These Visual CVs were created by students enrolled in my ENG 1123 (English Composition II) at JCJC in the Fall 2009 semester. Visual CV, I believe, is a great place for students to begin crafting a CV and even to establish an online portfolio. The CVs created here look nice and can be shared online or downloaded as a PDF.
Visual CV is a must for job seekers. It’s an online resume building tool that provides space for uploading portfolio artifacts and gives custom options for publishing the portfolio as a website. CVs can be saved or emailed as pdfs. This is a must more robust tool than resume templates or wizards in word processing programs, and it produces a fine looking document. It’s an easy answer for teachers and students covering job search units, and it’s an easy answer to portfolio building. NCTE recommends electronic portfolios for all students, and indeed they will need them on the job market. This is a great way for a student to set up a web presence to impress potential employers and potential graduate schools alike.
