I'd like to create business plan but i think we need to gather more information first.
So i'm putting in 10 hours at [url removed, login to view] to brainstorm ideas, strategies, options for devloping my website called [url removed, login to view] My plan is to do a combination of Facebook & Linkedin type look or feel but to me facebook is mostly social and linkedin is all business. I think the old 2 page standard resume hasn't changed much in 40 years. I'd like to create a business website that shows your personality. Like if you clicked on Photos in Facebook in my site i'd like to it be "Events" or something where you can post business pictures. You might list on regular resume - public speaking, but a 15 second video of you talking in front of 1,000 people would be a lot different feeling. I have close connections with some big corporations and want to change how we deliver the resume also. I'm visioning having a cool logo on IBM's human resource page. They can fax resume now, or upload resume but why not link resume to fullresume. I can get software written to do this but describing it is first step. Imagine the standard resume that could be printed, but to set up account website has mandatory 10-second video introduction. Be thinking about what employers want to know about someone. I have had small and midsized companies and the process is still the same...outdated. why can't someone login and setup their account and take personality test, and hide or give approval during per-interviewing stage.
statistics show that 80% or more are unhappy with their jobs, so why can't this site not be all about resumes when you look for a job but an online business scrapbook. Where you post pictures of awards, brochures created....i'm thinking its a site that is simple to setup but when if you have time it can go deep into details.
People might not be happy at their job, but they are scared to post their resume anywhere in fear someone may find out, so this site is not for people looking for a job right now, but more like a place where its ok to put up your business accomplishments. No one likes seeing status updates on FB that some agent sold another house, but this site might have an AWARDS section and even though she is happy at her current place, she is going to be excited about listing 2013 Gold Circle "20,000,00" Club. and guess what that means.... recruiters will love this site because they can seek out talented people and in confidence send them a message.
I'm seeing the site as free, the revenue will come from a "Ways to Improve" Tab - where there are revenue sharing splits or paid advertisements for resume writers, reputation defender, personality tests, other qualification testings, certifications, MBA/education companies. I also like to "send gift" that FB added, so maybe thats another source.
i can see devising a marketing plan to target all major universities guidance & job placement counselors, and another plan for getting large companies to add a "LINK-TO" site instead of uploading the traditional 2 page word doc. I can see employees say, he i'll pass your resume along but it will be better if you have a "FullResume" profile set up than just handing me the 2 page document.
i may also try and find a decent name in addition to [url removed, login to view] that is more like [url removed, login to view] that one is taken but you know what i mean.
