Turn your resume into an interactive timeline

March 21, 2013: 4:05 PM ET

Career site Beyond.com has a nifty new tool that turns your resume into an interactive timeline with graphics.

I gave it a try. Check it out here. You can customize your page through various modules that highlight awards, publications, professional certifications and your skill sets.

If you had numerous short-term jobs (as I did in college), they tend to get jumbled in this format. Of course, if you have a longer career history, you'll probably want to leave those college jobs and internships off your digital resume entirely.
