living resume and would like to invite you to join me on my journey…  

Special thanks to The Training Factor 🙂
