The queen of Prime Time herself Oprah Winfrey says “How you spend your time defines who you are.” And we won’t be the ones to argue. But recruiters also use the information on how you spend your time to gauge what your interests and priorities are. That’s why I’ve heard a variation of “What does your typical day look like?” at quite literally every job interview I’ve had. Chances are, you’ve been asked that question plenty, too.
We decided to create a visually engaging “My Time” section for Enhancv and it has proven to be a very useful way of attracting recruiters’ attention. We recently included “My Time” in all Enhancv subscription plans, as we’re sure it’s a valuable section that sets your resume apart.
Use “My Time” creatively
But “My Time” is not just about … well, time. We’ve seen some very creative examples by our users. They use the graph to showcase industry experience, types of roles previously held, weekly routines, priorities, or anything you can think of. Here are some examples:
We decided to have some fun and imagine different uses of the My Time section. Could we use it to show what a perfect date looks like on a dating resume? Or could we tell potential flatmates what a perfect weekend would be? Turns out that yes, we can.
Win with Enhancv
Now it’s your time to shine! Show us how you’d use the “My Time” section”. It may be serious or it may be wacky – if it’s cool, your submission can win you a custom t-shirt and a 3-month Pro plan for Enhancv.
