Very few resumes tell the whole story of a person, but that is exactly what Sumry is looking to do. The web-based application helps its users create interactive digital resumes that do more than just list their work histories and educational backgrounds.
Build the type of resume that’s likely to get noticed by recruiters and hiring managers by visiting Sumry and creating an account. Start populating the information on your profile page by manually adding things like your personal story, skills, personality traits, contact information, and even hobbies or passions. You can also add references to your interactive resume. All of these events, tidbits, and anecdotes are organized into a timeline that’s viewable on any desktop PC, tablet, or smartphone.
Although you have the option of printing out your resume to send via traditional mail, most Sumry users will prefer sharing their resumes with the platform’s social sharing tools. Click “Apply” in Sumry’s upper right-hand corner, and send your resume to as many hiring managers as you’d like. Sumry provides you with analytics and tracking tools that show exactly when your resume was opened, read, or downloaded. You can also track whether you got an interview, or you got hired, within the Sumry app.
