Tin It Or Bin It – 14 July 2012 – Pathbrite
This week we are looking at Pathbrite, a free digital platform that allows you to present your achievements online by constructing visual portfolios.
As the web becomes more visual, so too are online CVs and portfolios.
The idea behind Pathbrite is that traditional CVs and portfolios don’t give prospective employers or clients enough information about the individual and provide a true representation of their character.
It is aimed at 18-to-25 year old students and young job seekers, however the portfolio function is also ideal for designers, PRs and anyone in the creative industries looking for an easy and attractive way to showcase work. You can include articles, pieces of code, design projects and media coverage sourced from YouTube and Dropbox.
For the jobseekers out there, you can present evidence of learning, skills, and accomplishments in an eye-catching customised way. Once you had added your info you can also link your Pathbrite page to various social network accounts.
We have signed up to the service and played about with it. It was extremely user friendly and quick to upload examples of media coverage in a visually appealing way.
This is a great startup and although it is aimed more at students and jobseekers, we think it will be a great way to display our coverage to clients. Check out the results of our experiment here.
