Anatomy of a Bashfully profile
Our vision is to change the way people share their experience and tell their story. This is the first step on that journey.
The abstract is the bit at the top of the profile. There
are currently two formulas to enter, but we are always looking
at more ways to express what journey you are on.
This also includes your profile picture, a way for you to
share your profile, and any links to other networks that
people can find you on.
"My story" building blocks - Era
Here is an example. Think of the title as the chapter
heading in your life story. The descrption is then how you
would describe this era to someone you have just met.
The tags under each area of experience allow you to highlight the skills that are applicable. This will be used later to help generate skills based profiles dynamically. You can also highlight one piece of experience in each era as "key expereince".
Remember the experience that you add doesn't have to be just jobs and education from your CV, with our integrations you can add Flickr photosets, GitHub repositories, and more!
On our roadmap we will be adding further support for CV imports, as well as importing your profiles from Facebook and Google+. We also have the ability to adapt different version of your profile, called lenses, to highlight experience in a particular area, and then share those as well. This is described below.
This view re-organises the profile into a standard resume/CV format common for apllicants with relevant experience. Starting with a personal statement made from your era descriptions, followed by your work experience, education, and finally any portfolio pieces from the GitHub, Flickr or other integrations
Qualification or skills based
This view re-organises the profile into a standard resume/CV format for student or graduates. Starting with a personal statement made from your era descriptions, followed by your education, any portfolio pieces from the GitHub, Flickr or other integrations and then finally work experience
This view creates a Word Cloud from your tagged skills. (So getting tagging your experience!) This also provides a summary of which bits of experience contributed, for example your work experience, education, and finally any portfolio pieces from the GitHub, Flickr or other integrations
This creates a view that tailors your profile for a specific purpose. This gives you a URL that you can share that will only contain the Era text and experience that you select. If you do not select any experience in an era then the era description will be hidden. Highlight your experience or education depending on what your needs are, without more data entry.
