Looking for the best way to promote your resume?
ConnectCV is proud to announce a new feature that will get you standing out from the crowd. Promote your resume by adding a badge to your blog, website or email signature.
The badge will automatically link to your primary selected resume (you can edit this in your Privacy setting on your dashboard). To protect your privacy online, your email address, phone number and street address does not appear on your resume when accessed via this badge. Employers can still contact you via a discreet link in your resume.
Advantages of Using Badges
There are many reasons why you might want to use a ConnectCV badge on your blog, website or email signature. These include:
- Offering professional information through your online resume for potential employers
- Using a more eye-catching format than a plain text link
- Ease of recognition by other ConnectCV users
Once you place a badge on your blog or website, visitors can learn more about you with a simple click. Using the logos as badges means that anyone interested in finding you on a social networking site can easily find the one that appeals to them rather than searching through a series of text-based links.
How to Add ConnectCV Badges to Your Blog or Website
Here’s how to embed a ConnectCV graphic badge into your blog, website, or profile on another site:
- Log in to your ConnectCV account, or register for a new one if you’re not a current member.
- On your personal dashboard (the first screen) scroll down the page to the Get a ConnectCV Badge section
- Select one of the four available badges and copy the HTML code in the box beside it.
- Paste that code into the appropriate spot in your blog or website’s code, or use it on another network to direct visitors to your ConnectCV resume.
Deciding where to place a badge on your blog is a personal choice. Often there are widgets available depending on your blogging platform that will combine badges from different sites and present them all together. All you need to do in this case is get the code from each website and plug it into the widget. You can also place the badges by themselves, adding a bit of extra code to center or align the badge on the page.
