I wish there were just one "personal marketing tool" for job seekers that did it all. There's too many of them online these days. Each of them have a few decent features but most seem to be just lacking all around usefulness.
Take iAdverto.com for example. Their co-founder just emailed me about their 'self-marketing' website.
"iAdverto.com empowers job seekers, students and other professionals with the necessary tools to showcase their talents in a multimedia environment. The company is revolutionizing the way people market their skills, talents and qualifications. We provide candidates with a FREE interactive personal web page which displays their resume, professional photo, video profile, audio profile, and/or samples of their work."
The first thing that strikes me about this site is the URL they give to the job seeker to market themselves. Their sample site for Michelle Turner has the following address:
You can't tell me this long URL is good for self-marketing. How is a job seeker supposed to remember it? Let alone recite it to a potential employer. iAdverto might take clue from blogs and give the user a subdomain instead. iadverto.micheleturner.com would be much better.
The site also features areas for your resume, a summary, video, audio (which by the way crashed in Internet Explorer when I clicked it) and a calendar. The calendar page is especially puzzling. I don't see a need for it.
I have yet to see a job seeker marketing site I like. For my money, a personal blog is still the way to go when it comes to marketing yourself.
