After this, there's no turning back. You take the red pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the blue pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

How to Turn Your LinkedIn Profile into a Career Video - Business 2 Community

How to Turn Your LinkedIn Profile into a Career Video - Business 2 Community | Social Media Products and Tools | Scoop.it

The good news: recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates for jobs. The bad news: there are 260 million LinkedIn profiles out there, making it rather difficult to stand out.

Here’s a solution: new tool Resu-MEtransforms your LinkedIn profile into a compelling career video complete with a voice-over and a handy infographic – in just a few clicks. You then get a unique URL to share on social networks.

Just like tools like Vizify and BrandYourself do cool things with Twitter and your online presence in general, Resu-ME are using the API straight from your LinkedIn profile (which you have to authorise).
