Twitsume’ allows users to share their resumes online

Local web application development company, White Wall Web, has announced the immediate availability of Twitsumé, a free online application that enables Twitter users, to capture their résumé in a Twitter-friendly format and share it with their Twitter networks and the world.

Peter Flynn, managing director of White Wall Web says that Twitsumé, which has been developed entirely on South African soil, was built using technology derived from the company’s online recruitment platform PersonL and uses a professional format geared to aid recruiters looking for potential candidates.

“Today, it pays to ensure that your information is easily accessible by prospective employers, both local and international, and Twitsumé assists users in further perpetrating their online space,” says Flynn. “All Twitter users need to do is log in at http://twitsume.com/ link up to Twitter and capture or upload their résumés.

“They can also opt to input their history and information manually including all aspects generally associated with résumé compilation like personal information and languages spoken, work experience, education and computer literacy, and personal strengths and interests.”

Further, Twitsumé caters for privacy, allowing users to choose which sections of their résumé are public and which are private.

“Twitter is currently one of the hottest online profile building tools available on the Web,” says Flynn. “What Twitsumé does is offer Twitter users a leg up in the employment and recruitment space with the inclusion of a full list of their credentials in a Twitter-like format that integrates seamlessly with their existing Twitter account.”
