What is a zygadoc?

When typewriters existed resumés made sense. But now they don’t. Now you have the freedom to choose how to advertise your unique value and capabilities. Resumés are old inventions that haven't evolved to best represent you in an increasingly competitive working world. They de-personalize you into a few dry words on a bland page and trigger a painful response every time an employer sees them.

So, we decided to create something different. It’s called a zygadoc®. A human-centric document that empowers you to achieve the potential of your personal brand. It eclipses the traditional CV with features that capture important personality traits and accomplishments that resumés can't. Want to upload a video? Sure. Link in your social media? OK. Upload documents that you worked on for universities or work projects? Go ahead.

Deep Dive!

Grab a coffee and read the in-depth version:

Your zygadoc is FREE!

To create, save and export your zygadoc, we don't charge. $0, nada, zilch, it's FREE with no catches. We love to help people like you (because we've been in your shoes!) and we didn't want to hide all that zygadoc goodness behind a paywall.

Export as PDF or Word

While your zygadoc has been developed to be cutting edge and future proof, we get that your document must also be relevant to how the job-hunting process is done right now. So a zygadoc can be downloaded as a PDF and emailed to prospective employers, just like a traditional PDF resumé created in Word or Indesign.

You can also export your zygadoc to an ATS-compliant Word document (.doc) to help get you at the top of the pile when applying for job positions.

When paper and PDFs go the way of the dodo (extinct), we've already got you covered.

Fast & Customisable

Want to ruin someone's day? Tell them their resumé needs to be updated and listen closely as a deep guttural moaning escapes their throat, it's like a scene from The Exorcist.

For most people, updating a resumé is a God awful experience...remember that last fight you had with Word's archaic formatting system? It's enough to make your toes curl.

From the start, we wanted the zygadoc experience to speedy, so you potentially have one ready to send in minutes as opposed to hours or even days. So we implemented a few things to make it fast:

  • Pre-built Layouts: You never have to start from scratch.
  • Chunks: Move sections around as you require without the formatting blowing up in your face.
  • Code: We coded the technology so that there is zero lag.

Speed is another reason zygadocs beat resumés. Every damn time.

In-built Resumé Coach

Powerful technology is great but we have also implemented some valuable social science into the zygadoc DNA. When filling out a zygadoc social science tips will make themselves available to you to ensure that you are filling out sections correctly.

For example, did you know that by implementing statistics from past jobs in your experience section it can alter an employers perspective of you and improve hiring outcomes? This is one of the social science nuggets that will help you land your dream job. Humans and recruitment software look for keywords and capabilities on resumés and we’ll make sure you’ve got them all.

Update Anywhere

Often, we get our best ideas when we're away from our computer - on the bus, walking to the office, while we're shopping...at least half of our zygadoc features were conceived in the shower!

Your zygadoc can be accessed and updated wherever you have mobile reception or wifi, so you'll never miss the opportunity to tune your perfect resumé killer.

Professional Design

Few people know how to craft an effective resumé and fewer still have the design know-how to build a visually attractive document. But that's not our fault, most of us just aren't designers.

When you build a zygadoc, you don't need to be! We do the heavy lifting for you with professional templates, graphic design guidelines woven into our code and the ability to embed media that makes you shine.

Embed Media

Despite being the current standard for personal-branding documents, resumés you can't effectively integrate media such as video bios, audio recordings, images, and other supporting documents.

Why is something like video integration important? Well, think about just how much non-written information can be gleaned from a 15-second video of you talking about yourself. Or an audio clip, or a photo that was taken at the right moment. Your gestures, the tones in which you convey your message, your overall posture. These things are your interpersonal characteristics and they help to tell a story impossible with words alone.

Your zygadoc has been designed to place media into its pages from the get-go, allowing recruiters to get a faster and more accurate evaluation of you as a WHOLE person.

With a zygadoc, you're already worlds apart from the rest of the field who still sport those musty old-school resumés.

Autosaved Always

Your zygadoc automatically saves so you never lose your work. When your kids test the aerodynamics of your laptop, your zygadoc is safe, even if your sanity isn't.

Bank-Grade Security

Your information is super important, so we employ 256 bit SSL encryption to ensure it's protected by security fit for the banks. Put it this way, if you are Batman (I hope you are), think of us as Alfred. We've always got your back.
