Imagine with me for a second— 🤔
You’re fresh out of university, ready to apply to your first adult job. You’ve found a great opportunity, full of perks and promise.
The only problem?
Your resume is way too short to get noticed by the hiring manager.
One of the main concerns for students and young professionals just starting out in their careers is that the standard resume doesn’t cut it. The core of a traditional resume is the work history section, but it’s tough to write a good resume when you’ve got no experience to speak of. 📜

But the thing is that students and young professionals do have experience. They’ve won science fair awards, volunteered at food banks, marched for climate change, and come up with brilliant, world-changing ideas. The real problem is simply that a standard resume offers no space for these achievements and life experiences.
That’s why we created Goodwall’s web profile! 🚀

A Modern Resume for Young Professionals
Every Goodwall member, whether student, entrepreneur, young professional, or otherwise, receives their own unique web profile page as part of the package! Equipped with its own URL, you can show off way more than the standard education and work history a regular resume would permit. A member’s proudest win or experience gets special placement front and center.
The traditional resume of the past offered no room to showcase volunteer experiences with a photo of your time or videos summing up your skills and ideas, for instance. You were only able to list the basics, such as your skills, work history, and academic past.
With the web profile feature on Goodwall, you can do all that and more. From highlighting non-work experiences and accomplishments to including images to illustrate your proud past events and video to use as a virtual elevator pitch, the Goodwall web profile is the traditional resume turned on its head for the digital age.
Ideal for internships and first jobs, as well as everything to follow!
