Things I Can Do

In a manner very similar to 43 Things and 43 Places Kinan has highlighted a new site called Things I Can Do as a potential Resume 2.0 tool.

While the tool is interesting it really only shows a portion of what a resume needs to cover. From JobWeb a resume is:-

a one or two page summary of your education, skills, accomplishments, and experience. Your resume’s purpose is to get your foot in the door. A resume does its job successfully if it does not exclude you from consideration.

Things I Can Do seems to only focus on the skills and excludes the accomplishments, experience and education.  It allows user to tag their skills provide a brief summary, maybe this could be used to highlight how the skills has been used, and allow people to rate and comment.
It is a good start on building out a framework for the online resume but seems to be focused more on the tagging concept than building an effective job seeking tool.

  1. thanks for the post. I’ve sent you an email, did you get it? I am already working on improving the site and allowing users to add more information to their profiles.. education, achievement, experience, etc.. hopefully one step closer to a better resume.
