Starting with a Premium account
You just got your Premium account and we are very happy to see you there !
Please take a few minutes to look at this article where we'll show you what a Premium accounts gives you and how you can use your subscription to its fullest.
In this article
With every yearly subscription to a Premium account, you get a domain name. You can choose it during your subscription, if you haven't you can still configure it.
This domain name will become the main access to your professional profile. Therefore, think about all the place where your name is mentionned and add this domain to it : email signature, business card, social networks... By doing so, you'll help broadcast your profile and one day, that might land you an opportunity.
For information : your former web address www.doyoubuzz.com/firstname-lastname will still be active, it will only redirect all traffic to your new domain name.
When you set up you domain, it will take between 4 to 12 hours before it works perfectly. Then there is the propagation time before your domain name can be accessed by everybody.
Once you have your own domain name, you can set up email aliases such as firstname.lastname@example.org. You can have as much of those as you want.
If you want to do so, please have a look at our guide : Set up the email aliases.
As a Premium user, you have access to al the web, PDF and mobile designs. Take some time to choose which onee suits you best !
Regarding the color, Premium users can add some flavour to their resume by choosing whichever color while be used for their designs, without being limited to a small number of colors for each design.
If you want to create your own print design, for example if you prefer a word format instead of the PDF we offer, you can upload your own print resume instead of the DoYouBuzz generated one.
Premium users can choose what is displayed on their print resume.
In order to do so, you need to go to the "Design" menu, then to "Paper" and select the design you want. After this is done, you'll find a "Content to display" button at the bottom of the page where you'll have a list of what can be shown or not on your resume.
Without a Premium account, you can see how many people have a look at your resume.
As a Premium user, with Google Analytics, you get more information on people who visit your resume such as their geographic origin, how long they spend on your resume, where did they came from (Google, e-mail, website...) and some more.
In order to get all those informations, you just need to créer a Google Analytics account (it's free) et link it to your account. Please note that it'll take a few days before you get any usefull stats.
For your information : When you visit your own resume, we don't count this a visit in your stats.
When you become a Premium Cuser, we erase all comment of DoYouBuzz on your web, PDF and mobile resume.
If you want to also erase your resume URL (which on a monthly Premium subscription will mention doyoubuzz), you can uncheck "URL of my resume" on the "Content to display" section (see Advanced content display on print design).
As a PRemium user, you can have as many resumes as you want.
If you apply in another country or if you resume will be read by foreign people, you can have a translation of your main resume in many different languages.
To do so, you just need to go to the Manage my resumes page, and click on "Create a new translation of this resume".
Premium users can have as many portfolios as they want.
Those enable you to showcase your skills in a different way. Even if your are not the creative type, you can enhance your resume with presentations, report, screenshots... or even a picture of you in your work environment.
