New digital resume launches at Monaco

ADVERTISEMENT

USP Profile, a digital resume company, went live at the Monaco Yacht Show, giving crew a chance to add video to their resume to showcase their personality alongside their credentials.

Crew are guided through completing each element of the USP Profile, which includes a video presentation, photos, written introduction, role aspirations, professional history, education, skills ratings, personality presentation and references.

Once complete, the profile can be shared via unique URL, or downloadable PDF.

“Personality is crucial when evaluating a candidate for a front-end position, working with guests and fellow crew,” said USP Profile founder Jens Oomes. “However, having the x-­factor just does not stand out on paper. Our vision is to establish the USP Profile as an industry standard resume format for crew to tell recruiters who they are, not just what they are.”

Crew can use the basic version of the profile for free, or upgrade to an annual premium profile to have access to additional features. For more information and to sign­up, visit www.uspprofile.com.
