I've been waiting for a service like this to pop up.
AudioResume is a unique new service that allows anyone with a phone to dial a toll-free number and answer a set of 5 questions about themselves. Once done that information is published to a unique URL for listening. You can even upload a picture of yourself.
Why I like it: the biggest reason is that anyone can do it so it doesn't have the barriers of a video resume or other rich media solution. According to their site;
The goal is to lead the job seeker into conversation pertaining to:
- professional aspirations, interests, and goals
- what motivates them in the workplace, and constitutes the ideal work environment
- preferred management & leadership styles
- identifying conflicts and their resolution process
- impact they made in previous positions, and impact they expect to make on future institutions for which they work
Your blog would also be a great place to put it. It's a great way to stand out from the crowd and articulate your qualifications and passion. The cost is $9.95 (appears to be a one-time fee)
