A CV used to be the tool, that would get your candidate noticed, no longer.

Bios are today’s go-to career communication for three simple reasons, driven by massive societal shifts:

  1. The rise of social media. “digital first” the concept that the first place we learn about things (and people) is online. Your candidates bio is a way to be there when you as the recruiter are not.
  2. The crumbling of the work/life wall. Business is truly a human endeavor. People hire and choose to work with people they know, like and trust. The bio lets you paint an image of your candidate and a CV puts up a wall by focusing on credentials and experience.
  3. The need for brand-building continuity. A CV is a tool for when your candidate is looking to get hired. A Bio is a personal branding tool that will help your candidate being more noticed on the APSO Talent Share platform. It’s not attached to a job or a series of jobs. It’s the true picture of your candidate’s personal brand.
