I recently had a friend message me saying that one of his friends works for a company who is looking for everything from project managers, to programmers, to SEO specialists (Meeee!!!!! lol) and that I should apply if I needed some extra cash. Now this extra cash isn't minimum wage, or a little higher, it's actually a salary position at a multi million dollar company and I'd be able to work from home after I get the position, so that was pretty intriguing
So I looked through the job openings and the one that fit me best was for the search engine specialist where I would basically be working with their wordpress websites and optimizing them for the search engines. I think all that I would have to do is the on page optimization, so that's pretty easy but can be time consuming.
I was going to upload my resume to their application process but there was also an option to copy/paste my resume and I had the idea of setting up a website resume to show my skills
Now since I'll be working with their wordpress clients I knew exactly what I was going to do.
Buy a domain with "ResumeOf" and then my first and last name in it. Example: www.ResumeOfRazzy.com
Buy a premium wordpress theme that was set up as a resume.
Set up a hosting plan through the company I always use.
Get a logo made for the theme.
Now I've gotten everything but the logo made because that takes some time, a few days most likely.
I'll be able to use my resume website as a type of pitch as to why this company should hire me to do all the on page optimization work that is needed. And since I'm setting up a wordpress website as my resume it will show that I know exactly what to do with their clients websites instead of them looking over some text in a resume and then having to meet with me 1 on 1. Now I'm sure I'll have to go in and talk with them since they'll need me to sign some documents if they do decide to hire me. But by doing this it shows I can think outside of the box and that I'm not a beginner
Have any of you done something similar to this to get a full time job or freelance job?
