Resumes are considered to be the most important facet for the first level of recruiting. The first official resume was written by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1482. Even after 500+ years, the resume is still used as the first point of interface with the recruiters.
Job sites, recruiters, hiring managers, head hunters: all use resumes to screen prospects. However, with varied representation formats, lack of authenticity checks, and lifeless appearance, resumes have been losing significance.
The very fact that it is individual-driven leads to a non-standardized representation of facts. At times they highlight the non-essentials and ignore the more important aspects required for a specific job. The authenticity of the representations, along with the diversity in representation, makes it very difficult for the recruiters to screen and shortlist applicants.
Moreover, the lack of personal representation associated with traditional resumes makes it very difficult for the recruiter to make an effective shortlist, leading to high rate of rejections even after the first level of screening.
Recent studies have highlighted various concerns and flaws associated with traditional resumes: a recruiter on an average views a resume for only 6 to 10 seconds, 61% of recruiters dismiss a resume as they contains typing errors, and only about 17% of the recruiters ever read the cover letter associated with a resume.
The Biofie is an attempt to address all the above issues and provide a more effective representation of one’s profile by using the available technology at both online and offline front.

About Biofie Logo
biofie derives its name and inherits some of its characteristics from a bio-data(biographical data) and sel-fie (self-portrait photograph).
The representation of the 'biofie' logo is created using symbols to encapsulate the purpose and objectives of the services it aims to offer.
Everyone admires beauty and its unique balance in nature. This balance and perception of beauty has been attributed to the Divine Proportion that gives certain things their exquisiteness.
The Divine Proportion presents itself in the very physical nature of Creation. It is the harmony and glue that holds the unity of the universe. ‘biofie’ has been conceptualized to balance the projection of self(jobseeker/candidate) with typical expectation from the others (Employers) in order to build and foster a symbiotic relationship.
The logo embodies the principles of Divine Proportion where the ratio of its base to its height is 1.61.
The presence of circles in the letters b, o and partly in f, e represent the infinite nature of energy, and the inclusivity of the universe. This alludes to the fact that the more comprehensive and holistic is the profile representation of the candidate, the greater is the element of positivity surrounding the process of recruitment and selection.
The Thick vertical lines which are a part of the letters: b, i, f ; suggest strength and stability. They are also filled with potential energy, which can be used to energise the nearby elements. A candidate possessing a ‘biofie’ profile is sure to create a meaningful impact.
The red squares completing the letter i at two places symbolizes manifestation of ideas into reality.
In the meaning of colors, blue relates to one-to-one communication, especially communication using the voice - speaking the truth through verbal self-expression which is in sync with what ‘biofie’ seeks to deliver both to the jobseeker and the employer participating in the recruitment and selection process.
