Vancouver, B.C. – December 23, 2011 – Talent Technology Corporation, providers of Talemetry™, the leading talent generation solution for corporate HR and recruitment agencies announced today the acquisition of VisualCV.com, a product that delivers an interactive, online resume/CV creation service for job seekers.
VisualCV‘s mission was to reinvent the resume/CV and create a visually compelling online experience allowing people to build and manage their online career portfolio and securely share professional qualifications with employers, customers, partners and colleagues. This agreement ensures elements of this mission will continue and evolve as part of Talent Technology’s mission to connect people and jobs through smart technology.
In this highly competitive job market it is often difficult for a job seeker to effectively tell their professional story and stand out from the crowd using the traditional one or two page document or a static online profile. VisualCV.com allows job seekers to include engaging content such as videos, images, audio, and work samples helping them stand out from the crowd and truly showcasing their accomplishments.
VisualCV.com originally planned to cease operations at the end of 2011. However, the service will continue to operate as a standalone offering, allowing current VisualCV.com users to continue to leverage their dynamic and secure online resumes. As part of Talent Technology, users can also look forward to new innovations to help them create even more engaging online resumes faster and easier in the future.
“We are excited to continue to offer this service to VisualCV.com customers and look forward to providing even more value in the future,” says James Thomas, VP of Marketing at Talent Technology. ”VisualCVs are not only a great tool for job seekers, they also help corporate HR departments and recruiting agencies learn far more about each of their candidates, enabling them to make more effective hiring decisions.”
