Inspired from MemoryMaps, i prepared a resume using Google Earth for me. How did i prepare? Firstly, i grouped my googleEarth Cv into six sections. They are; personal, education, work experiences, trend reporting, awards and interests. Secondly, i assign different colours of placemark to each group. Then, i placemarked and add some description to related locations. Final step is exporting my placemarks. That’s all.

I am sure that using innovative medium like Google Earth for resume would be impressive for potential employers. And a final note, i am happy to be self employed and not looking for a job. :)

If you liked the concept please digg it

UPDATE2: Thanks Gizmodo for this great news.

UPDATE3: Philipp Lenssen kindly uploaded it in google map format. Thank you very much

UPDATE4: Here is my comment on James Fee blog

Good points James
I totally agree that using .klm format does not mean additional value.

And i believe that it is all about differentiating and telling stories with innovative mediums. I mean content of resume is not message. Message is “i believe power of technology” and “i’d like to differentiate myself from .pdf masses”

Hi! You can also display KMZ files on Google Maps (well, some of them). Just put it on a publicly accessible URL. Would be interested to hear if you do…

Watch out. This idea could be patentable. Any one else who wants to use it may get sued.

Hello Ozgur,

Wonderful, smart, awesome idea. Congratulations ! I should have had the same idea before ;-)

ps : why are you happy to be self-employed ? Your resume is not that appealing ?…

Take care, and keep going !

nice work…

Hey, that’s pretty cool!

A word of caution though. If you do choose to enter the market, you may find it advantageous to comform to expectations in some way.

Not that there won’t be people willing to get past their expectations, but that you could be limiting your options.

I suspect you already know this, but there are some folks who get more attached to their desire to be unique than is helpful.

That’s awesome! Great post Ozgur… I just found your blog today, I look forward to reading more of it and seeing your other ideas. Plus, I’ve been trying to learn a little Turkish so it’s nice to find someone in Turkey! Ben yalniz biraz Turkce konusabiliyorum. Tanistigimiza cok memnum oldum :)

While I can see that this is an innovative idea, I’m not sure how many recruiting managers are going to spend the time downloading a whole heap of images just to get some basic information that they would normally expect to able to glance at on paper. I think this would only work to your advantage if you were going for a job that wanted ability with graphics or that prized creativity/innovation.

its very good to develop the skills

Ozgur – brilliant. I am sad I didn’t find it earlier. This is exactly the way to infiltrate companies – by bringing something to the table that showcases your talents, and here, your creativity.

Well done.

I think the last point you make that is important, keeping technology up to date. We buy the latest Dell servers for our customers and they have proved so popular since launch I can’t see this ever changing. If you look at all our products they are amongst the best in the UK for their tech specs and thats the way we like it.
