New digital resume app PresentMe opens doors to employment

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

PresentMe is an exciting new, digital resume app currently being trialed with ten rangatahi at Tokoroa High School and Forest View High School.

PresentMe has the potential to change futures for youth across Aotearoa, by enabling them to present themselves well, using the latest technologies in the digital space, to potential employers.

The app merges traditional resumes with the modern world of technology and allows several different elements to be incorporated together, including education and work experience, and videos that allow the user to create a script and share the information that may be asked at a first interview.

This sample profile from a young man at Te Kauwhata College, shows how key elements can come together to present a well-crafted and presented resume including:

  • Clear, contemporary visuals and design

  • a short two-minute video ‘pitch,’

  • employment history

  • education

  • hard and soft skills

  • goals for the nearby future

  • contact information.

The founders of the PresentMe are working alongside the Ministry of Social Development and the Ministry of Education to test the app and ensure it will meet the needs of young people entering the workforce.

Once finalised the app will be accessible and user-friendly, giving young people the tools they need to secure jobs, scholarships, and volunteer or internship roles.
