A social media format is optimized for easy uploading to social media Websites, as well as other Web 2.0 environments where building a social media resume helps establish your personal brand. Many of these sites utilize a technology that will pull information from your document to create your online profile.
In addition, this resume may be printed and utilized for companies that scan your resume into an automated applicant tracking system (a resume database). The social media format differs from an ASCII resume in that it is more presentable and easier to read with proportional fonts; however, because the social media format is for improving your profile and rising to the top on social media channels, stylized text and graphics are removed to ensure optimal compatibility.
Your social media profile format will be dynamically written and professionally crafted to help you stand out when companies search for candidates online or via an internal database. While this format will rank well for various Web and database searches, it will also generate a positive and enthusiastic response in a human reviewer.
