LinkedIn has changed the game when it comes to recruiting, networking, and job hunting. But the marriage of technology and recruiting doesn’t end there. With the popularity of infographics, it makes sense that someone would try to visualize the resume.

Vizify is a living, interactive resume with a personality. It makes your LinkedIn profile look like as boring as a paper resume. If you’ve been jealous of creative types who put together head-turning self-promotion ideas like this video-game inspired resume, be jealous no more. Vizify does the hard work for you.

With just the click of a button, Vizify turns your experiences into a personal website filled with visually-appealing graphics. Just sign in with LinkedIn, Twitter, or another social network and your information automatically populates within their template. You can edit it from there. Graphs include everything from photos to “Words: Things I say a lot on Twitter” to “Career: My professional story,” a bar graph-like timeline of the various positions you’ve held.

Users can add or customize pages like “Connections,” “Activities,” and “Factoids.” The “cards” feature is a collection of miniature infographics surrounding your obsessions, coffee habits, advice, and the like.

What do you think about this more personalize approach to the resume? Read more about how Vizify can be used in the recruiting process.
