Adding a social network link to your CV / resume

We all have profiles on a lot of social network websites and servers, and I’m not going to talk about that , because I already talked about them a lot in my blog ….

also I’m not asking if we can use our profile links in our official CV and resume, because I already talked about that…

Now I’m talking about applying these theories in real life, and then see what will happen to study such an activity and its effect on the new style of CV quality.


My idea is that when you apply to a job that the interviewer is young, or have a Facebook/twitter/linkedin profile, he would search your name in it to look at your personal life, maybe he want to study your behavioured to know more, or just out of curiosity, and we can’t deny that these social network can’t affect our career life, because I know some people who got fired because they called for a sick leave, then their managers caught a picture from that day having a party, or a hangover, or even a check in some location they would never be if they are really sick…..


so My idea is that, what if we synchronise our social network profiles with our career life, and add them together by taking these profile, modifying them to fit in both personal and career lives. That would make your picture “specially fresh graduates” pretty good, and people would accept you because of your social discipline and what your online profile reflects.


When we reshape the profile, then we can put a header in our CV/resume and call it as: my social network link, then add one or two or even three links, because as before, the CV.s didn’t contain the email address, but they added that later, now CVs don’t contain the social network link, but we are working on adding them.

in my CV, I have a mobile number, an email and a skype nickname added there because I work through Skype also …. then I added my blog link as an extra personal links (beside my portfolio
