The SIS Student Resume is a collection of resume, photos and bios that students can use for job applications, online and in-person interviews.
The Resume was created to provide the student with an alternative way to submit their resume for interviews.
“Theres an opportunity to apply for jobs, but also to develop a personal brand and the ability to communicate that through your resume,” SIS Researcher and Assistant Professor of Communication and Media at the University of Pisa, Andrea Girotto told L’Aquila newspaper.
Theres an incentive to have a professional resume and to create it through this service.
“If you have a high GPA and youre a professional athlete, you can get paid for your resume, but if you dont, then you dont have a resume to work off.”
Theres also an opportunity for the student to showcase their work on social media, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.
Girotti, who works with students, explained that the service helps students to “keep their image in front of the public, and this is a big help for the students who are interested in pursuing a professional career.”
However, Girotto said the service is not meant to replace the job applications process.
“In this sense, this service is more of an extension of the applications, but it also gives the student the opportunity to get an interview and show their professional image,” she said.
“It can also be a very useful tool for students who want to work on their personal brand in the field of journalism or sports journalism.”
The Sis Resume has been downloaded more than 5 million times since its launch.
